Despite a deluge of freezing rain and snow in Washington DC this week, GovDelivery’s annual Federal Digital Communications conference marched on. With more than 450 people tuning in via webcast and in-person, 6 speakers, 250+ tweets with an estimated impression of 1.2M people, and a lot of networking accompanied by a few bad weather horror stories, the event this week added up to a great success. Nearly 97% of attendees said they would recommend next year’s event to a friend based on this year’s format and insight!
If you were unable to join us, we missed you. But over the next few weeks you can expect to pick up on some of the conversations generated from the event. (As a side note, we are going to test our luck with the weather in Washington D.C. once again on April 23 as we make another “Digital Communication Tour” stop at the Grand Hyatt. Stay tuned for details on registration for that event!)
There was a lot of knowledge sharing on trends in the digital government world at the annual event—enough to fill a small novel (or a piece of art, as shown by the visual notes here). Instead of giving you another play-by-play of the event, here’s a timeline of some of the top tweets event attendees tweeted using the #govd13 hashtag.
