Today’s the day we’ve been waiting for!!!! Kickoff to the 50th Anniversary IISF Gibtown Trade Show Extravaganza. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this week.
The International Independent Showmen's Foundation (IISF) Trade Show and Extravaganza held in Gibsonton, Florida is celebrating it's 50th year. Gibtown Showmens...club Trade Show attendees can expect more exhibitors, more rides, and relevant seminars packed into a shorter trade show.
Teresa Rimes, the Executive Secretary for the IISF is enthusiastic about this year's trade show February 6th-9th 2018. According to Rimes, "the building is sold out and the outside area is busting at the seams." This year, the trade show will feature 27 new exhibitors compared to last year's 13 or 14. "We are all very happy about this year," says Rimes.
The trade show will be one day shorter this year, a change that trade show attendees have been pushing for, according to Rimes. The trade show will be Tuesday-Friday and with Saturday being cut. "The 4 day structure is happening on a trial basis this year," says Rimes. When asked why people pushed for the decrease in dates Rimes guesses "People in the industry have a lot to get done before the season really gears up so I think they're just ready to get home and get prepared."
