The Bubble Party 2017

IFEC's annual reception during the NRA Show in Chicago got a make-over. We christened it the Bubble Party because it is all about -- you guessed it -- bubbles; bubbles of all colors, shapes and sizes, from the tiny ones in sparkling wine -- the official party drink  -- to bigger ones  pumped from a machine, to the old-fashioned DIY kind, and more.  More than 175 guests joined us at Hotel Palomar Chicago for an uplifting time of it. Thanks to everyone who made it an exceptionally high-spirited occasion.  And special thanks to our wonderful sponsors for providing delightful wines, delectable food and generous support. We love our sponsors!Bubbly

60th Anniversary Party
 
 A Sixty-Year Tradition
We celebrated IFEC's 60th anniversary in 2016 with a blowout party in Chicago. IFEC was started by a group of editors and PR people meeting for drinks at The Drake Hotel during the 1956 NRA Show. They decided that frequent meetings would benefit them and industry readers, and so it's natural that IFECers have gathered during the show ever since.


Cheers for our Bubble Party 2017 sponsors!
