About the Show

Find Unique Top-Quality Items At Our Annual Souvenir Gift Show

Founded in 2000, IGES is an annual souvenir & resort gift show in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, TN. As a favorite Tennessee show, it is held in late Fall and draws many buyers from specialty stores across the U.S., the Caribbean, and Canada. The show features more than 1,200 booths of name-drop items for souvenirs, coastal gifts, children’s toys & plush, resort apparel, gourmet, and Made in America to stock your retail and online stores. The show is primarily an order-writing show and features a newly added Cash & Carry Pavilion, exclusively in Sevierville.

The IGES souvenir & resort gift show is a can’t-miss for retailers in the industry looking for top-quality items at wholesale prices. With many opportunities for networking, many of our past attendees have created long-lasting relationships while finding new suppliers exhibiting at the show.
