Hello, #VirtualLand! John Chen returns as GSMCON virtual emcee

Mar 26, 2024

The 2024 Government Social Media Conference – the premier event for government professionals – is happening April 16-18, 2024. Virtual tickets are available for a limited time! All attendees can expect 2.5 days filled with actionable sessions, genuine networking opportunities and much more. Get your virtual ticket today before registration closes after April 11, 2024.

Please join us in welcoming back John Chen as the virtual emcee for GSMCON2024!

Special for our virtual participants, John Chen and the Engaging Virtual Meetings team are back by popular request. Their goal? To guide virtual participants through the 2024 Government Social Media Conference! Through engaging conversation, exciting networking, and special virtual-only giveaways, you’ll feel like you’re right at the event.

You may remember John & team from past Government Social Media Conferences guiding #VirtualLand participants through their online schedules (and having fun doing it!). John has brought exciting moments to virtual #GSMCON®, including Harlem Shake dance breaks, Star Wars references and so much more. Just take a look from these past events!


For GSMCON2024, when in-person attendees are in the General Session Ballroom, you’ll login to your virtual room and meet with John Chen -- get ready to get excited! John will meet you virtually from wherever you are and open up the session with housekeeping items, what to expect, and of course, some entertainment.

Before every breakout session, you’ll also meet with the Engaging Virtual Meetings virtual hosts! Being greeted by an actual person is a special way to start your session. Instead of just logging in and hoping you’re in the right place, your virtual host will welcome you in, hand you off to the on-site speaker, and be there behind the scenes to make sure your virtual experience is seamless.

What makes GSMCON’s virtual experience so different?

We’re not going to waste your time with boring Zoom meetings! Besides investing in having live virtual hosts for every session, we take a complete look at your entire virtual experience and are always asking ourselves, ‘How can we make this even better for our virtual participants?’

There’s a reason why all of our attendees clear their calendars to be fully present in this interactive, fun virtual experience. You’ll feel like you’re right there in Palm Springs, but still in the comfort of wherever you learn best. Virtual attendees get perks like:

  • Watch livestreamed keynote, general and breakout sessions in real-time from the comfort of wherever you are, meaning you’ll be right there with speakers and other attendees as sessions are happening! Post-event, you’ll also get on-demand access to most session recordings for 3 months.
  • Join online networking & virtual reception! You're invited to our virtual welcome reception on April 15 from 5-6pm PT & online networking sessions on our new conference mobile app.
  • Speakers answer your questions during live Q&A! On-site speakers will answer some of the questions from our hundreds of online participants.
  • Participate in lively chatbox conversations: The chatbox is on fire during sessions!
