GV Expo crowds defy snowstorm

Publish date:

An early December snowstorm closed down the nation's capital, but it couldn't stop the 5th annual Government Video Technology Expo from attracting record crowds. The two-day show closed on Dec. 5 as the most successful in the event's five-year history.

Sponsored by United Entertainment Media, GV Expo 2002 drew a record-breaking 7,180 attendees. Up 11 percent from last year, GV Expo has become the largest multimedia and training event on the East Coast. It's also the largest trade show and educational conference for government video professionals held annually in the Washington, DC, area.

"GV Expo has topped itself once again, " said Mark J. Pescatore, executive conference chair and editor of Government Video magazine. "Attendees I spoke with on the show floor really enjoyed checking out the latest gear and talking with exhibitors. And many exhibitors have already signed up for GV Expo 2003, which shows how much they value our government attendees." Among the show highlights:

- GV Expo 2002 attracted 7,180 registered attendees, including key purchasing decision makers from federal, state, and local government agencies. Other attendees included non-profit communication professionals, video and teleproduction employees, and video personnel from hospitals, military and educational institutions, and law enforcement.

- The show floor size increased to accommodate a record-breaking 272 exhibitors that demonstrated thousands of products for professionals involved in video production, multimedia/presentation, distance learning, security and surveillance, DVD, training, law enforcement, audio, streaming video, and videoconferencing.

- Conference and special sessions attendance increased by 15 percent.
