The IHAF Annual Conference & Awards Show is our biggest event of the year. It is also the premiere networking and learning opportunity for in-house agency professionals, with over 300 attendees. Flanked by our two-day conference is the popular IHAF Awards Show—an evening affair, celebrating creativity across print and digital categories.

Our 2017 conference, BRAND NEW, explored how strong brands connect with consumers, differentiate from competitors, and integrate seamlessly across touchpoints in the marketplace. If you were unable to attend, you can experience it through our photo album or recorded presentations available for IHAF members to download. 

With a mix of inspiring keynotes, breakout sessions and ample networking, the IHAF Annual Conference & Awards Show offers unique opportunities for in-house agency leaders and contributors to keep pace with today's marketing marketplace.

Our 2018 conference will take place on November 8-9 at the Aloft Boston Seaport hotel. Registration for this event will open in the spring. To reserve your hotel room now, follow this link
