WHAT IS ILEA
ILEA is a non-profit organization centered around providing education and networking opportunities for those in the events industry. The International Live Events Association, ILEA, is a global community of thousands of creative event professionals whose skills, expertise and experience power some of the most recognized and respected live events around the world.
WHO WE ARE
ILEA members are event professionals, photographers, florists, creative directors, trade show managers, event planners; they are environmental designers, entertainment producers, and experience creators. They produce festivals, corporate meetings, social gatherings and marketing campaigns. They are decision makers and shot callers. They are part of multinational corporations and they are small businesses. But most of all, they have a passion for designing and executing live event experiences.
WHERE WE PARTY
Our members are situated around the world, on six continents though you'll most likely end up at your local chapter events. Here in Indiana, most of our events/meetings are held in Indianapolis, although we do our best to reach the entire state. If you are interested in hosting a meeting or event, please let us know!
When joining ILEA you are always welcome to attend events all over the world. Are you in Las Vegas for a weekend? Heading to Boston? Hitting the slopes in Colorado? Maybe their local chapter is having a meeting that week; this gives you a chance to connect with event professionals outside of your area, talk about event trends, and make stronger connections in the event industry. You can find other chapters here.
