Welcome to the website of the International Independent Showmen’s Association, Inc., known to most as the “Gibtown Showmen’s Club”. We are a non profit private organization made up of people in the outdoor amusement industry. The original club building opened in 1966 and has expanded to be the largest Showmen’s Association in the United States. We have grown to over 4500 members from all over the United States and several foreign countries. For membership information refer to I.I.S.A. Membership Qualifications.
We are also the home of the largest trade show in the carnival industry. Our annual “Super Trade Show and Extravaganza” will celebrate its 55th year in 2023 (taking place February 14-17, 2023). Of the many trade shows in the country, we are most proud that ours is held on the club grounds and thank our Trade Show supervisors, chairpersons and committee for their continued loyalty to make this Trade Show approximately 98% volunteer. For more information regarding attending or exhibiting refer to the Trade Show section.
