The Cincinnati ILEA Chapter (formerly known as the International Special Events Society or ISES) was established in 1997 to help foster business relationships and education in the Special Events industry of Greater Cincinnati. Our chapter year begins July 1 and runs through June 30 each year. We host a mix of educational and networking events approximately 10 times a year, typically on the third Tuesday of each month unless otherwise specified.
For more than 25 years ILEA has been a valued and trusted partner in the events industry. An industry that generates over $200 billion for the global economy and supports over four million jobs. ILEA members are regarded as the very best in what they do, creating a powerful and influential community of event professionals around the world, working together to find new ways to communicate through the power of live events.
Our vision expresses our place in the world. It captures our reason for being and defines our direction as an association.
