WELCOME

THE PRINCIPAL ASSOCIATION REPRESENTING CREATIVE EVENTS PROFESSIONALS, GLOBALLY.

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) was founded in 1987 to foster enlightened performance through education while promoting ethical conduct. ILEA works to join professionals to focus on the "event as a whole" rather than its individual parts. ILEA has grown to include chapters throughout the world.

The solid peer network ILEA provides helps special events professionals produce outstanding results for clients while establishing positive working relationships with other event colleagues.

Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP)

The Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) designation was established in 1993 to recognize event professionals who have successfully demonstrated the knowledge, skills and ability essential to perform all components of a special event. ILEA endorses and manages the voluntary CSEP program for those who meet established standards.
