FBC was founded in 1976 as the Small Business Product Review Council. During the first few years we held 10-20 table-top shows per year in the Washington D.C. area. Since then, as we established relationships with more and more federal government facilities, the number of events has continued to grow. In the early ninties we began to expand beyond the local D.C. area to military bases and government facilities in Virginia, Georgia, and Ohio, and in 1996 we opened our west-coast office. In the last three years FBC has held an average of 150 events annually in 40 states, and in 2002 we held our first overseas event at the U.S. Army Base in Hamburg Germany.
In 2000 FBC was listed on the GSA schedule and in the past two years we have greatly expanded our role as a manager of government-sponsored specialty conferences. These include the annual Federal Information Assurance Conference, the annual Defense Technical Information Center Conference, the Army's Information Assurance Workshop Series, the annual Army Worldwide Public Affairs Conference, and the annual OSDBU Procurement Conference.
In the last two to three years, FBC has grown from a simple event management company to a comprehensive resource for marketing to the Federal Government. We've recently added several new services to help I.T. providers focus their marketing efforts and precisely identify the people and locations within the federal government who are most likely to buy from them. These include agency contract spending reports, email notification of new contract solicitations, previous attendee lists, and our FedPage.com linked listing service. We also now provide educational materials and live seminars to help you develop and improve your overall federal marketing strategy and make the most of your trade show experience. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
