Below is the Membership registration form, Trade Fair forms and important convention material for the event to be held January 5-7, 2018 at the Marriott East Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. Again, this year the Indiana State Festivals Association will be attending the convention. With this you will be able to reach additional opportunities to promote your business.
Membership Form: Please be sure to complete the on-line membership payment or the enclosed material and submit by December 1, 2017 to avoid late fees. Information listed is critical since it will be included in the membership brochure.
Convention Reservation Form: Be sure that you have the designated person pick up the meal tickets that you order.
The meals for Saturday lunch will be a buffet of meatloaf and fried chicken. Once again, the association will be providing a hot lunch that costs more than the $20 that you are being charged.
Hotel Reservation: The INAF will assist with the hotel room assignments. We would encourage you to complete the on-line form and submit it by Dec. 1 to ensure that you receive the room rates that we have locked in with the hotel since after the 1st of December the rates could increase.
Trade Fair: Trade Fair information for 2017 is available on-line. Please be sure that your group is represented by completing the form and submitting it today to lock in your booth. Times have been changed to hopefully allow more interaction.
Showcase: Be sure to check out the website after November 15th for those participating. We will be having a carnival on Friday night so hopefully your business will participate. Stay tuned for more details!!!
Schedule of Activities: The 2017 convention schedule is being finalized. You can be assured that outstanding education sessions will be offered, approximately 70 trade fair booths for your review during Friday and Saturday, great entertainment during the Saturday night showcase and plenty of time to network with your fellow comrades that support the fairs and festivals throughout Indiana. The 2018 Indiana State Fair Queen and Indiana State Festivals Association Scholarship Queen contest will be held during the weekend of the convention.
Silent Auction and Door Prizes: Be sure to bring those items again – it is an event that people enjoy. Silent auction proceeds of $1,000 will go to the Indiana FFA Foundation and the balance will go to the association to assist with operational fees.
Associates Meeting: Associate members will meet on Friday January 5th at 4:00pm to discuss issues of importance which impact the INAF. The group will make a recommendation for a Support Services Director to sit on the INAF board.
