McDonald’s to Host Leadership Summit

In just a few months, one of the best-known restaurant chains in the world will open its doors to the in-house agency community as host of this year’s IHAF Leadership Summit. That’s right, we’re making our way to the windy city as McDonald’s Corporation welcomes all of you to their brand-new headquarters on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

The IHAF Leadership Summit is an executive-level event that offers opportunities to network and learn from corporate and creative pace setters as they share proven strategies for organizational and operational success. This full-day conference features assorted keynote presentations, including executives from Bloomberg, IBM and, of course, McDonald’s.


Participants will also enjoy a private, guided tour of McDonald’s nine-story, state-of-the-art facility including sights that are sure to delight—from the renowned Hamburger University to their nostalgic wall of Happy Meal toys. Our day together will culminate in a cocktail reception, where Summit attendees can mix and mingle, getting to know more about each other while enjoying the Chicago skyline.

The IHAF Leadership Summit is a national meeting of corporate and creative executives, focused on what in-house agency leaders are doing to take their organizations to the next level.
