Why Attend

What is IGES & What Does it Offer?

Founded in 1999, IGES is one of the most popular resort, souvenir, and specialty gift trade shows in America. It’s not just a trade show; it’s a vacation experience and business trip all in one. IGES takes place every November in the beautiful Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

This fall, approximately 4,000 buyers in the travel and tourism industries come from the U.S., the Caribbean, and Canada to shop more than 1,000 booths from 500+ vendors in order to find high-quality, original products to sell in their gift stores.
