Members of the Independent Event Producers Organization met together in Orlando at the Cheerleading & Dance Worlds for a photo op and to support other independent companies. Due to schedule conflicts with the photo time, other IEP members who also attended Worlds were unable to meet at the designated time but were there to support independents as well.
