IATB is the Intellectual Property and trademark of the International Association of Trans Bodybuilders, inc. The Intellectual Property is only licensed to potential hosts after a proper legal agreement which will give the new host the right to plan and organize an official IATB Competition at an agreed location.
We also welcome applications from other individuals in the community with prior event planning and/or bodybuilding/powerlifting experience.
What it takes to host an IATB event:
1. APPLICATION OR INVITATION
New IATB hosts are invited by an IATB representative or may fill out an application on the official IATB website. IATB reviews each application and makes a decision based on timing (how long the planning will take) and space (event location, room for competition, stage, backstage, etc.).
2. LICENSE AGREEMENT
Once the application is approved, both parties will sign a one-time (one event) agreement. After an initial successful event, contracts can be renewed for up to 3 consecutive years or events.
The host/team will be trained and given all the logistical information to host an IATB event. See the appendix at the end of the handbook for a list of all the documents.
