Join Me at the Government Video Expo and Conference

The Government Video Expo and Conference takes place Nov. 28-30 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. You are cordially invited to attend.
Publish date:

I hope you can join us in Washington, D.C., for three days of education, training, conversation, engaging keynotes and an exhibit floor with the latest technologies. All of this is part of the Government Video Expo and Conference, held Nov. 28-30 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

It's an exciting and challenging time to be a video professional. As the capabilities and possibilities of video technology advance almost daily—new applications, new formats, new distribution platforms, new means of consumption—it's critical that you continue your education.

We've designed this event to give you as many educational opportunities as possible: education through experience, through instruction and through presentations from experts.

My hope is that the demonstrations and presentations on the exhibit floor, conference sessions, intensive workshops, panels and keynotes will give you a better sense of how technology is developing and how you can respond to and benefit from these developments. You can find a full schedule (and register to attend) at

Highlights this year include:

I look forward to seeing you there!
