Company Background Information Federal Buyers Guide, Inc Trusted Media Marking nearly 40 years of publishing in the business to government marketplace, Federal Buyers Guide Inc. (FBG) is the leading private-sector resource for connecting suppliers with military, government contractors, federal, state and local government buyers. Strategic partnerships with government tradeshows across all industries, FBG hosted networking events with business, military, federal and local government procurement offices, and long time relationships with government purchasers and suppliers have solidified the effectiveness of our media to connect buyers and sellers. Influential Audience We keep it simple. The public sector sourcing process, and ultimate selection of a vendor, is going to be influenced by someone in the purchasing office. That is the community we cater to. Our media is designed so this influential set of decision makers can find the suppliers for their buying needs. We make sure our media tools are compliant as far as content and the format in which it is delivered and presented. Businesses that are serious about connecting with government buyers participate in our guides to get in front of the right decision makers. Why Government Is it because they buy everything? Or, is it because government customers always pay their bills? Are prospective customers more likely to buy from a business that has a government entity as a customer? Our advertisers know and agree. A satisfied government customer is a loyal customer that will buy from you again and again.

 Government buyer-focused exposure is our core strength. We offer printed source guides, digital editions, online search sites, banners and commissioned specialty publications as a way to get in front of a government purchasing decision maker.  Online Sourcing: The FBG family of web sites are consistently in the top search results when looking for relevant products and services for industrial and government buyers.  FBG maintains one of the largest databases of government buyer and supplier information in the United States.  FBG is a pioneer marketer, implementing innovative direct marketing solutions that have become standard in the business-to-government space.

Government Pavilion from WelcomeGOVTM Be There Without Being There! Q Get your sales message, company brand and material distributed at our Government Pavilion.

WelcomeGov™

Travel Services

is a new division of Federal Buyers Guide, Inc. devoted to providing travel, event, workshop, training information and associated content to government personnel.

Do you help the government arrange workshops or large trade shows? Is your hotel government-friendly but not fully utilized during nearby government events? Do you have a value-add service you can offer to government employees on official or leisure travel? Use us if you are interested in making sure government travelers know your services are available.

Large Industry Events Our network of media partnerships are among the most successful government events. We can help get the word out on your event and attract more traffic to your show from government-buying decision-makers. If you need help with exhibit sales marketing, we can help with that too!

Pavilions at Industry Trade Shows Already have a full travel schedule of trade shows this year? Have you decreased your valuable exposure at events due to budget cuts? Don’t competitors let yo yyour ur comp petitors gget their message out to buyers while you have no presence. We establish government pavilions on the industry trade show floor for suppliers who are unable to attend. This is a cross-section of suppliers that have a place where their marketing materials, sales brochures, samples and business cards can be distributed to government attendees.

Why does it work? It works because we are able to centralize government-buyer traffic to our pavilion. Typically, we work with non-government events that h are stil ill w still well attended by public sector buyers and sourcing agents. As a resource for their purchasing we have been able to build on our relationship of over 30 years.

Contact Us Today Let us create a customized marketing plan that fits your goals for reaching out to the government. We have connected government buyers and suppliers with our media and are constantly working to provide new ways to accomplish our client’s government marketing goals.
