IRF News

IRF Winter Planning Meeting at Enchantment Resort

The IRF will be holding its winter planning meeting at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, AZ.  Enchantment's total indoor meeting and event space exceeds 13,000 square feet. An additional 20,000 square feet of outdoor banquet space takes advantage of the spectacular surroundings. The increase in space offers more flexibility for smaller groups seeking Sedona meetings, and the enhancements meet the expectations of larger groups with diverse needs. Interested in providing feedback to the IRF on its 2014 research docket?  Click here to let us know what we should be researching.





IRF 2014 Trends Paper Coming Soon!

The 2014 Trends Paper is set for release late December 2013.
