Official #IPMI 2024 Charity Partners

IPMI is delighted to have HONK and Duncan Solutions as our 2024 Conference & Expo Charity Partners. 

IPMI and HONK would like to take this opportunity to inform you of our ongoing partnership in sustainability efforts regarding outreach to the local Columbus community. When exhibitors participate in our event, thousands of products are packaged and shipped. At the end of the event, some exhibitors choose to leave their items on the show floor due to excessive return shipping costs. In previous years, our staff simply gathered IPMI materials donated them to a local charity in conjunction with our local Convention & Visitors Bureau. Our goal is to increase our outreach and the amount of donations to the community. 

To achieve this goal, we would love to have your participation. We encourage you to leave show items that you do not plan to ship back on the event floor so we can donate them to a local charity on your behalf. In doing so, you can reduce shipping costs as well as carbon emissions from transportation.  All donated items will be distributed to the United Way of Central Ohio. 

United Way of Central Ohio are your neighbors, co-workers, and friends. We are a collaboration of donors, volunteers, organizations, and experts—UNITED around the shared sense of purpose to reduce poverty in our community. Founded in 1923, United Way of Central Ohio is one of the largest United Ways in the country. We bring together more than 40,000 donors, advocates, and volunteers, because when we speak and act together, we have the power to do more, and our impact multiplies.

United Way of Central Ohio is focused on fighting poverty by investing in the most effective partners that get results through a network of more than 90 local nonprofit partners. 

Save money, save the environment, and help the community. 

 Preferred donation items are: 
•    Show bags, pens, and notepads
•    Promotional and giveaway items 
•    Furniture and household items 
•    Bottled Water 

If you would like to donate materials,please bring your donation designated area in the Expo Hall on Wednesday, June 12. IPMI will coordinate the pickup of these items to the United Way of Central Ohio. 

Supporting Social Mobility: Duncan Solutions and Boys & Girls Clubs

Duncan Solutions supports mobility on our roads and in our communities. At the 2024 IPMI Conference & Expo, we will host members and staff from Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Ohio. Their participation will give them unique, direct insight into our dynamic industry and its many career paths. Our visitors will join us at booth 933, and we will bring them on tours of the exhibit hall to meet and interact with attendees. We also will contribute $10,000 to their Club organization.

This is our third consecutive year of partnering with local Clubs during the IPMI Conference and Expo.
  • In 2023, we hosted 70+ guests from Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County. We donated more than $41,000 to the Clubs, including more than $16,000 contributed by partners before, during, and after our silent auction event.
  • In 2022, we welcomed guests from Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana. We donated more than $29,000 – including $3,000 from partners – that enabled Clubs to buy and distribute additional school supplies to their members.
Please join us in this important effort by visiting booth 933 to make your own contribution and to share your career advice and industry expertise with our Club visitors. (For each business card we collect, we will contribute an additional $5.) Thank you for your partnership in helping local youth realize their full potential.
