Institute Summit

Details on the 2018 Institute of Fair Management Summit will be released soon.

General Summit Info: Each year the Institute of Fair Management holds The Summit--an intensive learning event just for Institute enrollees – no guests or spouses. Only current or graduate enrollees may attend. At The Summit, 5 or 6 required Institute courses will be offered and enrollees will have time to network with each other – a key element of the program. The location and dates of The Summit change each year. An enrollee must attend at least two Summits in order to graduate.



Interested in attending? Here's what past attendees have said...


"Being in the Fair industry for only 7 years, this gave me the opportunity to network with fairs from Florida to Alaska! The structure of the Summit was perfect. It was extremely well organized with speakers, timeliness of the sessions and I could go on!"

Susan Szymanski, Erie County Fair, Hamburg, New York

"I couldn't have imagined the networking opportunities!!! The thought that went into the seating arrangements was awesome. My networking even carried over to the airport, as 10 of us sat at the same gate waiting for our connection. I though it far exceeded my expectations. Thank you."

Jackie Cammarano, Erie County Fair, Hamburg, New York

"The Summit was more than I had anticipated. A great deal of information was shared within those few days. And, there was a lot fun and laughter while networking and getting to know one another."

Carol Schumann, Goodhue County Fair
