We invite your firm to partner with the Houston Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors as a Sponsor of our 2022 Annual Conference to be held Monday, April 4, 2022. The Houston Chapter for over a decade has provided quality continuing professional education to its members through its sold-out Annual Conferences. After hosting a virtual only event last year, we are excited to offer our participants either an in-person experience at the NRG Center or limited remote viewing using the Inspire virtual technology platform. Sponsors will receive benefits through both options.

Our 2022 Annual Conference program offers 8 CPE hours from General Sessions and concurrent sessions. In-person attendees will be able to select from concurrent sessions from the following topics: technical tips and techniques, fraud awareness, digital innovation, leadership enhancement, and hot topics. Virtual participants will view each General Session and three pre-determined concurrent sessions.

NRG Center’s exhibit hall area provides open access to the in-person attendees as they transition between Conference sessions and the designated areas for breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon breaks, and the post‐Conference networking reception. By offering a remote viewing option, we expect that fewer in-person attendees will provide our sponsors with a less crowded and more intimate face to face networking and interaction experience.

The Inspire virtual platform used by the remote participants will provide sponsor logo visibility on the Conference home page and provide each sponsor their own page. Depending on your sponsor level, the Inspire platform will allow you to describe your firm’s service or product, post your social media and website links, attach links to your firm’s thought leadership documents and videos, message with participants, and display your logo during your sponsored session.

Over the years, we have developed a mutually beneficial partnership with our valued Sponsors of this marquee event. We are again offering three sponsorship levels (by priority): Platinum Plus, Platinum, and Gold. Platinum Plus offers the overall greatest benefit to your firm, including priority in choosing your in-person exhibit booth location and session to sponsor. Platinum Plus sponsors also can sponsor one of the following: registration, luncheon, morning or afternoon breaks, post-Conference networking reception, Conference app, Conference program matrix handout, or photo booth. Platinum Plus and Platinum levels can select a Conference program session to sponsor. All sponsor logos will be visible in our Conference app and on the Inspire platform home page and will receive a pre-Conference listing of participants.

This Sponsor and Exhibitor Guide outlines the benefits offered by each sponsorship level and important information about the in-person exhibit booths and related materials handling as well as creation of your firm’s page in the virtual platform. Please refer to the Sponsor and Exhibitor Checklist for key actions and due dates to assist with your Conference planning.

By registering and paying early, you will maximize your firm’s exposure in our pre‐Conference marketing and secure your sponsor priority. Remember that in-person exhibit booth assignment priority as well as logo posting on the Conference website and use in Conference marketing materials are by sponsor level and date of payment receipt.

We look forward to partnering with your firm to make our 2022 Annual Conference another great success!

We are excited to welcome you back to an in-person conference at the NRG Center.  Join us on April 4, 2022 for an energizing day of learning and sharing.  The theme for the 2022 Houston IIA  Annual Conference is "Expanding Our Role."  In addition to our three dynamic keynote speakers, you can choose from 15 concurrent session speakers sharing their expertise in innovative and creative manners.  You will have ample time to network with colleagues and friends in our extensive exhibit hall.
