With a focus on health & safety, education, business development and driving excellence and shared best practice, ESSA and its members sit at the center of the events community both in the U.K. and overseas. On a day-to-day basis, they support their members with the provision of business essentials, such as access to unlimited legal and HR advice, H&S support, insurance advice and a number of money-saving group discounts.

IFES, the International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services, is the international association of national associations and companies that are active in the fields of design, conception, production and services for exhibitions, trade fairs and events. IFES offers a platform for international cooperation achieved through networking and knowledge exchange. Founded in 1984, on the initiative of national associations in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Great Britain and the U.S., IFES celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2019. The association is registered in Brussels under Belgian law. The “global collaboration network” briefly describes IFES. But to understand what IFES is, you have to go deeper into the details. IFES represents more than 280 companies from all over the world. Each of these companies has signed the IFES Code of Conduct—a kind of constitution that regulates the cooperation within the entire network. So when an IFES partner serves the customer of another member, both the customer and the member know that they are being professionally advised and supplied by a company that meets the highest quality standards. This is a member benefit with priceless added value. In order to increase the number of partnerships within the IFES family, the association offers several opportunities for “getting to know each other.” Sharing knowledge is the foundation of their association.
