Case Study: YouTube Shorts Drive-Thru Experience at VidCon with Eflyn Outdoor Digital Signage and Digital Kiosks


VidCon, an annual convention for digital creators held in Anaheim, California, is a hub of innovation, creativity, and community for content creators and their fans. YouTube sought to demonstrate the fun and creativity that thrives on its platform, particularly within the realm of YouTube Shorts. This desire led to the creation of a captivating Drive-Thru experience at VidCon, showcasing the power of YouTube Shorts and celebrating creators.

The Vision:

Christeen Kim, the Director and Global Head of YouTube Shorts Marketing, envisioned a dynamic and engaging presence at VidCon. The goal was to offer attendees a unique experience that would both celebrate the creativity of YouTube Shorts and connect attendees with their favorite creators. The Drive-Thru experience, featuring Eflyn’s custom kiosks with built-in printers, would serve as the vehicle for this vision.

The Drive-Thru Experience:

The Drive-Thru experience was a fully branded and interactive spectacle, purpose-built to engage and energize VidCon attendees, fans, and creators. Over three exhilarating days, attendees discovered the thrill of connecting with creators through personal interactions. The experience was not only enjoyable but also educational, highlighting the magic that unfolds when making or watching YouTube Shorts.
