GBEF Activities and Program

GBEF Document COverThe GBEF is an annual program of integrated activities developed to leverage and advance Member business and career objectives. Each year the program includes:

  • Three substantive program meetings that feature:
    • Timely policy and market discussions
    • Respected authors, political, government customer and business speakers
    • Commissioned research
  • Substantive interaction with government and relevant commercial leaders.
  • Legislative briefings from Congress scheduled against the annual government budget cycle.
  • Select activities, most often held in support of or collaboration with the Consumer Electronics Association and International CES (annual Digital Patriots Dinner, Election Night, others) round out the annual program.

GBEF members contribute to the content and execution of CES Government and are the VIP hosts of this prestigious annual forum. The GBEF program is developed annually by UTG, and it relies on the experience, knowledge and network of the company's partners.

Anchored in the Federal government, the GBEF is unique in its reach beyond Washington's Beltway to other government jurisdictions, and to markets directly connected to government: most notably, health care and energy.
