Logo Use Guidelines
First, thanks in advance for your support of IACP! All IACP members are encouraged to use the IACP logo in conjunction with advertising, promotions, websites, and other business communications.
All we ask is that you abide by the following guidelines, on the honor system:
- Again, only IACP members in good standing may use the IACP logo.
- It is not necessary to obtain advance approval from IACP to use the logo, unless you feel uncertain about whether your usage will violate these guidelines.
- The IACP logo can be used on business materials, such as letterhead, catalogs, brochures, advertising, websites, business cards, social media platforms, and so forth, to indicate IACP membership or partnership (i.e., sponsorship, advertising, or other support of IACP).
- While the IACP logo may be used on marketing materials, it should not be used on contracts or items for sale, such as cookbooks.
- Under no circumstances may any member use the IACP logo in such a manner that the sponsorship, endorsement, approval, or sanction of IACP could be construed.
- No member may redraw, reshape, trace, tilt, intersect, or photographically alter or distort the IACP logo. It may not be outlined, combined with any other symbol, or reversed out of a photographic or pictorial background.
- IACP reserves the right to determine in each case whether the logo is being properly used to indicate membership or partnership. If IACP determines that the logo is being improperly used, IACP reserves the right to deny use of it.
- Upon termination of IACP membership or partnership, individuals and companies must immediately cease use of the IACP logo.

Sponsorship & Advertising
The IACP Partner Program provides a unique opportunity to present your product or service to some of the most recognized, respected, and influential food personalities and newsmakers in the world - not only at our Annual Conference, but year-round.
IACP members number more than 2,000 and span virtually every culinary discipline: food writers, publishers and editors, cookbook authors, food photographers and stylists, TV personalities, cooking teachers, publicists, chefs, and restaurateurs—literally a "Who's Who" in the world of food. Through their newspaper and magazine articles, cooking classes, and television and personal appearances, these professionals influence the opinions and buying habits of millions of other culinary professionals and consumers.
An IACP partnership through sponsorship and/or a traditional or new media buy is an unparalleled way to raise brand visibility among these leaders and to extend your franchise into those audiences they engage. Some 30 partnership opportunities are offered at our Annual Conference, in addition to year-round exposure on our website, in our newsletters, and through eblasts and social media platforms. Customized and multiple-year sponsorship packages can also be tailored to your unique marketing needs. And remember: when you join the IACP Partner Program, you not only meet our members, but you also meet our sponsors — definitively the world's most prominent culinary businesses and institutions.
