Social media superstar Logan Paul is to make his first ever appearance in Dubai, as a speaker at the ITP Live Conference taking place on November 12.

The 22-year-old has become one of the world’s most successful influencers, having first gained fame through videos shared on Vine.

Since carving a name for himself with funny viral videos, he’s gone on to make appearances in several TV shows, including Law & Order. Most recently, he released a music video for “Outta My Hair”, which features Bella Thorne obsessing over his famous blonde locks.

You may also recognise him from films like The Thinning and Airplane Mode.
