United and Uncensored

We’re eight weeks from getting down to the nitty-gritty of what’s really going on in house—embracing what unites us by sharing our common experiences at the 2022 IHAF Conference & Awards. This year’s event is all about keeping it real; that’s what makes it UNCENSORED. Here’s what you can expect when you join us in November.

Candid Keynotes.  This year’s keynote speakers are not holding back. Venturing into new territories, these industry pros are changing the game. Get energized to innovate when you hear from Cliff Stevens about his team's journey to evolve Liberty Mutual's in-house agency into an LLC. Be inspired to kickstart a more-inclusive culture with Citi’s Nikki Darden and Peter Viento at the podium, sharing what their team is doing to promote a trans-affirmative brand. Check out our full, unbridled lineup here.

Break the Mold. Break out from the everyday of traditional conferences by dropping into our break-out session by the same name. A unique, open-forum format, Breakout from the Everyday is for those with burning questions and a desire to steer the conversation. What’s more, you can attend the session multiple times, affording you the chance to swap stories with a host of conferencegoers. If a traditional presentation is your preference, there are also plenty of other options with straight-talking breakouts on assorted topics. Click here for our full conference agenda.

Unfiltered Conversations, Lasting Connections. This year’s IHAF conference features more time than ever for spontaneous exchanges with fellow in-house professionals. Reconnect with old friends over breakfast and make new connections during our dedicated networking breaks. The time to talk industry is all yours this November. Take advantage of it!

Deserved Recognition. You’ve worked hard all year; let’s celebrate! Join us to toast the past year of in-house accomplishments with two distinct competitions. The IHAF Awards recognizes in-house agencies for creative excellence and team performance. Cheers your peers’ creativity during our evening soirée complete with cocktail reception, dinner and an after-party. The next day, we’ll crown the 2022 In-House Agency of the Year!

Talk Shop-ley. In  the heart of Boston’s Back Bay and famed Copley Square, the IHAF Conference & Awards is happening in one of the city’s premier locations. Talk shop with a backdrop of spectacular views and opt-in to our historic trolley tour—included with your in-person ticket. Coming in from out of town? Reserve your room at the Westin Copley and take advantage of our reduced rate until October 25.

Claim Your Seat. The annual IHAF Conference & Awards is your opportunity to rub elbows with the best in the industry. All you need to do is register. Join us on November 16-17 for two packed days of unfettered insight from in-house thought leaders and colleagues alike.
