Attendee Lists

Curious who’s attending the conference?

A benefit exclusive to FAI membership is access to an Excel document of the most recent attendee list with email addresses for use in year-round professional communication, and pre/post conference business.

If you are not an FAI member, we will be sending the attendee list via email to all conference registrants in December and February. You can also email us directly at fai@folk.org if you’d like to view the list.

The list is not to be used in any way to send bulk messages or copied showcase announcements. It is to be used for direct one-to-one communication and invitations.

Please be mindful about your target audience when contacting other attendees. Email is a powerful tool to increase your visibility and connect with other attendees before and after the Conference, but sending too many unfocused emails may reflect poorly on you. Please respect the inboxes of all delegates, the criteria by which this information is made available, and the cooperative nature of membership.

Best Practices for Email Marketing

We strongly encourage all attendees to consider best practices for email marketing, including following the guidelines set forth by the CAN-SPAM Act. As you prepare your pre-Conference marketing, please take note of the following guidelines:

  • Sort and segment your lists! It will reflect poorly on you if you email attendees who don’t find your message to be relevant.
  • Send personalized, clear, and targeted emails. Tell your recipients who you are and why you’re emailing them.
  • Give people the option to opt-out and honor those requests promptly.
