IAFE Announces 2022 Trade Show & Convention Location
Springfield, Mo. – March 2, 2021 – The International Association of Fairs & Expositions (IAFE) Convention & Trade Show will begin moving to different cities beginning with the 2022 event. After extensive research and nearly two dozen proposals reviewed, the IAFE Board of Directors voted to host the event in a different city each year 2022 through 2025. The selected sites offered the best approach to meet the needs of the members: accessibility, affordability, unique opportunities, and great after-hours activity.

The 2022 IAFE Convention & Trade Show will be held Nov. 27-30 in Indianapolis, Ind. The meetings and trade show will take place in the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, with seven official hotels conveniently located near the center and connected via heated skywalks. Downtown Indy is vibrant and full of wonderful eating establishments, most less than just a few blocks of the hotels and convention center (and many also connected via skywalks). Although details on programming are still in the early planning stages, events and activities may likely take place at the Lucas Oil Stadium, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and the Indiana State Fairgrounds (just 3.5 miles from downtown). More information about the 2022 Convention will be released later this year.

The City of Indianapolis has received numerous accolades including being voted the #1 Convention City in the United States by USA Today, a Best Place to Go in 2021 by Conde Nast Traveler, and the Best Place to Travel to in 2021 by Travel + Leisure.

Host cities for 2023 through 2025 will be announced as contracts are finalized, and generally 16 to 18 months in advance.

The 2021 IAFE Annual Convention & Trade Show will be held Nov. 28-Dec. 1 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
