The successful entrepreneur and internet celebrity Gary Vaynerchuk announced that VeeCon, a convening that showcases leaders from business, Web3, and pop culture, will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana from May 18th to May 20th, 2023. VeeFriends Series 1 token holders will have exclusive access to the event. The VeeFriends NFT collection originally featured 10,255 NFTs and sold for a higher price than the second iteration which featured 55,555 NFTs and is currently on sale through OpenSea.
Vaynerchuk built the VeeCon last year, which was a wild success, to nurture ideas and traits that he believes lead to happiness and success. He also solidified his beliefs in the importance of NFTs and their future by making VeeCon the world’s first NFT-ticketed conference.
“Right now, we’re using plastic QR codes and email confirmation codes for many things that the blockchain will eat up because it’s better technology, and that will just take some time.” said Vaynerchuk.
VeeCon 2023 will feature an interesting blend of education and entertainment with artists, influencers, and key pop culture celebrities attending alongside keynote speeches, innovative and educational talks, panels, and interviews. Gary preferred choosing small cities, such as Minneapolis and Indianapolis, to keep participants more centrally located.
