The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Napa-Sonoma Chapter is a community of live event professionals rich in spirit, creativity and connections. Our members are located primarily in the Napa and Sonoma Counties and throughout Northern California.
We value creativity as part of our culture and our spirit. We are a community that looks forward to the future with confidence and anticipation, and looks back at our achievements with pride. We care about each other and are interested in seeing our members businesses flourish!
ILEA works to join event and meeting professionals to focus on the "event as a whole" rather than its individual parts. The solid peer network ILEA provides helps special events professionals produce outstanding results for clients while establishing positive working relationships with other event colleagues.
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.
ILEA, formally the International Special Events Society, was founded in 1987 to foster enlightened performance through education while promoting ethical conduct. As our association continues to expand and engage, reaching new audiences and markets around the globe, so the ILEA brand continues to evolve. Our members are spread among all the chapters across the world representing any business servicing the event industry. For over 30 years ILEA has been a valued, respected and trusted partner in the event industry.
