WELCOME TO THE IFEA WORLD FESTIVAL & EVENT CITY AWARD PROGRAM
The IFEA would like you and your city to consider applying for the 2013 IFEA World Festival & Event City Award, presented by VISA. If you are reading this, you already understand the important role that festivals and events play in your community by:
· Adding to the quality of life for local residents;
· Driving tourism;
· Showcasing a positive community brand and image to the media, business community, and visitors;
· Creating economic impact that translates into jobs, tax revenues and enhanced infrastructure improvements;
· Providing enhanced exposure opportunities for the arts, not-for-profit causes and other community programs and venues;
· Promoting volunteerism and bonding the many elements of the community together;
· Encouraging community investment, participation, creativity and vision; and
· Building irreplaceable ‘community capital’ for the future.
We look forward to working with you, your city and community partners to recognize the quality efforts and support that you have successfully developed over the years and should be rightfully proud of. Let us help you fly your flag high!
Thank you for your continued support of, and partnership with, the festivals and events industry. Best of Luck with your entry!
