Given the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty that has caused throughout our industry, with many festivals and events still cancelling or postponing for 2021; many global travel restrictions still in place; multiple (and often conflicting) city, state/province and country regulations on mass gatherings; financial and human resources being stretched; and the current (and hopefully successful) rollout of COVID-19 vaccines that will hopefully allow our industry to make a full and normal return, sooner than later, our plans for a 2021 IFEA Convention & Expo are currently in a holding pattern.

While we look forward to our next opportunity to gather in-person, with a focus on helping everyone prepare for a full and successful return of events to our communities and world, we cannot risk the health and safety of our members, attendees, and staff, nor the financial sustainability of our organization, until we see, further, how things progress. As the situation evolves, we will keep you updated. For more details about that move click here.

Registration for the 2021 IFEA Expo is still open and available through the links below, along with details on available packages, pricing and other booth specifics. You'll also find links to who attends and the exhibitors already registered and being promoted in our year-round, online Virtual Trade Show. We'd love to include your business among them!


The IFEA Expo is the top trade show in our industry for bringing together the creative products, services and solutions of our exhibitors, with the leadership and decision makers who call the shots for festivals and events around the world.

What Exhibitors are Saying

IFEA has proven to us, in a very short period of time, to be the best marketing tool, with our new business, to reach the festival and event market -- hands down!
- Todd Hoffman, Your-Type

"One of the best run trade shows! From start to finish, it was a pleasure to work with wonderful people."
Carol Flemming, Carol Flemming Costume Design

"Personal relationships are the most important key to good business. You can buy mailing lists; you can't buy friendships. And the most valuable personal relationships are best built face-to-face. For 64 years the IFEA has been bringing our industry together face-to-face."

- Pete Van de Putte, CFEE, dfest

"IFEA was such a wonderful experience and led to many great connections."

- Chelsey Panchot, Up with People
