IAFE Trade Show in Las Vegas

The Txtwire team attended the 2014 International Association of Fairs & Exhibitions (IAFE) Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Held from December 8th through the 10th, the 4th annual IAFE show is the largest gathering of fair officials, buyers, performers, marketeers, representatives and event planners in the industry. If it involves fairs, the IAFE has got you covered. The previous year’s show featured 391 booths and over 4,000 attendees!


The theme of this year’s show was “Seeding Change,” and among the attendees were organizations like Colorado-based outback wildlife showcase Aussie Kingdom and online ticket distributor Etix. There were also a number of show-stopping performances from groups like America’s Got Talent contestants the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team, escape artist Lady Houdini, and the stilt performers from Stilt Circus.

We were on-hand to give convention-goers a taste of the Txtwire platform and we gave away $600 cash in a contest that required attendees to text IAFE to the shortcode 91011.
