2/22/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- CVX Live, Utah’s first YouTube convention, is proud to announce a new partnership with Shay Carl of Shaytards, a YouTube channel with over 4 million subscribers, and his Trixin clothing company. A pioneer of YouTube vlogging, Shay broadcasts the everyday adventures of his family, including his wife and five children. The birth of their fifth child reportedly propelled the handle “BroTard” to #1 in popularity on Twitter.
Since selling his multi-channel network, Maker Studios, to Disney in 2014 in a $500 million dollar deal, Shay has founded a clothing company, Trixin, which is known for its casual beanies, hats, and hoodies. Now, Shay is ready for a new challenge. “We are pumped!” said the YouTube creator. “We’ve been to conventions all over the country, and we’re going to utilize everything we’ve learned for this event. It’s going to be awesome!”
Shay will be teaming up with the Roberts family of Bored Shorts TV, the McKnight family of Cute Girls Hairstyles, and Brooklyn & Bailey. “We’re super excited that Shay expressed interest in being involved this year. It’s great to have three YouTube families here with similar values and vision,” said John Roberts, a CVX Live founder. “We felt Utah Valley would benefit from that family-friendly entertainment aspect, and the Shaytards are a great example of that,” added Shaun McKnight, a YouTube content creator. “It’s remarkable what their channel did to the industry, even before people knew what vlogging was. Now vloggers pattern their own channels after the Shaytards.”
In addition to the Shaytards, the convention’s lineup also features talent such as Alex Boye, Stuart Edge, Vocal Point, Studio C, and Peter Hollens.
CVX Live represents a uniquely successful YouTube convention, one of just a few in the Western United States. In its 2015 debut, the convention boasted 6000 attendees, an impressive turnout for a brand new event. “We’ve been to events like this in Los Angeles, Orlando, Dallas, and New York,” said McKnight. “CVX Live has far outpaced all of them in their first years. It’s just phenomenal what’s happened here.”
