02 February 2015

Summer in the City, one of the largest YouTube events in the world, will relocate to ExCeL London from Alexandra Palace later this year.

The seventh annual gathering of YouTube viewers, content creators and brands will be held on 15th and 16th August 2015, with a day targeted towards industry professionals and content creators on August 14th 2015. The organisers will utilise ExCeL's flexible event space to host a variety of live stage performances, Q&A sessions, meet & greet opportunities, screenings and brand exhibitions.

The move to ExCeL will support the organiser's (Vlogger Events Ltd) ambition to grow their event, allowing more creators and fans to visit over the 3-days.

Commenting on the move to ExCeL London, James Rees, Executive Director said. "We are delighted to be the host venue for what's set to be the biggest Summer in the City yet and will support their ambition to grow the event now and in the future. For this cutting-edge event, ExCeL provides a state-of-the art, modern environment for people to come, get creative, express their ideas and be inspired. It's fantastic to be welcoming brands such as YouTube, as well as the likes of Adobe, LinkedIn and Hewlett Packard, in what will be our busiest ever year."

Tom Burns, Founder of Summer in the City, adds: "This year will be Summer in the City's biggest year yet, as we once again expect to see thousands of attendees from across the globe. We're really excited to be at ExCeL this year and feel that it is just the beginning of much larger things to come, as our event continues to grow with the YouTube platform and is seen as one of the most prestigious YouTube events in the world. This year's programming will once again focus on all current trends of the YouTube platform, allowing us to provide a valuable experience to all of our attendees, whether they are content creators, industry professionals or YouTube viewers."
