Will the 'immersive live show' return for 2018?

Hello World Live was one of the biggest, and most controversial, YouTuber events of 2017. After all the various drama about VIP tickets and YouTuber interactions, the question on everyone's lips is: will it return for 2018?

Why wouldn't it?

Following the generally negative press the event received, despite its stellar line-up, the event organisers might not wish to risk the same drama again. Some of the bigger YouTubers in the line-up were shareholders in the event and so they might not want to risk their brand being damaged, especially as some of them have had a shaky end of 2017.

Any official word yet?

Nothing has been officially stated yet, but if Hello World hopes to follow in the footsteps other big YouTuber events like Summer In The City and VidCon, then it will aim to be an annual event that takes place at the same time each year. The second we have any official word on Hello World Live 2018, we'll be the first to let you know.
