Welcome to ILEA, Virginia Chapter!

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Hampton Roads Chapter is pleased to announce an expansion to the Virginia Chapter in an effort to further our reach to bring special event professionals together for education and networking opportunities.

Our current focuses are on Richmond and Charlottesville, but we invite event professionals across the commonwealth to join us.   ILEA Virginia is currently meeting monthly virtually due to the recent concerns and guidelines of the COVID-19 pandemic.  However we believe In-person events will return by the summer and we hope to utilize our new partners throughout Virginia.   We ask that our guest speakers share their expertise on a wide range of educational topics vital to the industry as a whole with a focus on ILEA's core curriculum to aid in the Certified Special Event Professional exam.  

Meetings provide the perfect opportunity to network and serve as a showcase for our members. For most programs, non-members are welcome to attend our events. If you are interested in attending a meeting and wish to receive information on upcoming events, click here to sign up for our mailing list.
