Sponsorship allows companies to have exposure and engage with senior level B-to-B and client-side marketers – our members. Sponsorship at BMA/BAA national industry conferences or our B2 Awards program provides opportunities for organizations to have access to ANA/BMA/BAA members and conference attendees through speaking opportunities, networking functions, mobile engagement, on-site face-to-face interactions and so much more.

There are two levels of sponsorship offered at national industry conferences - conference sponsor and exhibitor, as well as two annual partnership programs which provide a comprehensive package of unique touch points to connect with ANA/BMA/BAA members and other conference attendees: the BMA Business Partner and the BAA Brand Activation Partner Program.

  • Conference Sponsors have the ability to choose specific sponsor assets at national industry conferences and include exclusive sponsorship of breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, Wi-Fi, receptions or dinner (where available). National industry conferences are open to members and non-members and registration fees apply.
  • Exhibitors achieve presence at national industry conferences with a dedicated tabletop exhibit located outside/inside the general session room.

The 2016 BAA/BMA Conference Schedule includes:

  • BAASH - Brand Activation and The Customer Journey, April 18-20, Westin Chicago River North, Chicago, IL
