Washington Convention Center, November 27-29, 2018.  The Time2 Show will incorporate the 23rd annual Government Video Expo as well as the co-location of two all new conferences and other professional offerings.

The Time2 Show will convene professionals focused on Transforming Information & Media for Entertainment and Enterprise.  The Time2 Show will feature 4 co-located, concurrent events, including:

  • DC Post | Production Conference – An intensive production/postproduction training and educational event, developed with partners Future Media Concepts.

At the center of The Time2 Show will be the Government Video Expo.  This annual event attracts decision makers and influencers who purchase millions of dollars in video and AV equipment annually.  Once again, the Government Video Expo will incorporate the National Drone Show.

“This year’s Government Video Expo promises to be the best yet for our attendees, sponsors and exhibitors,” said Paul McLane, Managing Director, Content, NewBay.  “From security to communications, video technology is transforming government and enterprise, creating incredible potential for the professionals, manufacturers and service providers serving this expanding market.”

Co-located with the Government Video Expo will be two all-new conferences, AV Technology Live and Creative Planet Con.  These three adjacent and symbiotic events, as well as planned summits and symposiums, will be promoted under The Time2 Show brand to create a truly unique opportunity for Video, AV and IT professionals, both attendees and exhibitors, to network and learn.  The Time2 Show will benefit from many positive attributes, including:

+ Thousands of professional Video, AV and IT professionals live within 150 miles of Washington DC.

+ The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is a state-of-the-art facility, easily accessible by car, train, airport and, most notably, in walking distance for thousands of Video, AV and IT professionals.

+ Three show floor theaters with high value audience content all day

·       Critical Technology, Best Practices & Tutorials

·       High Interest Audience Content including all new “Need to Know” segments focused on Cybersecurity, Blockchain, 5G, AI

·       Drone Cage theater will include live hands-on training and demonstrations

“Not only are we focusing on the latest technology from the Video and AV/IT enterprise marketplaces, but we are also looking at future-facing opportunities and best practices in order to give attendees a multi-dimensional experience they can’t find anywhere else,” said Joe Territo, Chief Content Officer, NewBay. “Exhibitors and our sponsors will significantly benefit from an enhanced variety of prospects.”

Based on the addition of new content, NewBay expects to double the size of the overall attendee traffic that Government Video Expo traditionally has drawn. This will enhance opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors. Also, there will be increased networking opportunities for attendees to interact with a diverse group of professionals.
