Meet & Greet Ballot

Our Meet and Greet ballot will open in the months leading up to the event.



We are running our Meet and Greet system for this year as a ballot system. Ticket holders will sign up to our ballot system’s website and select their top 8 choices for each day that they are attending. The ballot will be open for two weeks to give everyone a chance to register their choices. Once closed, the system will allocate tickets for each YouTuber’s Meet and Greet to the people who chose them.

As with any other year at SitC (and any other YouTube event with the exception of those selling VIP tickets) there is no guarantee that you will meet a certain YouTuber at the event. There is however a high chance that you will be able to experience them live on stage or in a panel at some point over the weekend. We would also like to remind you that many YouTubers like to pop out onto the show floor at times and have spontaneous meet-ups, so there are plenty of opportunities to meet YouTubers.

We really do hope that the new system this year will improve the overall experience for all attendees, meaning less queueing and more enjoying the entire SitC experience!

Meet & Greet FAQ

How will people be selected?

The system will select randomly from all the people who chose a particular YouTuber as their top priority. If there are still spaces left, they will go to people who chose them as their second highest priority, and so on.

There are 300 spaces to meet a certain YouTuber. 200 people have selected them as their first choice, so they all get a place to meet that YouTuber. There are 100 people who didn’t get their first choice, but had that YouTuber as their second choice, so they also receive a meet and greet ticket. All 300 tickets are then allocated.

What are the benefits of this system?

Everybody has an equal chance.

No queue cutting

You know if you will meet someone in advance and can plan other activities around that.

No more standing in queues all day long. You will instead be able to explore talks, panels, stage performances and the exhibition hall!

More safety out-of-hours, as there would be no point in arriving at the venue at 3am.

Can I apply for a meet & greet with my friends?

You can! You will be able to link your ballot account together with up to two other ballot accounts. This will ensure that you’re all entered into the ballot as a group and won’t be split up!

Each member of your group will need to register for their own ballot account and follow instructions carefully on the account linking page. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have checked your accounts are linked before the ballot is drawn.

We decided to limit grouping at three, as it ensures fairer opportunities for everybody attending. We advise that you split into multiple groups if you’re attending with more than three friends – We just didn’t want to force those attending in a group of three to have to split up! It’s also the magic number 🙂

How do I link my tickets into a group?

As noted in the above FAQ, you can link your ticket to a friend’s and ensure you are entered for the ballot together. To do this you will need to:
– Ensure all tickets have their own account
– Log in to your account and go to the day you would like to create a group (Saturday, Sunday, or both individually)
– Scroll down to the bottom of the ballot page and select “Add User” if you are the one who will make the ballot choices.
– Type your friend’s email (it must be the email they signed up to the ballot with) and hit submit.

Alternatviely, if you are not the group leader / have been added by a friend you will need to:
– Scroll down to the bottom of the ballot page and select “Join user” if you are joining your friend’s group (They will make the choices)
– Type your friend’s email (it must be the email they signed up to the ballot with) and hit submit.

Once you have done this on both accounts (one account must add and the other must join) your accounts will be linked.
You can view your linked accounts on your account page below your selected ballot options.

Will my tickets automatically group together if they were bought in the same order?

No they will not. You need to make sure that every ticket holder registers for the ballot individually using their unique ticket ID.

Unforutnately there is nothing that we can for accounts that have not registered for the ballot, or linked themselves to those they intend to group with.

Will I definitely get at least one of my options?

Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that everybody will meet a person within their top five, as each meet and greet has a limited capacity.

The best example we can give here is if someone was to pick the five most-subscribed people for a single day at SitC; These five people may be in a lot of other attendees ballot selections, which means there are more names in the hat for each of those YouTubers.

Will special guests have meet-ups on both days?

Unfortunately not every YouTuber will have a meet up on both Saturday and Sunday. We are trying our hardest to ensure that lots of our guests will be available on both days, but scheduling and personal commitments may not make this possible for every YouTuber.

Why are certain guests only available as options 1-3?

For this year’s ballot we have identified various guests that we expect to fill up with requests early and have limited them to options 1-3.

We’ve done this to help you make the most of your 8 ballot options, as many of these guests will be fully allocated to those who have selected them as their first option.

When will the ballot go live?

Our Meet and Greet ballot will open late June / Early July once the majority of our guests have been finalised.

How long do I have to make my choices?

You will have two weeks from the ballot start date to select your top 8 YouTubers.

How will I be notified about my ballot selections?

Your ballot account will update to show you the status of your applications a week, or so after the ballot has closed.

How does it work for YouTubers doing a joint meet up?

Each Meet & Greet counts as one option, so if two Youtubers have been paired together for a meet and greet it will only count as one option on your ballot.

How will I know which YouTubers are at each meetup

When the ballot launches you will be able to pick your options by Meet & Greet, so you will know who you are meeting and whether they will be alone, or in a group.

How will I collect my tickets?

We will release more infromation on this once the ballot itself is underway. Let’s get your applications in first 🙂
