    How to Increase Your Bottom Line Revenue

    It’s always been a topic of major importance for festival and event organizers, but during COVID it’s been the No. 1 issue, as events are restarting with little revenue in reserve.


    We’ll tackle the subject more than ever at the

    2022 annual WFEA Conference


    November 1 - 3, 2021

    The Washington Festivals and Events Association has established a certification program that will offer the ultimate educational and achievement experience for WFEA members. The Association will kick it off at its annual conference in Bellevue April 3-5.

    Registrants who attend the all-day pre-convention sponsorship workshop on Wednesday, April 3, can earn CLEP credit. Click Here for Sponsorship Workshop and Conference Registration Information: 2019 Conference

    The CLEP program will offer all-day, in-depth educational sessions and hands-on experience at festivals and events that will provide event professionals knowledge at the highest level of their field. Upon completion of requirements, graduates will earn the title of Certified Live Event Planner (CLEP).

    “It will also offer recognition to people who have gone the extra step to learn about the festivals and events industry,” said WFEA Executive Director Bruce Skinner. “With it will come increased professional status and potentially compensation.”

    The WFEA Certification program is overseen by the WFEA Professional Education Board of Managers, a body appointed and made up of top industry professionals and educators. The Board establishes the curriculum, engages faculty, provides expertise, and monitors progress by students seeking certification.

    To achieve certification, candidates must complete items on the CLEP check list: CLEP Certification Checklist
