For the second year, MontanaFair is being recognized as one of the top fairs of its size in the world with contest winner announcements from IAFE.
The International Association of Fairs and Exhibitions is the largest trade organization of the fair industry. Each year, the IAFE conducts contests for its fair members, which recognize and reward excellence. All contests are judged by IAFE member representatives and professionals from respective fields.
In 2016, 1468 contest entries were judged by more than 50 industry experts. The judges have selected winners for the Agricultural, Competitive Exhibits, Hall of Fame Communications, Innovative Sponsorship Awards and the State and Provincial Communications contests.
MontanaFair took home the most Hall of Fame Communications Awards of any fair in Division 2 (fairs with attendance of 100,000-250,000 guests) with seven. This brings the fair’s two year award total to 18.
MontanaFair won awards for best web advertisement; best promotional event, and best first time sponsorship program for the Cabela’s Carnival Wristbands program.
In 2015, MontanaFair won six first place awards and eleven total communications awards.
