A creator should have at least 3000 followers on any social media platform to attend the event
Esports engagement startup STAN has announced its upcoming flagship mega event for celebrating India’s Internet creators. Scheduled for 5th November 2023 at Hyderabad’s Enigma The Experience, it will have a creator networking and mixer event where more than 150 content creators, predominantly from the gaming and esports creators, will participate.
Some of the popular personalities who shall attend this year’s event include Lokesh Gamer from Telangana, AS Gaming, Aditech, Telugu Gaming FF, Ishika Plays, Boss Official, Assasins Army, Black Flag Army, Rahul Gaming and Bakwas Talks. These creators have a collective follower base of over 300 million across various social media platforms.
An EY report expects India’s content industry to cross $30.6 billion in valuation by 2023, with a major chunk of digital content creation being dominated by gaming and esports creators.
Speaking about the upcoming event, Parth Chadha, co-founder and CEO of STAN, says, “By facilitating a recurring event that becomes a landmark in the industry, we aim to solidify our position as an enabling force that continuously supports and nurtures the nation’s creators. The Creator Fest 2023 serves as an initial yet significant step towards shaping our broader vision, and we are now looking forward to experiencing it to the fullest.”
Nauman Mulla, co-founder and COO, STAN added that the underlying objective of this endeavour is fostering a vibrant community of creators in India, including both established and aspiring ones, and thus bolstering the creator ecosystem at large.
A creator should have at least 3000 followers on any social media platform to attend the event. This criterion has been set in order to curate a relevant and meaningful environment dedicated to individuals who are passionate about content creation and ultimately ensure that the event objectives are met.
Gaming creator Telugu Gaming FF said, “Anything that STAN does is a boost to our community and, therefore a must-engage for creators like me. So, I am super-excited to be a part of STAN’s upcoming Creator Fest, where I look forward to meeting and interacting with my favourite creators like Lokesh Gamer. I believe this event will offer a fantastic opportunity for creators like us to connect, learn, collaborate and celebrate the craft.”
Over the past six months, STAN has enabled several creators to generate revenues of more than Rs 3 crores through its platform and various brand integrations. To date, they have successfully collaborated with and supported over 2000 creators pan-India, and aim to extend this support to an even larger number of creators in the near future with ongoing and upcoming initiatives such as the STAN Creator Program.
Furthermore, STAN has plans to organize an array of similar mixer and networking events across various Indian cities in the months to come, aiming to foster connections, collaborations, and the establishment of a vibrant ecosystem for creators.
