SSIA Sponsorship

As of 2011, the creation of the Sport & Social Industry Association (SSIA) has created an enormous opportunity for brands to connect with sport and social clubs through one point of contact. In the past, the clubs were too fragmented to create an effective marketing program on a multi-market level. Campaigns were, however, always very effective where activation occurred.

Now with sport and social clubs working together and streamlined marketing/sponsorship programs across the country implemented, brands can reach this highly desirable audience (eg., active and professional adults ages 21-40 yrs) like never before. To learn more about sport and social clubs, our audience, club locations and the types of opportunities available to brands, please email Also, if interested attending our next conference, please see “How To Join” below.
