At the 15th IFA-Conference on October 28/29 2013, Football's global players meet again in Zurich.
The location of our 15th anniversary event will be revealed shortly.
The global world of football is moving fast. Sometimes one needs to take a break from the daily agenda in order to clear one's mind and exchange ideas with handpicked decision-makers from clubs, leagues, associations, sponsors, agencies and the media. Among other things, IFA is a think tank: High-level stakeholders from the global footbal world shared their experiences, their vision and expertise, made new contacts and opened a dialogue with fascinating personalities during breaks and at the VIP Dinner.
The attendance of IFA events - the annual IFA Conference in Zurich and all special IFA Roundtable Meetings around the world -
is by personal invitation only.
IFA carefully selects potential guests so as to maintain the highest possible level of business acumen, calibre of speakers and attendees alike and top level business leaders of the industry.
