Festivals, events, cities, tourism agencies, sponsors, venues, vendors and suppliers, all find ourselves operating in a new world and marketplace where the status quo is not a viable option; where the ‘silent majority’ is never heard; and where past expectations are literally that. From programming and experience management to volunteer recruiting, marketing, site selection and payment options; from sponsorship activation and staff retention to event impact standards, safety audits and food & beverage, merchandise and ticket sales; and everything in-between and around the edges; today’s leadership and ROI demands require us to refocus. Are you making ‘old choices’ or ‘BOLD Choices’?

To stand-out from the pack; to stay fresh; to create lasting impressions; to stand up for what’s right; to spur imaginations; to motivate and inspire; to find elusive solutions to familiar challenges; to set new bars for our teams, our peers and our industry; we must prepare and position ourselves to make BOLD Choices...Choices that will ensure our successes well into the future.

We invite you and all those you depend upon to join your global peers for the 64th Annual IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat in historic Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, USA, September 25th - 27th, 2019, where BOLD Choices begin, grow and prosper.

*Note: Certified Festival & Event Executive Certification education classes will be scheduled in the days leading up to the convention – September 22, 23, 24, 2019. Separate Registration is Required. More Details available soon.

*Note: The 64th Annual IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat is 3 full days. Be sure to make your travel arrangements accordingly.
