Submit Your Best Ideas in TACVB's Idea Fair

TACVB's Board of Directors, staff, and the Idea Fair Committee are excited to announce Idea Fair 2017! Submissions for this year's Idea Fair will once again be online, and opened June 1. Your entries will be accepted through June 30 at Submissions should be for work completed since July 1, 2016.


We know how hard you work, and we know how proud you are of that work. And you should be! In an effort to demonstrate our appreciation of the work you do in promoting your destinations, TACVB is raising the bar on the entire Idea Fair experience this year. BIG changes are coming your way!


A list of the changes are below, but perhaps the most important of these is how you'll be recognized. No more waiting several months for your awards. Nope, this year you will be recognized during Annual Conference at a special Awards Luncheon especially for you, our TDM designees, and two very special awards. The Luncheon will be held on Thursday, August 17 and will be sponsored by Intelliquest.


Now, on to the list of upgrades!


All-New Budget Category

This year we are introducing the $3 Million dollar+ category. The previous $1 million dollar+ will now be capped at $2,999,999.


Entry Fee

The fee for entering each entry is increasing from $30 to $50.


Judge's Choice Voting

This year, we are impaneling a distinguished and experienced group of industry experts to judge your entries. Voting for Judge's Choice will take place before the conference at an undisclosed location. TACVB staff has secured the judges to ensure fair and accurate judging.


People's Choice Voting

Voting this year for the People's Choice will take place before the conference as well. Voting will take place online from July 17 - July 31. This year you will be able to login with an account just once and vote for all of your choices. This will streamline the process of voting and to make certain your email is only registered with one ballot.


On-line Payments

WOOHOO!! You will now be able to pay your entire invoice for your entries through the Idea Fair website!


In-House vs. Agency Awards

In previous years, we have asked you to denote whether a project was completed in-house or through an agency. We just never truly separated the two and awarded them appropriately. But this year that all changes. All work that the judges will view, will be judged and awarded according to the in-house or agency notations.


Awards Luncheon

All awards will be presented during Annual Conference in Fort Worth at a special Awards Luncheon on Thursday, August 17th. Two finalists for each Judge's Choice category will be announced prior to Annual Conference, and the winner will be revealed at the Awards Luncheon.


Are you ready? Idea Fair submissions are OPEN! We can't wait to see what you've been up to!
