Social Media Superstar Logan Paul is Heading to Dubai
American YouTube sensation Logan Paul is to make his first-ever appearance in Dubai, jetting over to the Middle East to speak at our second ITP Live Conference next month.
Commanding a social media following of almost 50 million, the 22-year-old has become one of the world’s most successful influencers, having first gained fame through mix of slapstick and daredevil videos shared on video-sharing app Vine.
Graduating from the now-defunct Vine, Logan's YouTube channel became the fastest channel to hit the ten million subscriber mark in history. This heavy dose of online popularity led Paul into the realm of TV and film, with previous acting projects including a guest appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and a role in the comedy film Weird Loners. This led to a dystopian sci-fi YouTube flick, The Thinning and later an adult comedy Airplane Mode.
In 2015 the Ohio native was ranked as the 10th most influential figure Vine, with his six-second videos earning him hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising revenue By October that year, his Facebook videos alone had more than 300 million views.
A 12 million subscriber base on YouTube and an Instagram following of 15 million has allowed Logan to delve into the waters of fashion, creating his own clothing label Maverick, which has taken the US by storm.
So where can you see him?
Logan will take to the stage at the upcoming ITP Live Influencer Conference on November 12, to discuss with BBC broadcaster Andrew Neil his tips on becoming a successful influencer, and how exactly influencers are reshaping the media industry in the Middle East and beyond.
Ahmad Bashour, General Manager of ITP Live, said: “Logan Paul is nothing short of a megastar in the world of influencing. His appearance in Dubai is a great chance for us to tap into the latest trends and insights in the industry from one its most transformative figures. We look forward to welcoming him to the city for the first time.”
