Supporting others is what we do day-to-day, but we can’t do that without raising funds. One place we do that is ILEA Live. And this year it’s in Calgary!  This is  the first time in 10 years this conference has been in Canada, and it’s a fitting time to celebrate not only 20 years of SEARCH, but also 30 years of ILEA and 150 years of Canada.  All of this makes it the perfect time to come together for the people who bring us together – those in need of SEARCH. It’s time to #Converge2017.

Dine, drink, and dance at one of Calgary’s best-kept secret locations -- the historic FoundryWednesday, August 9 starting at 7:00pm.

Buses departing from the Hyatt will bring you to the start of the action-packed night.

A Shot of Adrenaline (to the heart…)

In Association with ILEA Live 2016

  • Friday, August 12th, 2016
  • 8:30pm – 11:30pm
  • Brazos Hall – Austin, TX

Promotional Information From The Event:

Come and support the SEARCH Foundation at this incredible event; a tribute to the films of Quentin Tarantino!  Immerse yourself in the world of the iconic films of one of the greatest writer/directors in cinematic history.  Tarantino’s legendarily quotable dialogue is framed by his homage to great music and his obsession with food – two things event professionals love.  Grab yourself a “Royale With Cheese” and show us your best dance moves just like Mia and Vincent did in the “Jack Rabbit Slim’s Twist Contest” from Pulp Fiction.

This will be a night filled with great food, lively music and exciting entertainment that you will not want to miss.  Share a few laughs with old friends and network with new ones as we raise funds to help the SEARCH Foundation to continue its mission to assist event, meeting and hospitality professionals in crisis.
