2020 NETWORK SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Join us in this major milestone and possible final traditional exhibit hall sponsorship opportunity with the Garrett Planning Network!


Sponsoring the Garrett Planning Network as a National or Annual Retreat sponsor is a win for all. Our members get access to high quality services and products.  As a sponsor, your company gets access to financial advisors who are the decision makers when it comes to purchasing products and services for their firms.  

The members of the Garrett Planning Network own or work for independent fee-only RIA firms, work as hourly/time based planners serving clients from all walks of life, are deeply committed to their clients, have efficiency as a high priority, and are strongly supportive of member firms, sharing information and advice on the Network’s internal intranet, the Knowledge Bank.  

As a Garrett Planning Network Sponsor, you receive maximum networking time for member-sponsor interactions at our annual Retreat and at higher sponsor levels, your company receives multiple opportunities for presenting your company’s value to our entire membership.  

We have the luxury of “Run-of-the-House” at the The Elms Hotel & Spa in beautiful Excelsior Springs, MO August 6-9th, 2020. ​Find out more about The Elms here. This 20th Anniversary Retreat will be like no other - it will be a must attend event for our members and all veterans.
