Who: You!
What: SMPTE/SBE Holiday Party
When: November 28, 2018 6:00 PM
Sponsor: Multiple Sponors. See text!

Our annual holiday bash was another great success!  It was organized by SMPTE Washington DC Section, along with assistance from SBE Chapter 37, the AES DC Section, and the many generous sponsors listed below.  We enjoyed an evening of great food and drink but what made the event truly special was the comradery and engaging conversation with our industry colleagues.

This year's gala was held at Corduroy, 1122 9th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20001 (just across 9th Street from the DC Convention Center), on the first day of the Governemt Video Expo.  Dinner was provided by our genereous event sponsors, which we wish to thank:
