Government Executive Media Group, Inc. Launches GovExec Virtuoso to Support the Government Sector in Event Programming, Content Creation, and Marketing

New Service Provides a Full Suite of Digital Engagement Solutions

Washington, D.C. (May 15, 2020) — Government Executive Media Group, Inc. (GEMG), the leader in public sector media, announced the launch of GovExec Virtuoso, a new suite of virtual event solutions for the public sector. As live events have been temporarily halted due to COVID-19, the government audience has moved online and companies are looking for new ways to engage their prospects. The launch of GovExec Virtuoso is a response to this new landscape, offering GEMG partners opportunities to create holistic virtual experiences for government audiences that stand out from their competition. 

Building on its 22 years of event experience and 12 years of digital event experience, GEMG is bringing its expertise in digital programming, savvy in generating deep engagement with government audiences, and prowess in activating the largest database in the public sector to the government contracting community through this new suite of offerings. GovExec Virtuoso enables government contractors to build and differentiate their brand, sustain their market message, and support the creation and delivery of immersive programming to audiences across any platform. 

“The events model is forever changed. Decision makers will use digital platforms to convene, learn, and engage for the foreseeable future,” said Tim Hartman, CEO of GEMG. “At GEMG, we believe that this requires us to create breakthrough market moments to replace that interaction: digital event programming, content extensions, highly-visible digital promotion, and audience cultivation and nurturing. GovExec Virtuoso meets our partners’ marketing, content creation, and production goals through every phase of their digital event experience. And, we are confident that our digital expertise and event programming prowess can combine to support our partners in a really powerful way as they embark on a new path to achieving their business and marketing objectives.” 

GEMG is launching GovExec Virtuoso in response to an increase in requests to curate and produce digital events for its clients.  One sector that has seen a continued reliance  on event programming is the government sector, with government employees using programming for professional development and idea sharing. Just last year, Market Connections reported 56% of federal employees attended an event in 2019, up 12% since 2017. 

Following a detailed consultation, GEMG will guide its partners in the appropriate plan for its business needs and then provide ongoing support during the full development and planning process.
