Organisers have said they are "disappointed" by the amount of criticism Hello World Live received.
The first Hello World Live event, which brought together some of the UK's biggest creators for an "immersive live event", was met with heavy criticism from attendees and those who had read up about the event online. From a lack of organisation to accusations of exploiting children, many were disappointed with their experience.
Hello World Live have now issued a statement in response to the criticism
We reached out to the organisers for comment, and a spokesperson had this to say say:
"We at HelloWorld want to let you know that we are really disappointed and very sorry to hear that some fans feel they did not get the experience they were hoping for. It is the fans that help make these shows so great and we always want to ensure that everyone has an amazing time. We really appreciate everyone’s feedback and we are taking everything on board.
The Hello World event is designed as a new way for fans to see their favourite content creators on stage and a change from the old ‘meet and greet’ style events. The atmosphere at the event was very positive overall and we had venue and event staff on hand to deal in real time with any teething issues on a case-by-case basis. Anyone who has been in touch with our official email address is being responded to on an individual basis and we appreciate fans patience during this process.”
