IFEA Leadership 100 Retreat
January 21-23, 2022

Oglebay National Training Center
Wheeling, West Virginia, U.S.A.

The global Covid-19 pandemic brought us face-to-face with challenges that we had never imagined or prepared for…as a world and as an industry. It shone a spotlight on our weaknesses, as well as our strengths. It reminded us of the critical importance of our industry to our communities, countries and world, when that void cannot be filled, and the remarkable resilience of those across our field when we work together. It changed our world, our events, and our organizations, forever. It opened our eyes to future challenges that we may face and new opportunities that lay before us; new foundations waiting to be laid.

It made it crystal clear that the future is ours to shape. How we choose to use the ‘Master’s Degree’ experience that we have all been through to redefine ourselves and our common industry is up to us. What will our events and organizations and communities look like? How will we prepare for and protect ourselves from future pandemic-level challenges? What new programs, approaches, relationships, and creativity will grow out of the passing pandemic storm?

In this new world, the power of and need for the combined, creative IFEA global professional network has never been more important, and we hope to continue using it for the common good. If you are a top-level festival and event industry-related leader, we invite you to join us for the first-ever ‘IFEA Leadership 100 Retreat.’ CEO’s, CFO’s, CCO’s, Executive Directors, Presidents, senior management innovators, and other top-level visionaries from throughout the global festivals and events industry…100 leaders…coming together after an unimaginable pandemic, in the intimate, creativity-conducive environment provided by West Virginia’s Oglebay National Training Center and Resort, to imagine and shape the future.

To promote and maximize the networking and exchange opportunities of this unique gathering, the ‘IFEA Leadership 100 Retreat’ (a participative event) will be limited to the first 100 leaders who register. Will you be among them?

2021 IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat Announcement

Through surveys to access the current realities for our members and industry; communications with other allied partners; the reality/impact of many postponed 2021 events moving to the later quarters of the year; and the many, many other factors outlined here, we have made the difficult decision not to hold our annual IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat presented by Haas & Wilkerson Insurance and our 2021 Awards Programs, with an eye on protecting the overall health and sustainability of our own organization, as well as all those in our global industry.
