We've made some changes to our traditional Exhibit Hall this year to allow for adjusted budgets during this unique time. After gathering feedback and listening to our members - both planners and suppliers - we have worked to create an event that we believe will help bring our industry back together to build stronger and safer events. Details on our changes are outlined below. We hope you will join us! And if you still want to network with the FFEA Community but aren't able to attend in person, check out our Virtual Conference here.

This year's conference will be shortened down to a day and a half. You can view the agenda below with notes for each event specifically for our supplier members.

There will not be pipe and drape booths however supplier members will have the option to setup a tabletop display in the main ballroom where the general sessions and reception will be held.

The registration fee has been cut in half. See registration fees below.

There will be additional opportunities for our sponsors and supplier members to discuss their product / service through the following:
  • Showcase your product or service through Tabletop Display at Opening Reception
  • Position yourself as a Product Knowledge Expert during a Learning Roundtable or 3x3 Presentation
  • Introduce your company from the stage at the Meet the Suppliers Luncheon
  • Network with Planners during Hospitality After Hours

"FFEA has been an invaluable source for building key connections and providing education which has played a vital role to help me launch my business years ago and to continue to grow and thrive today.” - Lanie Shapiro, Owner, Touch Poll South Florida

“I attend conventions throughout the U.S. The FFEA convention is one of the best. The Trade Show is a great way to meet new folks and see old friends, but the true value for me is the opportunity to join the educational sessions and social activities and get to know the attendees.” - Joe Repass, K&K Insurance

FFEA continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to COVID-19 and understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting everyone. Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the coronavirus, FFEA will not charge a cancellation fee if you decide to not attend in-person based on concerns around your health or travel, including after the original June 19 cancellation deadline.

In the event that you need to cancel or that FFEA has to cancel the event, you will be fully refunded unless you prefer to leave a credit on file towards your annual membership or to be used for the 2021 Convention & Tradeshow.

“Attending the FFEA the conference put our business in front of hundreds of potential customers and allowed us to demonstrate our product and answer questions in person. We formed several beneficial relationships through the conference and saw an increase in sales afterward.” - Marisa Madia, Help Get Sponsors

“Zambelli Fireworks attends a number of annual conferences and tradeshows. Hands down the FFEA provides one of the best networking, educational, and trade show experiences. We haven't missed one in 20 years!” - Zambelli Fireworks
