YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki Tops VidCon 2015 Speaker Lineup (Exclusive)

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is returning as a headline presenter at VidCon, the online-video biz’s biggest fan event, which is trying to expand itself into an industry confab as well.

Wojcicki, who took over the reins at YouTube in February 2014, spoke last year at the event. She leads the list of keynote speakers at the 2015 VidCon, which will take place July 23-25 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Other speakers are scheduled to include Jim Lanzone, president and CEO of CBS Interactive; Ze Frank, president of BuzzFeed Motion Pictures; HLN’s Albie Hecht; Greycroft Partners’ Mark Terbeek; and David Beebe, head of Marriott’s original content studio.

“I was a big advocate of Google’s acquisition of YouTube back in 2006 when the platform was just a year old,” Wojcicki said in a statement. “Now that we’re celebrating YouTube’s 10th birthday, VidCon is the perfect place to reflect with the community on how far we’ve come, and focus on the future of online video and all the big opportunities that lie ahead.”

The three-day conference, now in its sixth year, is expected to draw more than 20,000 attendees and 2,000-plus industry pros, according to Jim Louderback, former head of Discovery Digital Networks, who is editorial director of VidCon’s industry track.

“This year’s group of outstanding speakers have been selected to enlighten and inform us of what to expect as an industry, and we’re thrilled to have assembled the very best and brightest in video,” said Hank Green, co-founder of VidCon and host of YouTube shows SciShow, VlogBrothers and Crash Course.
