The 3% Conference is not a women’s conference, but a business event about the enormous upside of a making marketing a more gender-equal and diverse industry. Forward-thinking brands and agencies who rally in support of 3% demonstrate leadership around what is widely considered the central issue to the future of the advertising business.

Sponsor a cocktail party

We’re different from other conferences in two important ways:

We’re creatively driven. One of the benefits of partnering with The 3% Conference is we are first and foremost a group of creative thinkers. Unlike other conferences that are mere logo-fests, we work with each of our top sponsors to create a fully customized experience. From Apple’s custom-designed Lounge to Adobe’s multi-city student scholarship and portfolio review, we listen first, co-create second, and execute with excellence for a lasting impression on attendees. In six short years, we have the repeat support of virtually all major ad agencies and many top brands.

We’re results oriented. A recent Businessweek cover story about the explosion of women’s conferences mentioned The 3% Conference, plus expressed the need for more conferences to do what we already do: engage men (Manbassadors); give attendees marching orders for change (our 100Things microactions), and create accountability (our Certification Program). We’re proud to be an example of a conference that provides so much more than inspiration and is igniting real change.

Custom engagements for brands

Sponsorship Levels

In 2016, we introduced a new format that our attendees responded favorably to, so we have continued it. The majority of day one is themed tracks where attendees go deep during five-hours of master classes taught by legends in the business. Day two will be TED-style presentations that provide a healthy injection of inspiration from top speakers, authors, and thinkers. Every attendee will leave with an understanding of what his/her role is in helping to #changetheratio.

We offer creative opportunities for agencies and brands to engage the audience at every level. From social takeovers to an inaugural ping-pong tournament, we can meet your needs.
