Become a Sponsor

Winning is Everything is a unique event in that it is designed for the Managing Partners, CEOs, COOs and all senior leaders within public accounting firms. We have a limited number of exhibit spaces available annually, and place these exhibits in the same room or in close proximity to breakfasts, lunches, breaks and receptions to give attendees appropriate time and access to visit participating vendors. We also provide prizes and contests to encourage the attendees to visit as many vendors as possible.

We do not differentiate between exhibitors and attendees, giving everyone an opportunity to participate sessions and meals and to learn from our speakers. In fact, exhibitors are encouraged to attend the program when not engaged at their exhibit area.

What’s New for 2017?

We are always trying to keep it fresh! In keeping with our conference theme we have come up with a new game plan! This year we are bigger, better, stronger, and LONGER! Here are some of the highlights:

  • A more streamlined agenda targeted to the the managing partner,
  • A new session hosted by Allan Koltin on lateral talent recruiting & growth strategy
  • A pre-conference track dedicated to the firm of 2025
  • An additional keynote.

We are very serious about the value and benefits that we provide to our sponsors, and we continue to make adjustments and additions that will enhance your conference experience. As more information is available on our plans for 2017, we will post them on this site.


What Makes Winning is Everything Different?

  Winning is Everything truly is “The Practice Management Event of the Year” and provides clear advantages:

  • A strong history of top-notch hosts, speakers, attendees AND exhibitors, and a reputation to match.
  • Access to the true decision-makers that you want to meet (90% are managing partners, CEOs and COOs of a CPA firm).
  • Representation from the largest, most progressive firms in the industry (nearly 70% of the top 100 firms have attended Winning is Everything in the past 5 years).
  • A conference layout that is advantageous to exhibit traffic flow and sensitive to sponsor needs. (Attendees eat, drink and break in the same room as the sponsor exhibits).
  • Additional incentives and opportunities built into the conference that encourage attendees to interact with the sponsors.
  • Conference administration that works with each sponsor individually to provide the maximum benefit and return-on-investment.
  • Sponsor attendees have full access to all sessions, discussions, meals, etc.
  • Sponsoring organizations have the ability to select their own booth space on a first-come, first-served basis.
