Get Ready to be Uncensored

With a little over a week until the annual IHAF Conference & Awards, the in-house commuity is brimming with anticipation for this year’s UNCENSORED event. To help you prepare, here’s some quick intel on next week’s happenings.

Check In and Relax. Report to the Westin Copley, check in at our registration table, and don your badge. A statement piece, your attendee nametag not only completes your look, it comes in handy when making new connections—get this, over 250 of you will be there IRL.

And because nothing helps break the ice like sharing a good meal, first on the agenda is our networking lunch. Enjoy catching up with familiar faces or making new friends as soon as you arrive.

Insight at Every Turn. Following a brief welcome, we’ll turn it over to the pros for our formal speaking sessions. Get ready because these industry insiders are telling it like it is…in three distinct formats.

Keynote Sessions: In long-form presentations, in-house leaders take us behind the scenes on the issues they’re facing. Look forward to hearing from Citi, Liberty Mutual, Nestlé and more as they share their uncensored experiences.

Lightning Talks: These bite-sized blocks tackle the hottest issues in house—in just 15 minutes. This year’s lineup is covering a range of subjects from the metaverse to creative transformation.

Breakout Groups: Ten sessions—you choose the topics that interest you most. Want to plan ahead? Take a look at our session summaries to find your favorites.

Sip, Play, Chat. Connect with fellow conferencegoers during our dedicated networking breaks. Enjoy your favorite beverage in one of our conversation-starter cups. Custom labels help you find others who are interested in the same things you are.

Our bingo cards are another way to meet new people. Every attendee will receive one to play throughout our two days together. Submit your completed card before the conference closes and you’ll be entered to win a pair of AirPods Pro. (We told you those nametags would come in handy!)

Toast the Champs. As day one of the conference comes to an end, our evening of fun begins with the IHAF Awards Show. Peruse the gallery of entries, enjoy a seated dinner and raise your glass to this year’s winners. The following day, we’ll celebrate more peak-performers when we announce the 2022 In-House Agency of the Year.

In-Person Perks. If you’re joining us in Boston, you also get a few “extras” that accompany your ticket. In addition to in-person networking and a broader choice of breakout sessions, you’re also eligible to hop on our complimentary Trolley Tour of Boston. Just be sure to pre-register so we know you’re coming.

We look forward to your participation with us next week. If you have yet to register, tickets are still available! Join us—we’d love to have you.

Check out our full agenda for a more-detailed look at next week’s event.
