IAFE - The International Association of Fairs and Expositions

Upcoming IAFE Annual Convention

The 2015 IAFE Annual Convention is quickly approaching. All the details about the Convention, including how to register, can be found on the new IAFE Convention website. Excitement is building and the conversation is ongoing! Remember to use #IAFE2015 when discussing the Convention on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

Resources for Fairs Canceling Poultry Shows

Many fairs are faced with canceling poultry shows this summer due to the avian influenza (H5N2) outbreak impacting commercial poultry operations and backyard flocks across the U.S. The IAFE will provide information and resources for members for ideas on messaging, education, and use of space on this website and through the members’ Igniter forum. Go to the special Avian Influenza Resource section (you will need to use your member e-mail and password) for the most up-to-date information and resources, including recordings from the IAFE Avian Influenza CyberSeminar sessions held on June 4. Check back frequently for updates as well as watch your e-mail for special announcements (from “news,” the Network Newsletter, or e-announcements).
