Next week marks the 10th annual Summer in the City event in London celebrating the online space’s best creators and users. Already grown a reputation for drawing in attendees in the thousands, this year looks to be no exception – with plenty of talent from Studio71’s network representing at the three-day event.
Along with the industry awards which celebrates the best influencer campaigns, agencies and managements, Summer in the City is the one UK event established for creators and fans of the online space. It coincides with International Vlogging Day, a day dedicated to encouraging individuals to share their stories with the world.
Both the Industry and Creator day takes place on Friday, providing a chance for creators and industry professionals to meet and attend various talks and presentations. Both Saturday and Sunday are open to fans of the community and will see live performances on the main stage at the Excel Centre, with Bars & Melody performing live and Christine Sydelko, who is visiting from the US, making an appearance.
Luke Cutforth from Studio71’s network will speak on live panels while Emma Blackery, Saffron Barker, Rosie and Rosie, Lee Hinchcliffe, Adam Beales, Nicole Corrales, Lydia Violetta, Lucy Flight and Jasmine Clough will also be present in the event’s meet and greets. Newly launched podcast, Educating Josh, from Studio71 UK’s podcast division will also hold a live recorded episode on Sunday and there will be plenty more of Studio71’s talent attending throughout the weekend, including Brandonio, Emily Canham, Sophia Grace and Niko Omilana.
Alongside live panels and talks covering everything from LGBTQ+ spaces online, to women in gaming and body positivity, this year also welcomes the SitC awards, celebrating the best online stars and content in the online space.
Now, in its tenth year, this Summer in the City will likely be the most talked about yet.
