Annual Convention

The IAFE Convention & Trade Show is the largest gathering of the fair industry anywhere in the world.  People from fairs of all sizes – from small county fairs to the largest events in the world – come together to learn, share ideas, network, and visit a trade show unlike any other.

2024 IAFE Convention & Tradeshow – Building on Strong Foundations

The theme Building on Strong Foundations was chosen for 2024. We will incorporate this theme into IAFE activities throughout the year. What will you build upon?

We’re heading to Phoenix, Arizona, from December 1-4 for the 2024 Convention!

Save the Date – 2025 IAFE Convention

Mark your calendars now! We’re heading to the Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colorado, November 29-December 3, 2025.

I attend the IAFE Convention and Trade Show because it is a game changer: it energizes, ignites, grows, and motivates me personally and the hopes for our fair and industry as a whole to be more, do more and believe that we are more!

Rhonda Ward, General Manager, Collier County Fair

Put simply, the IAFE Annual Convention and Trade Show is our number one driver of new business each and every year. It’s the perfect place to connect with new prospects and reconnect with current clients.
