Event Details | Conference

The in-house agency model was prompted in large part by corporate pressure to drive down the cost of advertising. Fast and cheap became the mantra of many internal teams. Over the past decade, IHAF has seen a marked change in this niche industry. In-house agencies have shifted from order-takers to business partners—with most tackling complex issues like implementing multi-channel strategies and integrating emerging technologies within existing infrastructures.

The 2016 IHAF Leadership Summit focuses on what in-house agency leaders are doing to take their organizations to the next level—turning today’s challenges into tomorrow’s success stories. Join us for a day of compelling presentations, engaging conversation and ample opportunities to connect with the nation’s leading in-house business and creative executives. We'll conclude with a guided, VIP tour of Coca-Cola Studios and The Coca-Cola Company's renown Mainstreet experience, followed by a special cocktail reception and networking.

Hosted by: Coca-Cola StudiosThe Coca-Cola Company, One Coca-Cola Plaza, Atlanta, GA
