NDSF IAFE Awards

Our very own North Dakota State Fair was internationally recognized with six Awards of Excellence at the International Association of Fairs & Expositions Convention!

NDSF won 2nd place in Miscellaneous Marketing for their door wraps, 3rd place in At-Home Activity Marketing, 1st place in Additional Competitive Exhibit Measures taken with the American Welding Society, 3rd place in Sponsorship Innovation with the American Welding Society, 2nd place in Non-Fair Facility Usage Event Rental with Rodeo Minot and 1st place for Best Facility Website.

KK BOLD has been the NDSF’s agency of record for the past 18 years and recently signed another 2-year agreement. Over the years the NDSF has won over 70 marketing awards, many of which KK BOLD is proud to have been a part of creating.

KK BOLD President LaRoy Kingsley – “When we began working with the North Dakota State Fair they were competing against other fairs and expos in the 100K-250K category but in 2009 because of their success and growth they moved into the 250K-500K category, competing against some of the other major fairs in that category.”

KK BOLD is happy to congratulate the NDSF on another excellent fair in 2021. It was not without its challenges, but they rose above it all and not only persevered, but exceeded expectations. We are proud of the work we did as a partner in those efforts.
