IAPI has launched its 2024 members campaign. The series of ads created by The Brill Building was initiated by IAPI and its board, specifically the growth council, to show the effectiveness of advertising in driving business growth. The premise of the B2B campaign is based on the Effies 2023 winning case studies that measured sales, growth in customer base, and value share, where they saw average uplifts directly caused by advertising.

The campaign was planned by Margaret Gilsenan of Boys+Girls with media by GroupM.
