Annual Convention Overview

The IFEA Annual Convention is the top networking event in our field, full of valuable information that can be taken home and put to immediate use in your own community. Here, professionals gather together to share ideas, experiences and opportunities that shape the successes of our common industry and individual events. In the hallways, sessions, and events of the convention you will meet many individuals with a multitude of experiences, challenges, points of view, approaches, leadership styles, and networking connections. Their commonality is their desire and willingness to share all of the above with each other. For those who use it, it is also their greatest tool and resource.

Nowhere else will you find so many ideas, so much creativity, and such easy access to the most successful events and event professionals in the world. During the convention you will experience nearly 100 educational sessions by the top experts and success stories in our business. We pride ourselves on providing up to 90% new topics and speakers each year, ensuring that attendees at all levels - first timers and repeat attendees, new to the industry or seasoned professional - will find all the answers and creative new ideas that they are looking for.
