Many of IFAI’s divisions will host their annual meeting and networking events in Indianapolis as part of Expo. These are called “Open Meetings” and take place in the IFAI Hub on the show floor.  IFAI members are strongly encouraged to attend their division open meetings so plan now to attend and learn about what is going on in your division(s).

IFAI division open meetings provide a forum for members to learn about the division activities undertaken throughout the year and to network with other members. We invite you to influence your division activities, share your vision for the division, exchange ideas with other members and strategize to expand and enhance your industry.

All division open meetings and networking events are free-of-charge and open to IFAI members. Not a member? Come and learn about the divisions of IFAI. Network with other industry professionals and learn from your peers about IFAI membership.
