Interested in attending? Here's what past attendees have said...

"This was my first experience at a Manager's Conference. All I can say is 'Wow.' What an experience and education. The IAFE always does a tremendous job in selecting programs for learning. The best part is, it is so beneficial in every aspect of your life. I volunteer about 30 hours a week year round at our fairgrounds because we are a year-round facility. I am also a business owner that sells over $20,000,000 in product yearly. I can tell you that everything that was presented at the Manager's Conference is very useful in that organization also. It was truly a WOW experience."

Jo Beal, Sioux Empire Fair

"As a first time attendee, I found the Management Conference to be a very good experience. It's an opportunity to meet with your peers, share ideas, and learn from them. The speakers, whorkshops, and networking make it well worth the investment. I would encourage anyone that has the chance to attend, to do so."

Jamie Blum, Dubuque County Fair

"This year's conference challenged each participant to 'get out of their comfort zone.' The programming was outstanding. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to see production agriculture in action as part of the meeting. This was truly IAFE 'The Network' in action."

Herb Higgs, Panhandle-South Plains Fair
