"This year's show is by far the most exciting trade show in Squire Boone Village history. Your cooperation in working with vendors that allows them to sponsor Buyer Happy Hour, Buyer Group Networking Dinners, and various other perks offered buyers such as morning coffee, free WiFi, free samples in buyer lounges, CAZAM bags, and prize giveaways no doubt connects buyers to the show and keeps them coming back each year. Your outstanding support of buying groups such as ZAG, NARB and ZAA have provided a meeting place to gather and learn from each other. Combined with all of your other buyer incentives makes coming to IGES a "do not miss" on any souvenir buyer's calendar. No wonder we had such a good show."
Rick Conway, Squire Boone Village
“The 2012 IGES was a great success for our small company! The show provided me with an opportunity to interact with some of our awesome customers, gain new customers and establish a connection with buyers for future business. The event staff are friendly, always smiling and willing to help. To sum it all up, we will be back in 2013!”
Justin Pressley, Sylvan Dell Publishing
This is the best wholesale show in the country. The professionalism of the show management never ceases to amaze both vendors and buyers. Everyone has a "can do" attitude and it is reflected in both the sales and the atmosphere of the show.” --- Nuwati Herbals (Rod Jackson and Kimberly Stauder)
"From all of us at Dillon, THANKS M&M for taking such great care of us over the last 12 years! See you in November!"

"We exhibit at many shows throughout the year, but we have to say the IGES show is still our # 1 show every year.”
John Fitzsimmons, Rhode Island Novelty
“Being the “new kid on the block” to the show last November, we were both excited and yet apprehensive about our new home. I am delighted to say that our experience exceeded our expectations! Not only was the show management team extremely flexible and easy to work with but the flow of customers to our booth was very rewarding. We are looking forward to the upcoming show in November.”
Peter Seresky, Nanco-Nancy Sales
"We always look forward to the IGES® sales experience where we meet and greet many of our thousands of specialty customers. The Sevierville show is always a great way to cap off the year with a boost in sales! The show staff has always accommodated our every need and have become good friends as well as business partners. Thank you for continuing this great event."
Charles and Mary Potter, owners, Legendary Games
IGES/SSS has a lot to be excited about and we hope you will be too!! The show is looking forward to a large expansion beginning in 2013. Our exhibitors will soon call two locations "home":our current and popular Sevierville Events Center plus our brand new facility, the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge!
The Photo below depicts an artists rendition of the new LeConte Center being built in Pigeon Forge. IGES® has been awarded the contract for this beautiful new center and will be adding it to our current Sevierville location to expand the size of the show beginning November of 2013! MORE companies, MORE product lines and MORE reasons to shop in the Smokies! Located on the River Walk at Jake Thomas Road (Traffic light #5 on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge)
