Our primary, annual fundraising event 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.
This year’s IFEA Foundation ‘Silent Auction’ began online on Wednesday, September 11th at 8:00 AM and will continue over the course of our first two convention days. Item viewing and bidding will be available online 24/7 as of September 11th and onsite, in the foyers near the IFEA Registration Desk, from 12:00 - 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 24th; 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25th and 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 26th.
