A leading feature of the IFEA's Annual Convention, the Expo is the top trade show in our industry for bringing together the creative products, services and solutions of our suppliers/exhibitors, with the leadership and decision makers who call the shots for festivals and events around the world. IFEA's Expo allows event industry suppliers the greatest opportunity ever for face-to-face exposure and interaction with festival and event executives who are seriously looking for new ideas, products and services that will enhance their events and success.
Uniquely at the IFEA, all members are considered equal and critical to the success of our industry and all exhibitors have the opportunity to attend the nearly 100 educational seminar sessions offered at the convention, along with invaluable opportunities to interact with clients (and potential clients) while learning the latest trends in the festivals & events industry. Additional venues to meet and mingle with industry professionals and peers exist at the many social activities planned for convention attendees. Discover what the decision-makers in the festival industry are learning and discussing, while making valuable contacts and friendships
Nearly twenty years ago IFEA members voted to include and recognize suppliers and vendors to our industry as full members, with no differences in voting rights or benefits. This important step formally recognized what everyone already knew…that the suppliers and vendors who support our industry are a critical part of our successes. Today, the IFEA Expo trade show is one of the most important components of our convention, historically bringing the best suppliers together with the best events, resulting in new ideas that benefit everyone. Unopposed by any other sessions, so that you can spend your time effectively exploring and interacting with the unlimited creativity and possibilities that await inside, the IFEA Expo is your key to future success and inspiration.
The largest trade show in our industry geared specifically to festival and event decision-makers, features the most creative ideas, products and services for all things imaginable, including: merchandise, insurance, giant parade inflatables, parade floats, children's performers, food and beverage products, fencing, sponsor gifts, decorations, security, fireworks, lasers, university programs, face-painting, sand sculptures, portable restrooms, bleachers, entertainment and attractions, ticket control, confetti cannons, generators, tents, awards, radios, printing needs, sponsorship software and services; credit card services, photography, publications, costumed mascots, staging, lights and sound, and much, much, more; usually at special convention pricing.
