Be Aware of Hotel Reservation Scams

Unfortunately, there have been reports of telemarketers and scammers posing as IAFE staff that are calling members to book accommodations to Las Vegas during the Annual Convention. Please note: the IAFE WILL NOT request a third-party to contact you to book your room for our Annual Convention. We secure room blocks for our attendees straight through the hotel and can find those links here. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be with the IAFE or Paris/Bally’s hotels and who tries to book your accommodations, please contact the IAFE office at 800-516-0313. Do not provide them with any of your personal or payment information.

Take the Challenge! IAFE Education Foundation – Jim Tucker Fund

The Jim Tucker Fund was established in 2015 in honor of long-time IAFE CEO and Executive Director Jim Tucker. Jim’s vision for the Fair industry includes continued professional education for IAFE members. The Jim Tucker Fund will assist in bringing world class educators to the convention and meetings.
