1. Snakes. Pirates. Dinosaurs. Oh my!

It goes without saying that #IAFE2015 has one of the best trade show floors around. From the jaw-dropping entertainment and performers to delicious fair food samples, there is never a shortage of excitement. Conference attendees were also able to stop by our booths to meet members of the Etix, Rockhouse Partners and Encore Incentives to discuss the latest in ticketing, marketing and patron loyalty.

2. Have all the fun you want. They will make more!

IAFE’s theme for this year’s convention was all about creating more fun and better experiences with a small budget. True to form, IAFE delivered by providing fantastic educational sessions and workshops. On top of that, they kept up their end of the bargain by showing us an incredible time.

3. Confessions of a Fair Marketer.

Our flow session, Confessions of a Fair Marketer, was presented by Rockhouse’s own Suzanna Best, who shared success stories from some of our biggest fair clients, including the marketing challenges and opportunities facing fairs today. Not only that, but she offered useful tips and tricks that fairs can implement TODAY. The best part? Most are free!


4. Ain’t no party like an Etix Scarf Party!

Every year our friends and clients who attend IAFE get excited for the annual Etix Scarf Party… and 2015 did not disappoint! We were thrilled to host old friends and new acquaintances at the Paris Hotel Circle Bar on Tuesday, December 1. We had so much fun that we’re already starting to plan next year’s scarf design.

5. We know our Fairs.

There’s a good reason that Etix is the top U.S. ticketing provider for fairs… we know them, understand them and love them. Etix’s Dennis Scanlon and Paul Laughter hosted round table sessions in the “Ed Shed” on Tuesday, December 1 to give clients and prospects a look into Etix’s robust solutions that have allowed fairs to sell more tickets, grow awareness and own their data.
