For the third straight year, serial entrepreneur and VeeFriends founder Gary Vaynerchuk (aka Gary Vee) will host an annual conference that combines elements of business, pop culture and Web3.

Here's the details on VeeCon 2024 and the first round of speakers announced.

VeeCon 2024: After hosting VeeCon in the Midwest cities of Minneapolis and Indianapolis, VeeCon 2024 heads west to California.

VeeCon 2024 will be held in Los Angeles, California, at the L.A. Live Entertainment District, Aug. 9 – Aug. 11.

The event will be hosted by Vee and VeeFriends, the NFT collection and entertainment brand founded by Vee.

"With its world-class venues and accessibility, Los Angeles offers a dynamic environment for attendees to engage and connect with each other," Vee said previously of the host city. "We're incredibly excited to bring a one-of-a-kind experience to the city of L.A. and VeeCon attendees in 2024."

Vee has previously said he was influenced by South by Southwest and smaller business conferences. The entrepreneur calls VeeCon a business conference layered with a lot of pop culture. Vee told Benzinga previously to think of VeeCon as "Young Davos meets SXSW."
