Meet the Sponsors

If you’ve ever attended the IHAF Annual Conference & Awards Show, you know it’s chock full of inspiring keynotes, informative breakouts, and opportunities to network with in-house pros. What you may not realize is that a keystone of our event is the support we receive from stalwart sponsors—companies that not only partner with IHAF but partner with all of you to enhance the contribution in-house agencies make.

Our premier sponsor this year is Adobe, who will be front and center at the conference, making a brief presentation about their latest strides partnering in house. As one of the best-known creative solutions software companies out there, we’re excited to hear what Adobe has to say.

Express KCS, provider of design and marketing production services for print, digital and video, holds the title as this year’s IHAF Awards Show sponsor. They’re putting their creativity to the test as they craft signature drinks for our cocktail reception followed by a salacious seated dinner.

If you’re traveling from out of town, you likely booked a room at The Revere Hotel—our conference venue. Upon check-in, each guest will receive a gift bag, compliments of IHAF member, InMotionNow—the leading provider of workflow solutions for enterprise creative and marketing teams.

Throughout our two days together, conference goers are also encouraged to get to know Aquent, MEI and Project Bourbon. These three along with Adobe will be on hand to discuss their services and stamp your “passport” as you journey from one to the next. Passport, you say? That’s right! We’ve added something new this year—a special raffle during our closing ceremony. Simply introduce yourself to each of the sponsors noted inside your passport and they’ll issue you a stamp. Then submit your passport Thursday afternoon and you’ll be entered to win our Brand Swag Bag—filled with prizes from each of our keynote presenters: Lenovo, Starbucks and State Farm Insurance.

With so much going on, we want to be sure you’re appropriately fueled. Thanks to Cutters Studios, you will be—they’re sponsoring our breakfast roundtables Thursday morning. And, TeamPeople is supplying snacks to keep you energized throughout the day. Speaking of energy, veteran member and longtime sponsor Communications Collaborative is providing charging stations for your mobile devices, so even your phone can get juiced!

Rounding things out we have ELEMENT to thank for the video loops in the viewing area at Wednesday night’s cocktail reception. We’d also like to recognize StudioNow for the swanky water bottles they’re contributing and Quad/Graphics for the equally swanky signage they’re printing. And finally, appreciation goes out to Amnet, Boom Ideanet, Orion Worldwide and Nylon Technology—all bighearted supporters!

We’re grateful to have such a terrific lineup of sponsors who are not only invested in IHAF, but invested in the in-house community. Please take a moment to meet these folks and thank them for their generosity. We heartily endorse their offerings and hope you will consider collaborating with one or more on an upcoming assignment.
