For the third year in a row, Digital Production Buzz is very pleased to be the official podcast of Government Video Expo!

Government Video Expo is the largest industry trade show on the East Coast. Including conferences and a trade show, this is the key place to be to find out what’s happening in production and post-production. Because it’s in Washington, there’s an emphasis on the government market – but the show encompasses far more than that.

Past experience covering this show has highlighted speakers and exhibitors from non-governmental agencies, municipal and state governments, the corporate market, and all the usual suspects. This year promises to be no different – a great mix of established companies and start-ups that you haven’t met yet.

You can’t find people or interviews like this anywhere else! It’s another fascinating show. It’s all the information you need now to know what’s coming next!
