2020 Details Coming Soon


A huge THANK YOU to all of the exceptional vendors who chose to exhibit and support the industry at the 2019 IFEA Expo last month!

The date and location for the 2020 IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat will be finalized at the end of December and shared with everyone who has subscribed to the IFEA mailing list. If you haven't yet done so, you can sign up for that here. As a general guideline, you can plan on the event being at the same time of year (mid-September to late September/early October) and about the same pricing.

You can get a better feel for who attends the event through the link below, and also see all of this year's exhibitors in our Virtual Trade Show.
We've kept the link to our 2019 materials below as an example of what you can expect and will add 2020 information just as soon as it becomes available.

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
