Meet our 2016 Sponsors!

The IHAF Annual Conference & Awards Show is just around the corner. For months we’ve been planning this two-day event, from defining the theme and outlining the agenda to directing the details and prepping the presenters. As our biggest event of the year, the conference serves as an opportunity for in-house agencies from all over the country to gather in person to celebrate, network, and share stories about the challenges in-house agencies face.

While the IHAF team does a lot of work behind the scenes, what you may not realize is that a little over a dozen sponsor companies make this event possible as well. In fact, our conference is dependent on an array of sponsors who generously donate their time and resources—so we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge each of them.

Thunder, this year’s premier conference sponsor, will be stepping up to the microphone on November 9th to tell us about the work they’re doing partnering in house. As a leading creative management platform and one of “Forbes 100 Most Promising Companies in America,” we’re delighted Thunder is playing such a prominent role at this year’s event.

Adobe may be best known for “changing the world through digital experiences,” but did you know they are also the title sponsor for this year’s IHAF Awards Show? At the show, they will be generously providing signature cocktails along with the latest and greatest their team has to offer in-house professionals.

If you are staying overnight at the Revere Hotel, you’ll receive a gift bag upon check-in thanks to longtime sponsor, MetaCommunications—providing high-powered workflow and productivity solutions for creative teams. Representatives from Meta will be on hand at the conference to answer any questions you may have about how to make easy work of workflow.

And since the theme of our conference is Game Changers, we’ll also have dedicated space for you to have some fun. Express KCS, HOW Design Live and inMotionNow will each have booth space for interactive gaming that will help you get to know them and give you a chance to win some prizes! Who says networking isn’t fun?

We’re also welcoming Tippingpoint Labs to the podium this year as they facilitate one of our breakout sessions on how to “Build Your Internal Newsroom.” And, of course, special thanks goes out to Kirkwood Printing for producing this year’s IHAF Awards book as well as Quad Graphics for printing our conference signage along with our very first blog book.

And finally, we’d like to thank Logical Promotions for the crystal trophies we hand out at the IHAF Awards, TeamPeople for sponsoring this year’s coffee sleeves, and website and mobile app developer, Nylon Technology, for their first-time sponsorship, along with award-winning video production company, Element, for supporting us as well.

So, while the IHAF team is busy preparing for this year’s festivities, a host of sponsors are equally as invested in our success—and yours! Please take a moment to meet these folks and thank them for their generosity while at the conference. We hope you’ll consider working with one or more of them on an upcoming project of your own.
