About the Event

The International Pole Convention, founded in 2009, is the original annual event celebrating the pole dance and pole fitness community with hundreds of attendees, all-star performances and featured product and service exhibitors brought to a new city every year. 2014 has brought new ownership,management and focus to this classic event with more opportunities to expand.

In 2015 we head to the Crescent City to experience true Southern hospitality and enjoy incredible art, culture and food as we laissez les bon temps rouler, a Cajun term for "let the good times roll!"
