Sponsorship

By aligning with the AMA, your company gains instant credibility and top-notch exposure to a large number of companies and marketing professionals. We consistently communicate with our members and other marketing professionals through a series of monthly events featuring excellent marketing and business speakers.

We also communicate with these individuals via our website and e-mail reminders for our monthly events. Whether you need to recruit new employees, sell marketing related services or products, or just want to keep in touch with your marketing peers, no other group offers you this level of access to this group of decision makers. 

Be recognized as a valuable AMA sponsor throughout the entire year. Your organization will receive recognition for your support at every event and have unique opportunities to reach the AMA’s membership of marketing professionals throughout the community.
