THE HISTORY OF SNEAKER CON
Sneaker Con was founded in 2009 by Alan Vinogradov, Barris Vinogradov and Yu-Ming Wu.
Our mission: to bring together a growing network of young entrepreneurs, social influencers and trendsetting consumers with a passion for sneakers. Today, that network has grown into the largest of its kind. Over 70,000 people attended 13 Sneaker Con events in 2016. And Sneaker Con partnered with the BET Experience to draw 80,000 people in a single weekend. Our owned network of over 2 million Sneaker Con Instagram followers expands to over 16 million followers with the addition of our Instagram partners which includes Sneaker News and Jordan’s Daily.
And the digital reach of Sneaker Con amplifies the event worldwide—over 25 million owned social media impressions and 140 million audience impressions in 2016.
THE NEW FUTURE OF SNEAKER CON
In 2016, Sneaker Con Media Agency and Sneaker Con International were formed with partners Jeffrey Fried and Paxton Baker to pursue opportunities for global expansion and brand partnerships. Sneaker Con’s successful collaborations in 2016, such as the BET Experience and Sprite Sneaker Con Hoops Classic, form the blueprint of our new role in 2017—a powerful partner that reaches the most influential audience in youth consumer culture. Our continued US growth and international expansion to London, Shanghai and additional cities in China will make 2017 an exponentially bigger year for us and our partners.
