GV Expo, GovComm to Co-locate for 2012 Events
March 7, 2012
Media LLC, producers of Government Video Expo (“GV Expo”), and InfoComm
International, producers of GovComm, have announced that each of their
Washington DC-based events will co-locate in 2012, and take place at the Walter
E. Washington Convention Center, Nov. 27-29.
its 15th year, GV Expo is the leading eastern U.S. broadcast and video
production technology expo and conference targeting government, broadcast,
cable, corporate, and independent production professionals. After its
impressive premiere last year, GovComm returns to Washington DC with its AV
information communication systems trade show and conference focusing on
professionals who serve and work for government agencies and the military.
year’s events, held approximately one-month apart in the same convention
center, show management for both events heard requests from attendees and
exhibitors to co-locate. In response to this demand — and because of the shows’
complementary topics and audience — NewBay and InfoComm made the decision to
hold the events side-by-side. The co-located shows will define the convergence of AV, IT, information
communications, broadcast, production, security, and other technologies in one
venue — offering a significant value proposition to both shows’
exhibitors and attendees.
synergistic nature of the topics, the common interests of the audience, and the
strong relationship between NewBay and InfoComm, the co-location of these
events makes perfect sense,” says Carmel King, Executive Vice President of
NewBay Media’s Video and Broadcast Group. “This can only make these two vital
industry events even stronger.”
International is dedicated to helping its members reach the government
marketplace, and we believe that the best way to accomplish this is to be part
of a larger one-stop-shop for government technology,” says Randal A. Lemke,
Ph.D., Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. “The decision to
co-locate GovComm with GV Expo was made easier because of InfoComm’s strong
historic connection with NewBay Media.”

will feature the Rental & Staging Roadshow, co-produced by NewBay and
InfoComm, as well as content from other NewBay Media Broadcast and Video Group
brands such as Broadcasting

Due to the change
in the event date for GovComm 2012, InfoComm will be extending the GovComm Call for Presenters to April 16, 2012.
