International Gift Exposition in the Smokies (IGES)
Founded in 1999, IGES is one of the most popular resort, souvenir, and specialty gift trade shows in America. IGES isn’t just a trade show, it’s a vacation experience and business trip all-in-one. IGES takes place every November in the beautiful Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, Tennessee.
This fall, approximately 4,000 buyers in the travel and tourism industries come from the U.S., the Caribbean, and Canada to shop more than 1,000 booths featuring over 400 vendors in order to find high-quality, original products to sell in their gift stores. IGES vendors offer the most comprehensive selection of merchandise available to souvenir, resort and gift buyers.
IGES is a trade-only event and is not open to the public.
