IDA Fundraising Event

Each year, IDA hosts a special, optional fundraising event for attendees - typically in line with the event location or theme. Last year in Indianapolis, attendees had the chance to show off their driving skills during our indoor go-kart competition. 

The IDA team is hard at work to bring the same level of fun an excitement to the 2020 fundraising event. Information coming soon!

Celebrate the opening of the largest show floor in the industry by attending the all Conference Party & Silent Auction! Make toasts, share stories and show off your best dance moves with live music, food and drink. And don't forget to bid on a silent auction item to support the IDA Scholarship Foundation.
