Hey VaynerNation. As many of you know, last month kicked off the inaugural VeeCon. I’m so, so grateful for every one of you that I met, talked to or snapped a selfie with during those few days, and I’m so excited to meet even more of you at VeeCon 2023. 

That being said, if you missed it this time around, today’s blog is a special VeeCon recap to show you how it all went down. Enjoy this look into a brand new episode 603 of DailyVee – full episode at the end of this blog – where you’ll see sneak peeks of the welcome party, my first steps into the U.S. Bank Stadium and the real reason behind this unique event in my life. 

I hope you enjoy! 

VeeCon Day 0 – May 18, 2022

The day before VeeCon officially started, I touched down in Minneapolis with my team for a first look inside the stadium before everyone arrived. 

Meanwhile, so many of you were still on your way by plane and car, and finding out which VeeFriend loves you with the new VeeFriends Instagram AR filter: 

VeeCon Day 1 – May 19, 2022

Thursday was when we got things started with the VeeCon Welcome Party, which went down on The Commons right outside the stadium. My first move of the day? Scoping out the selfie station where I would post up later that night to meet all of you!

Hail storm…

Despite me pleading with Mother Nature for good weather, VeeCon weekend kicked off with hail… 

Still, that wasn’t enough to get spirits down! 

Welcome Party

Thankfully, the weather cleared up by that evening… just in time for the official Welcome Party! So, so humbled by the hundreds of people waiting patiently in a line that wrapped around the block! 

Once everyone made it in, the good times began. Pickup basketball games, music, and all-around good vibes. 

FEWOCiOUS Paint Party

One of the crowd favorites was the epic paint party with NFT artist and VeeCon speaker, FEWOCiOUS.

Selfie Station

Without a doubt, my favorite part of the Welcome Party was just getting to meet hundreds of you in passing and at the Welcome Party selfie station.

One message for everyone at VeeCon…

My one message to all the VeeCon attendees? Bring happiness. 🙂

Above anything else, I’m so incredibly proud of all the relationships and friendships made. Here’s just a few:
