One of the most popular sessions each year at Government Video Expo (Dec. 1-2 in Washington) is the "Meet the Government Producers" panel, with the opportunity to hear from and network with the officials who create video for government entities.
The panel, hosted by TIVA-DC (Television, Internet and Video Association of D.C.), is returning to GV Expo for its 13th appearance.
Video professionals from the private sector should bring lots of copies of their resumes and demo reels to this event, one of the region's top networking opportunities.
The panel is Weds., Dec.1, from 3-4:30 p.m., at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Video producers from the federal government and from AARP (the largest government lobby organization in the world) will be encouraged to talk about their current projects, describe opportunities to contract with their production facilities, and interact directly with the audience. Some of these organizations contract with individuals, independent producers, writers, editors, and talent on an as-needed basis. Others contract for complete production packages from conception to completion. There are ample opportunities for qualified video professionals to find work.
