The 22nd New Bay Government Video Expo on Nov. 28-30 will feature audio/visual experts discussing strategies, trends and future projections, while hundreds of technology providers will display video, broadcast and audiovisual tech (including virtual reality demos).
“It’s an exciting and challenging time to be a video professional,” said Carmel King, executive vice president of New Bay. “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 professionals continue their education.”
Held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the event includes a discussion on virtual and mixed reality with Steve Koenig, senior director of market research at the Consumer Technology Association, the U.S. trade association representing more than 2,200 consumer technology companies. Filmmaker Mathew John, who has produced many National Park Service videos will tell the story behind last year’s NPS Centennial video.
It costs $995 to attend the three-day event, and $495 to attend for one day. The Expo also features:
- Presentations by experts from the Department of Defense, Library of Congress, Defense Information School, NATO, Consumer Technology Association, National Park Service, Air Force, Department of Justice and Department of the Treasury.
- Production and postproduction training
- Educational sessions
- The National Drone Show, an event for UAV/UAS videographers that features demos, classes, screenings, and a drone flying cage
- After-hours networking events with user groups and associations
- Radio World’s Visual Radio Symposium, co-located with the expo, with leading broadcast executives and technologists on the role of video in radio
“We’ve designed this event to give our attendees as many educational opportunities as possible: education through experience, through instruction and through presentations from experts,” King said. “Our hope is that the demonstrations and presentations on the exhibit floor, conference sessions, intensive workshops, panels, and keynotes will give our attendees a better sense of how technology is developing and how they can respond to and benefit from these developments.”
