Consumer consciousness has changed the way products and services are marketed today. It’s also changing the way we organize and run our respective teams. Purpose is not only a competitive differentiator; it is an expectation held by consumers and employees alike.

The 2023 IHAF Conference & Awards, Pursuing Purpose, centers on how internal agencies and corporate brand teams are instilling purpose into their marketing and organizational strategies. From in-house teams that are deliberate about defining who and what they are within their respective companies to brands that are committed to having a positive impact on society, Pursuing Purpose features sessions and speakers driven by purpose internally and externally.

The IHAF Conference & Awards is the premier event for marketing and creative professionals to network, learn and grow together. Flanked by the two-day conference is our ever-popular awards show, an evening affair that celebrates creativity across nearly 50 print and digital categories.

Join us on November 14-15 for two days of keynotes, breakouts, networking and awards. Pursuing Purpose is a hybrid event—in person at the Marriott Long Wharf in Boston, MA and streaming live for remote attendees. The IHAF Conference & Awards is open to in-house agency professionals (members and non-members) as well as value-added suppliers who are members of IHAF.
