Judy Woodruff to Headline 2018 GV Expo - GovernmentVideo.com
This year’s event has double the learning opportunities, planners say

Government Video Expo planners have announced “an expanded schedule of live sessions in two theaters on the expo floor.”  

“Not only are we focusing on the latest technology from the video and AV/IT marketplaces, but we are also looking at future-facing opportunities and best practices in order to give attendees a multidimensional experience they can’t find anywhere else,” Future B2B U.S. Chief Content Officer Joe Territo said in a press release.

According to the announcement, attendees will learn about trends, build skills and broaden their professional network.

Programmed by the content directors of Government Video, TV Technology, Digital Video and the Creative Planet Network, sessions on the show floor are intended for audiences active in video production, broadcast and professional AV, with topics including:

  • Emerging production/post-production video technologies;
  • Business strategies for media professionals;
  • Immersive journalism and new storytelling tools;
  • Production advances for higher education;
  • Live event and streaming production;
  • Virtual reality and its potential in education and enterprise;
  • 2019 professional and consumer technology trends;
  • Drone/UAV photography.  

Headlining this year will be a keynote conversation with PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff. She will discuss the media climate of 2018 and her high-profile role in it.

“We’ll explore how video technology is transforming government, education and business, creating incredible potential for the professionals, manufacturers and service providers serving this ever-expanding market,” said Future B2B U.S. Managing Director of Content Paul McLane.   

The 23rd GV Expo will be collocated with DC Post|Production Conference and the Government Learning Technology Symposium and is scheduled for Nov. 27–29 at Washington’s Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Registration for the event opened in mid-May.

The event is produced by Future US, an information and event producer for the professional communications, entertainment and education technology markets.
