Telefonica has announced that its startup accelerator Wayra has reached a deal with YouTuber event organiser Tubecon to set up a dedicated studio lab for the creation of online video content. The Creator Lab space will be located in Telefonica’s HQ on Madrid’s Gran Vía and will eventually become part of Wayra’s incubator facilities. It will contain a production studio and editing area with professional equipment plus a zone in which the YouTuber community can meet and exchange ideas. The space will also host a pilot project in which Tubecon and Telefonica’s Movistar+ brand will work with new content creators to explore ways of communicating online.

Tubecon has organised a number of mass-audience YouTuber events in different European cities, the most recent in Helsinki attracting some 17,500 visitors.
