The Ed Shed
The Place to Be at the 2022 IAFE Convention!

The completely renovated Ed Shed, located in Hall C of the Convention Center, is an area of convention you certainly won’t want to miss. Visit the Ed Shed multiple times throughout convention, as the attractions may change frequently. Expect to find:
 

Committee Booths:
Visit with various members of several IAFE Committees, view their displays and participate in their events. A sneak peak into these committee booths:

  • The Competitive Exhibits will be hosting daily pop-up contests. Participate in these quick, fun and interactive activities at their booth.

  • The Technology Committee will provide you information about tech help at their booth and committee members may be available for suggestions during Ed Shed hours.

  • The Sponsorship committee members are planning daily idea-sharing displays to help you enhance your own sponsorship program.

  • The YPI Steering Committee may have a hands-on activity up their sleeve to help prove that #YPICares!

  • The Safety and Security committee members are there to give convention-goers an insight into many current events that may affect our industry. Complete a survey to assist them in their future planning.

  • The Marketing Committee is inviting the Best Marketing Campaign contest winners to display their marketing collateral on tables to showcase the best fair-industry marketing and campaigns.

  • MANY other committees will be on-site with activities, displays and more!
