Currently IELA has 155 members and 33 affiliates in 54 countries.
Our association seeks to professionalise all segments within exhibition and event logistics, set corresponding standards and ensure compliance with them. This is a hallmark of the high quality level of our members.
IELA faces since its beginning the challenge and responsibility of being recognised as the elite echelon of the world's best exhibition and event logistics providers. Therefore we established the IELA SURVEY to improve the service level, quality and professionalism of all IELA members in March 1987. The IELA STANDARDS OF PERFORMANCE SURVEY is the unique tool that benchmarks our members´ performance. The winner of the respective category – Domestic Agent or Export Agent – receives the Best Agent Award at the annual IELA Congress, the highest quality recognition within the Industry.
With 241 delegates IELA's 31st Congress 2016 has been the largest ever held in the association's history.
From June 25th to June 28th 2016 Dublin became the heart of the Exhibition Freight Forwarding Industry welcoming 129 member companies from 48 countries to the DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin - Burlington Road.
One of the event highlights was the annual Gala Dinner and Awards Night at the iconic landmark Royal Hospital Kilmainham on Monday June 27th 2016.
