Become A Sponsor
NAAIM is the optimal resource for active managers and a means for our sponsors to reach innovative, leading edge money managers. The success of NAAIM over its 23-year history is a result of the unique relationship between the members of NAAIM and the sponsors of our conferences and events. Many of the innovative investment tools available today to active managers were created in collaboration with NAAIM members, with the NAAIM membership among the first to support the new tools from mutual funds to trust companies, service providers and more.
To provide firms with access to the NAAIM membership, NAAIM offers a range of sponsorship opportunities at its annual conference and CRAM (Cultivating Relationships Among Managers) sessions throughout the year.
Each sponsorship level enjoys different benefits and exposure detailed in the following matrix. Your firm may also opt to sponsor foursomes in the NAAIM Classic Golf Tournament, support research into active investing via the second and third place Wagner Awards, provide the Wall Street Journal, Investor’s Business Daily and Barron’s newspapers to conference attendees.
We invite you to take advantage of the sponsorship opportunities available.
Platinum Conference Sponsorship
Platinum sponsorship comes second only to the National Sponsor in terms of visibility at the annual NAAIM Uncommon Knowledge conference. This sponsorship opportunity includes recognition as Platinum Sponsor in conference promotional emails and a brochure, as well as on-site recognition as co-sponsor of the Sunday night Welcome Reception and Tuesday evening cocktail party. A sponsor breakout session provides you with an expanded opportunity to tell your company’s story and explain its products and services. There is also an optional ability to provide a speaker for the main conference agenda. Guest passes and webinars offer additional support to your sales team.
The Gold Sponsorship level is designed for firms that wish to address interested members through a breakout session and recognize the importance of the NAAIM membership to their firm by co-sponsoring of the breakfast and breaks for a day. The sponsor table in the exhibit hall begins the relationship with an opportunity to promote your firm to all attendees and to encourage attendance at the breakout session. Gold sponsors are acknowledged as the hosts for the breakfast and refreshment breaks at the start of the conference day. Guest passes to non-member RIAs are an added benefit
A Silver Sponsorship is NAAIM’s traditional conference offering. This Sponsorship level allows a firm to present its products and services to the full NAAIM membership through the convenience of a table display in the sponsor hall and through participation in all conference activities.
To optimize exposure for all of its sponsors, NAAIM holds breakfast buffets and all refreshment breaks in the Sponsor Hall. Depending on the conference site configuration, the Tuesday evening reception is typically held in the Sponsor Hall.
Innovation Conference Sponsorship
NAAIM’s Innovation Sponsorship opportunity is designed for small and emerging firms offering innovative services or products to the NAAIM membership. For one day of the conference, Innovation Sponsors display their products and services through an exhibitor table outside the main sponsor hall. Innovation Sponsors are firms that might not otherwise be able to participate in the annual conference but whose offerings could benefit the NAAIM membership. It’s an opportunity to introduce new software and service providers to our membership and bring new ideas to the NAAIM membership. Ideally, we want to see our Innovation Sponsors succeed to become full conference sponsors in the future.
