First office* Trade Show and Conference in the U.S. Lands in Washington, D.C.


Leading international trade show producer Diversified Business Communications (DBC) announced today it is expanding its global trade show and convention, office*, into the U.S. on May 30-31, 2012 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

office*, which has built a significant following in the United Kingdom, is focused on educating and training the D.C. metropolitan area workforce – office managers, facilities managers, executive assistants, administrative professionals, meeting and event planners, HR and training professionals – and providing them with access to innovative products, services and training that will enable them to do their jobs more effectively.

“Offices, whether they are large or small, aren't able to function on their own. It's the professionals attending office* who are at the heart of keeping D.C. area offices running smoothly every day,” said Judy Geller, event director for office*. “The skills these professionals possess are diverse—from hiring new staff and purchasing products and services to negotiating leases and contracts, and providing technical IT support. Our goal with the inaugural U.S. office* conference is to provide these individuals with valuable training, allow them to meet and network with peers from other industries, learn about the latest office products and trends so they can be even more effective for their organizations.”
