Sponsorship Opportunities

IMAGINE being able to…


…prospect successfully in the C-Suite, with a firm’s true decision makers.


…open client doors & close business almost effortlessly…with groups large & small…like so many of our ASCEND alumni.


These and other top benefits firms across the country are growing & dominating their market because they are able to have a better conversation with their prospect than their competition can (see Nelson Griswold’s column in EBA magazine on this). But to have that better conversation, you must be able to provide your prospect with not only answers but resources… valuable solutions that your prospects need & want… solutions that your competition doesn’t have. Your portfolio must contain the right resources that will allow you to have that better conversation.


At ASCEND, our sponsors aren’t merely vendors trying to sell you something. These firms provide the valuable resources – the solutions – that your firm needs to solve problems for your clients… or sometimes, perhaps, even for your own agency.


Meaningful conversations


ASCEND is your opportunity as an agency leader to have meaningful conversations with these solution providers to discover what solutions they offer and how your firm could profit by bringing them to your clients or your own firm. Only then you can make an educated decision on which solutions make sense for your firm and meet the needs of your clients.


At ASCEND, you have multiple opportunities to discover the innovative solutions that our Sponsor Partners can provide you:


  • Intimate conversations at the Expert Roundtables;
  • In-depth discussions in the ASCEND Solution Pavilion;
  • Insightful give-and-take during General Session presentations; and
  • Valuable informal conversations during breaks, meals, and over cocktails & coffee.


ASCEND is where innovative agency leaders come to discover innovative strategies & resources to differentiate & grow their business.
