About This Website

Welcome to the IFEA Website!

Made Possible by IFEA Association Endorsed Partner, Saffire
On behalf of the IFEA and our combined Boards and Staff, I would like to welcome you to our IFEA World website and to say a very special ‘thank-you’ to all those on the Saffire team who have played so many important roles in helping us to build the foundations from which we can continue serving and connecting our global industry for many years to come. As you have the opportunity to explore the site you will find many levels of functionality, connectivity and information, all presented at the high level of professionalism and friendliness that we hope the IFEA represents around the world.

The IFEA is fortunate to count Saffire as one of only four sponsors at our ‘Association Endorsed Partner’ level. To raise their own bar, they have uniquely chosen to focus directly on the events industry, choosing to learn about our needs, our challenges and our opportunities. I would encourage each of you to talk with them firsthand about what they might do for your own events, organizations and online presence.
I thank you for your own active support of the IFEA and our common industry. Now, simply click here to go to our home page and start exploring. Above all, have fun and come back often!
Best regards,
Steven Wood Schmader, CFEE
