The Georgia Festivals and Events Association (GFEA) and Atlanta-Based company, Top US Events, Announce Their Partnership in Forming the GFEA Video Network

The Georgia Festivals and Events Association (GFEA) and Atlanta-based company, Top US Events, a subsidiary of R2R Media, Inc. announce their partnership in forming, the GFEA Video Network. Within this exciting concept are plans that will significantly impact special event marketing and promotion across the state of Georgia and the entire Southeast.

Atlanta, GA, March 08, 2009 --( The GFEA Video Network offers events and festivals access to a cost efficient and highly effective way to showcase their events via video on the internet. Top US Events provides each member of the network with a patent pending media player to be included on their website. This unique video player allows for not only video and footage about the event year round but – monetizing opportunities as well. Best of all, this state of the art social networking concept offers each event the ability to reach new visitors and awareness throughout its membership.

“It's amazing how simple the concept is for event organizers to wrap their hands around.” said Chip Emerson, President of R2R Media. “If you think of it like a spider web, every member brings more members to the other participants. In essence, if there were 50 members and each GFEA member’s site had 100 unique visitors, each site now would have the capacity for 5,000 unique visitors to view relevant video. This type of marketing offers a substantial increase in viewership for each of the participants.”

The Pilot Program will consist of top southeast events such as Taste of Atlanta, Fiesta Atlanta, the Sandy Springs Festival, Marietta’s Art in the Park and the North Georgia State Fair in Marietta, GA, to name a few. The program will provide not only logo and banner placement along with an explanation of the festival, but access to a video player on all websites that includes a detailed video of the event, along with videos of other GFEA events.

“It’s such a great way to work together to provide greater foot traffic to all events.” said Carolyn Morris, Executive Director of GFEA. “Allowing the visitor to see what our events feature and hear the excitement they create not only helps awareness it builds a greater desire to be a part of it.”

Video streaming is becoming increasingly popular as companies look for more ways to disseminate information online. Top US Event’s GFEA video player will be a great resource by allowing visitors to experience festivals and events prior to actually attending. The GFEA Video Network offers two yearly programs.
