VeeCon 2023  e1684336120292

It's hard to believe it's been a full year since the first VeeCon, which saw thousands of attendees flood to Minneapolis for the inaugural event. Nonetheless, here we are.

VeeCon, the super conference hosted by Serial Entrepreneur and Creator of VeeFriends Gary Vaynerchuk (aka GaryVee), is back this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana on May 18-20. The second annual event brings together more than 190 world-class speakers - including Fortune 500 CEOs, CMOs, popular culture icons and innovators - who are shaping the future of industry. 

What is VeeCon?

VeeCon was established in 2022 as the first NFT-ticketed super-conference, with access tickets exclusively available for VeeFriends Series 1 digital token holders. The original token holders are able to sell their access tickets on secondary marketplaces such as Opensea which allows a broader audience access. 

The three-day, NFT-ticketed event will be held in two locations in Indianapolis. The first day will be at White River State Park featuring community activities and musical entertainment from Richie Evans, Tia Corine and Busta Rhymes. The second and third days include jam-packed educational and inspiring sessions across multiple stages and brand activations at Lucas Oil Stadium. Evening entertainment inside the stadium includes comedians Esther Povitsky, Andrew Schultz and singer Jordin Sparks. There will be a special entertainment contest featuring Gala Music’s Emily Faye, Just Shockey, and a VeeCon-voted artist. 

This is a conference like no other - and will be the marketing industry event for years to come.
