Our primary, annual fundraising event, celebrating the IFEA Foundation’s 25th Anniversary in 2018, is an all-important source of support that allows us to confidently provide convention scholarships to many young professionals who will become the next generation of industry leadership and to those deserving organizations working to build a solid and successful foundation for their festivals, events and communities. The funds raised also support our capabilities to provide and host top-quality industry presenters, speakers and programming, helping us to raise the bar for everyone in our global industry.

Surrounded by the retro-ambiance of the Town & Country’s Grand Plaza, including sparkling swimming pools, fountains and the Tiki Pavilion, complete with the surf and sun music of the 1960’s, this year’s IFEA Foundation Party promises to be a fun, laid-back and memorable evening with good friends, for a great cause. With an ‘Opening Reception’ from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. (remember to bring your drink tickets) followed by a sit-down, interactive dinner with special friends from around the world, this special evening will be interspersed with bidding on a selected menu of once-in-a-lifetime experience packages, helping us to reach our annual goal of exceeding the previous year’s success. Best of all, the IFEA Foundation Party is included at no extra charge as part of your convention registration! So grab your flip-flops and best 'Tikiritaville' attire and plan to be there for a special and memorable evening!
