Meet the Sponsors

Our largest event of the year is on deck—the IHAF Awards Show & Annual Conference. For months we’ve been planning this two-day gala, from defining the theme and outlining the agenda to directing the details and prepping the presenters. As today drew near, our pace grew more frenetic—though in just a few hours, calm will descend, the lights will go up and the show will go on. At that point, all fretting over parking passes and podium signs will end, and the fun will begin.


The IHAF Awards Show & Annual Conference is an opportunity for in-house agencies from all over the country to gather in person to celebrate creativity, network with one another, and share stories about the challenges in-house agencies face. And while the IHAF team does a lot of work behind the scenes, what you may not realize is that a dozen sponsor companies make this event possible.


Right now, the team at WB is setting up the gallery display for the IHAF Awards Show.Tippingpoint Labs is putting the finishing touches on their “virtual presentation” for the Branded Story award. And Pakcom is delivering the beautiful crystal trophies that will be presented to tonight’s winners. Your gift for attending? A bound book featuring all of the awards show entries, compliments of SG360.


The crew at Lunchpail Productions is also in motion. They’re packing their video and audio equipment so they can capture tonight’s events—tomorrow’s too! And Unigraphic is en route with the signage they printed and a special research book you’ll receive at the conference.


You’ll also have a chance to meet a few newcomers. Boom Ideanet will be on hand to talk about their crowdsourcing platform. Creative production powerhouse Express KCS will be there too! We’re happy to welcome back cloud-content provider Brightcove. And Lightbox Libraries with their unique photo booth—a fan favorite last year.


Finally, marcomm staffing specialist and veteran sponsor Communications Collaborative will be running a creative contest throughout the show. Newcomer Onward Search will be there too, to hear about your digital and creative talent needs.


So IHAF isn’t the only team that’s been busy preparing for the festivities. Twelve sponsors as invested in the success of the event as they are in the success of the in-house community have been with us all the way. Please take a moment to meet these folks and thank them for their generosity and commitment. We hope you’ll consider collaborating with one or more on an upcoming assignment. We heartily endorse their enthusiasm, expertise and partnership—not to mention their hard work!
