CVX Live (Creator Viewer Experience Live) is an annual online video convention designed to serve as a meeting place for online media creators (primarily YouTubers) and their fans. The convention is held in Utah.

CVX Live was originally created by a team of YouTubers that runs the Bored Shorts TV YouTube channel. It includes brothers John, David, Brett and Randy Roberts and their friend Richard Sharrah. The channel is known for its flagship project Kid History. According to the creators, CVX Live is a kind of a Comic-Con for YouTubers and their fans.

The inaugural CVX Live was held in August 2015 in the city of Orem, Utah. It featured 35 YouTube celebrities and attracted around 6,000 attendees which is roughly four times as many as the attendance of the first VidCon. The event featured Bored Shorts TV (naturally), Studio C, Devin Super Tramp, Stuart Edge, Peter Hollens, Jessica Frech, CuteGirlsHairstyles, WorkingWithLemons, and other YouTubers.

The programming of CVX Live is similar to that of other YouTube conventions such as VidCon (Southern California), Playlist Live (Florida & Washington, D.C.) and Summer in the City (London). It includes main stage performances, group and one-on-one meet & greets, photo ops and autograph sessions with vloggers, video premieres, Q & A panels, workshops featuring industry leaders, contests, booths, and other fun activities.

One of the convention’s main highlights is The Next Big YouTuber contest. Participants submit their videos to get a chance to win prizes such as an opportunity to perform on the main stage during the conventions, TV appearances, collaborations with famous YouTubers, promotion, audio kits, camera kits, and more. Past winners include singer Madilyn Paige and violinist Rob Landes.

CVX Live offers two days of entertaining and informative events. It gives a chance to meet top video content creators, shake their hands, get a selfie or have a photo signed, find new friends, see spectacular performances, attend workshops, participate in interactive entertainment, buy exclusive merchandise, and more. The convention used to be held at the UCCU Center in Orem but in 2017 it moved to the Salt Palace convention center in Salt Lake City.
