Being set-up from October 5 – 7, creators will have the opportunity to utilise the venue over the two days to produce content. They will get free access to the production equipment and themed production sets, to produce original production content for their own YouTube channels.
Marc Lefkowitz, Head of YouTube Creator and Artist Development, APAC said, “It’s an incredibly exciting and inspiring time to be in India, especially for video content. Over 245 million unique users are coming to YouTube in India every month, and they continue to love and engage with the content that creators are putting out. In 2014, we had 16 YouTube channels with more than 1 million subscribers in India and today that number is over 300. We’re adding two more channels to the list almost every single week, which is an astounding rate of growth. We continue to invest heavily in growing and nurturing the creator community and are thrilled to bring the YouTube Pop-Up Space to the capital.”
