International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) is the leading non-profit trade organization for live entertainment industry professionals. Founded in 1970, IEBA provides unparalleled networking opportunities and continuing education to its Members to strengthen relationships, foster growth and increase revenue for the live entertainment industry. Representing over $1 billion in buying power, IEBA is an intimate organization that makes a huge impact.
IEBA and its Annual Conference stand alone in the entertainment industry by showcasing a diverse and uniquely-crafted lineup of live entertainment and by providing top-tier informative sessions with the entertainment business’s leading decision makers.
EBA was conceived by two talent buyers, Hubert Long and Harry “Hap” Peebles. Peebles and Long felt that talent buyers needed a voice in the entertainment industry. They believed that a group of buyers could share information and, with this shared knowledge, each could make better decisions and those informed business decisions would lead to increased success. From two founding members in 1970 to nearly 1,000 active members in 2014, IEBA’s focus remains the same: Networking, Information, Live Music.
