Need confidential advice?

There’s a new program at IFAI Expo this year: free private counseling sessions with independent industry experts in product development, intellectual property, knitting, smart fabrics, weaving, environmental law, nonwovens, supply chain issues and more. These one-on-one meetings are available to all show participants, both exhibitors and attendees, and are included in any type of registration. The experts are independent consultants who have volunteered their time and expertise.

The confidential 30-minute meetings will be scheduled in advance, during online registration, and take place in private rooms on the show floor during show floor hours. Applications and scheduling for meetings will be available online as soon as show registration opens in May and continue until one week before the show in September, which will be held Sept. 26-29 in New Orleans.

If you’d like to apply for an appointment spot at the show:

  1. Register for IFAI Expo (registration opens in May).
  2. Select a mentor (or mentors) from the list.
  3. Apply for a 30-minute confidential meeting (or meetings).

If your application is accepted, you’ll receive an emailed confirmation of your meeting time and location. The Mentor Program is another extension of the main purpose of IFAI Expo: to give participants the information they need to solve problems and create new business opportunities.
