Having previously graced cities like Indiana and Minnesota, VeeCon has become synonymous with cutting-edge discussions spanning business, marketing, innovation, technology, and popular culture. This year, Vaynerchuk has broadened the scope, diversifying the event beyond its traditional focus on NFTs. While NFTs have played a significant role in past VeeCons, this year’s agenda promises a multifaceted approach, aiming to cater to both mainstream entrepreneurs and the thriving NFT community.
The star-studded lineup of speakers, a hallmark of VeeCon, is yet to be unveiled. Previous years saw illustrious names like Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, and Tim Tebow gracing the stage, sharing insights and sparking inspiration among the attendees.
With Los Angeles serving as the host city, attendees can anticipate an unparalleled experience. The city’s sprawling L.A. LIVE Entertainment District, renowned for its world-class venues and dynamic atmosphere, will be the ideal backdrop for this innovative conference. Spread across more than four million square feet, the venue includes the Peacock Theater, a grand space dedicated to music and theater, accommodating up to 7,100 guests.

With over 65 panels offering diverse and informative discussions, the event showcased the crème de la crème of the business world.
Moreover, VeeCon 2023 showcased a particular focus on the burgeoning world of NFTs.
