Forge Fair 2021

October 26-28, 2021 | TCF Center, Detroit, Michigan


Information is ever-changing and FIA is committed to updating our approach to address concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will keep all our exhibitors and attendees informed with new developments in order to ensure everyone is aware of regulations and protocols so that we can provide a safe environment for all.

Forge Fair 2021 will take place in one of the larger exhibit halls at TCF Center – 142,065 square feet. This allows us to space out the booths, create wider aisles and gives plenty of room for attendees to spread out comfortably.


FIA and Forge Fair 2021 will adhere to the guidelines and requirements provided by the state of Michigan and the TCF Center. PPE will be made available and sanitizing stations will be set-up throughout the facility. To view the current requirements from the TCF Center – click here:
