The International Advertising Association (IAA) has announced winners of its 2015 IAA Inspire Awards and will be making presentations at the inaugural 2015 IAA Awards Gala Dinner, immediately following the leadership forum on May 18, 2015, at the InterContinental Hotel, Park Lane, London.
The IAA Inspire Awards were created to celebrate IAA members who have achieved leadership excellence and contributed their vision, efforts, services and professional expertise to the advancement of the International Advertising Association, and inspired the marketing communications industry locally, regionally and globally. The awards also pay tribute to the lifetime achievements and services of leaders in the IAA and their contributions to the global marketing communications industry.
Speaking on the occasion, Heather Leembruggen, chairman of the IAA Inspire Awards, comments, "This year, IAA is proud to initiate the IAA Inspire Awards to salute the leadership and vision of our members and their achievements on the world stage. Our global footprint in over 40 countries gives IAA members the scope and scale to make a significant contribution towards stimulating, enhancing and building the marketing communications industry worldwide."
Faris Abouhamad, IAA chairman and world president, says, "Our IAA Champion Inspire Awards recognise those with longer, distinguished service to the association and the industry, as demonstrated by those receiving the awards."
IAA claims to be the world's only globally-focussed integrated advertising trade association with membership representing advertising agencies and the media. The IAA comprises corporate members, organisational members, educational affiliates, as well as 56 chapters with individual members and young professionals from 76 countries, including the top 10 economies in the world.
