Thailand's silver and gold glitter on YouTube

In Bangkok today we’re celebrating some of Thailand’s favorite YouTube stars and recognizing their success with Silver and Gold Play Buttons. The Thai creator community is one of the world’s most vibrant, boasting over 300 Silver Button channels (those with over 100,000 subscribers), and over 20 Gold Button channels (those with over one million subscribers).

Meet some of those who received their Buttons at the opening of our first ever YouTube Pop-Up Space in Asia today, right here in Bangkok:
Clockwise from top left: TubtimTube (247K subscribers), ink & fern from 108Life (376K subscribers), NdMikki Holic (106K subscribers), Zbingz (1.3M subscribers) 

From entertainer idol TubTimTube to educator Ormschool, from foodie Pholfoodmafia to beauty guru NdMikki Holic, YouTube has provided them with a platform to express themselves and reach audiences here in Thailand and around the world. They’ve all helped YouTube’s popularity skyrocket since it officially launched here just two years ago, moving Thailand into the top 10 countries globally in terms of watchtime, and growing at an astounding pace of 70% every year. 

With such an active creator community here, we’ve decided to open a YouTube Pop-up Space in Bangkok. These Pop-up facilities bring a taste of the nine permanent YouTube Spaces around the world, giving YouTube creators a place to learn, connect, and create more high quality videos. 
The YouTube Pop-up Space Bangkok opens in Bangkok today and includes a green room. Gaming creator Zbingz shot her latest video in the YouTube Pop-up Space Bangkok.  

These studios will be free for Thai creators to use from May 12 to May 14, at G Village Co-Creation Hub, Bangkok. In addition to access to state-of-the-art production facilities, creators will get to participate in happy hours, collaboration event, and workshops about how to improve their channels. 
If you didn’t get a chance to book production space this time, don’t worry: Pop-up Space is coming back to Bangkok in the week of August 22. Follow the latest updates about YouTube Pop-up Space Bangkok at #YouTubeSpaceBKK to stay informed of the latest news about activities and events.
