Welcome to ILEA, Greater Washington, DC Chapter!

We are the Greater Washington, DC Chapter of the International Live Events Association (ILEA)—the principal international association representing event professionals.

The live events industry is in a constant state of evolution. The needs of clients and organizations are changing, technology is progressing rapidly, and new trends are emerging. You’re faced with planning more events with less time, growing your business, finding new clients and suppliers, all while achieving new levels of creativity and inspiration. We get it.

ILEA has the resources, educational opportunities, and, most importantly, the broad global network that will help develop your team, grow your business, and build the relationships that will propel your careers and events to the next level of success.
