Imagine a workshop with some of the biggest names in the Tesla community. No, we're not talking about Elon Musk, JB Straubel, or Franz von Holzhausen. The only way you'll catch a glimpse of those guys is probably on the factory floor in Fremont. That said, there are a handful of high-profile Tesla owners who've gained massive followings online via their own popular youtube channels. It turns out a group of these Tesla celebs are joining forces for the first-ever TeslaCon.

Led by data scientist, Ben Sullins, who runs the Teslanomics youtube channel (also the lucky winner of Tesla’s new Roadster), TeslaCon’s upcoming online conference will feature presentations including a keynote by Robert Llewellyn of Fully Charged, along with Tesla tips and tricks from Trevor Page of Model 3 Owners Club, Zac & Jesse of Now You Know, and other influential Tesla community members (see below).

Sullins explains, "At TeslaCon you’ll be inspired by the leaders of Tesla and EV communities. Learn everything you need to get the most out of your EV. Participate in live Q&A [sessions] with your favorite youtube and online personalities." Meanwhile, the folks over at Teslarati are saying this event, "could be the Comic-Con of the Tesla community," comparing it to one of the world's largest comic and science fiction-based cultural gatherings based in San Diego.

Pre-conference workshops begin at 9:00am PST on December 15th followed by the main conference workshops beginning at 8:00am PST on December 16th.
