What is VeeCon 2023?
VeeCon 2023 is a multi-day conference taking place in Indianapolis from May 18-May 20. The event brings together business leaders, artists, pop culture icons, and many others on the cutting edge of innovation. Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk created the conference series, and last year’s inaugural VeeCon was a major hit with attendees.
VeeCon is also the first conference to use NFT technology for ticketing. Holders of VeeFriends, an NFT collection created by Vaynerchuk, have first access to purchase NFTs that function as tickets. After that, they can attend the conference or opt to sell their tickets on secondary NFT marketplaces. As of today, tickets cost .125 eth or $230.

Instructions on the VeeCon website give buyers instructions on how to create a MetaMask wallet, buy Ethereum, and purchase NFTs that function as tickets. This approach fits in with Vaynerchuk’s larger vision of how NFT technology will disrupt our current technology. Ahead of last year’s event, Vaynerchuk predicted, “We will all interact with NFTs because they will be our airline tickets. They will be our receipts, they will be our tickets to US Bank Stadium, they will be our membership cards. Right now, we use plastic, QR codes, and email confirmations for many things I think the blockchain will eat up because it is better technology.”
By using NFTs to sell tickets to VeeCon 2023, Vaynerchuk is providing a real-life example of how NFTs can help simplify our lives. This year’s event features over 140 speakers and panelists and promises to be a rallying point for the Web3 community to push the mainstream adoption of crypto and NFTs forward.
