The theme Fairs RISE was chosen for 2023. We will incorporate into IAFE activities throughout the year. Each letter stands for something important to our fairs. R – Reunite, I – Inspire, S – Support, and E – Educate.
A survey will be sent out later to collect information about the other letters but we are focusing all year on Inspire. Please share what inspires you, if you would like you can include a photo or video. We will feature the answers in Fairs & Expos magazine to keep us all motivated.
International Association of Fairs & Expositions (IAFE) Convention & Trade Show
The IAFE Convention & Trade Show is the largest gathering of the fair industry anywhere in the world. People from fairs of all sizes - small county fairs to the largest events in the world - come together to learn, to share ideas, network, and visit a trade show unlike any other.
To lead in representing and facilitating the evolving interests and needs of agricultural fair, exhibition, and show associations' stakeholders.
Ensure members of the IAFE remain relevant to their mission and to their communities, be sustainable and viable, by motivating a more engaged membership, inspiring a more energized leadership, and creating innovative programming, services, and products to meet the ever-evolving needs of our members.
