If you missed the last blog recap of DailyVee episode 603, it was all about the opening day of VeeCon, which kicked off with the Thursday night welcome party. Today’s blog dives into day 2 – the first full day of the conference – and I’m fired up for you all to learn what went down. Keep reading for a glimpse of how it all happened, from my opening keynote with comedians doing impressions of me, to my favorite part – meeting and taking selfies with as many VeeCon attendees as possible!
To relive the day in its entirety, check out DailyVee episode 604 at the end of this blog. I hope you enjoy!
VeeCon Day 2 – May 20, 2022
I already knew that day 2 was when shit would really get real… so I closed out night 1 with this PSA advising everyone to get their rest, pace themselves, and show up bright and early for the first official full day:

After a successful kickoff party, day 2 – for me – was all about over-delivering on value for the thousands of people who decided to attend the conference. As soon as the day started, I was just locked in to a different kind of energy and totally focused on making sure everyone had a great time.

A Look Inside VeeCon
I’m so incredibly grateful for my teams and all the volunteers who helped put this conference together. From the ferris wheel and the flea market to the gaming station, Candy Digital interactive booth and all the panel discussions, everyone was heads-down for months making sure this would be an amazing experience for the community… and I think we got there 🙂

Just like that, it was time for my opening keynote speech, which I did with a little help from some… familiar faces 👀
⭐️THE MESSAGE/TONE⭐️— Steve (@NFTbark) May 27, 2022
The tone @garyvee set from the opening keynote was perfect. He encouraged people (even introverts) to network and drove home the importance of kindness/ positivity. He hit on it again in the final keynote. Not the floor. Not sales. Kindness.

I almost didn’t come to @veecon because I wasn’t sure that I fit in anymore. Today as I listened to @garyvee keynote I realized that VeeCon is more than just the silos we limited ourselves to in clubhouse and I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone. I love you all 🏼— Sara Jones #SeeYouAtNFTNYC (@theluvjonze) May 20, 2022
I was so humbled by the support of everyone at VeeCon and the entire VeeFriends community… I had to sneak in a special surprise.
I am telling eveyone to be at the main stage at 815 … I promise u don’t want to miss what we have in surprise for you— Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) May 21, 2022
I really wanted to do something extremely special for just the people who were actually at VeeCon – free fractional shares of my original artwork featuring an exclusive, brand new character… VeeCon Viper!
