3 ways vendors and consultants win business at Ragan events


Ragan conferences attract nearly 4,000 attendees each year to the headquarters of top organizations such as Microsoft, LinkedIn, Disney, Johns Hopkins, SAS and many others.

But why do vendors, agencies and consultants want to be there?

1. The Ragan event audience is a targeted market. Sponsors meet managers, directors, VPs and department heads in corporate communications, public affairs, HR communications, digital marketing, employee communications, public relations, marketing, social media and many other fields. Our attendees come from a variety of industries and organizations including aerospace, Fortune 1000 companies, nonprofit, finance, retail, government, hospitality, education and more.

2. Ragan gets creative to get people connected. Ragan offers a mix of traditional and inventive sponsorship opportunities, such as speaking as an industry innovator in a session or keynote, hosting a bonus breakfast or lunch session with demonstrations, wooing a niche group of attendees at a dine-around, displaying top work or demos at an exhibitor booth or presenting a TED-style talk to inspire new business.

3. Ragan makes it easy—and fun! Traveling, setting up big displays, preparing a presentation and networking all take time and energy. Ragan’s staff works hard to simplify the process and to put sponsors and sales teams at ease so they can focus more on building business and less on the details.

Join Mark Ragan in Texas or Florida for his Internal Communications Leadership Forum


Ragan Communications’ CEO is inviting 50 internal comms leaders to Austin on Sept. 24-25 and Orlando on Nov. 12-13 for two days of innovation, hard work and problem-solving.

By Ragan Staff | Posted: August 28, 2015

As an internal communications executive, your to-do list never ends. Demands come at you from every direction. Your plate is full. Enhancing your skills seems impossible.

That’s exactly why Mark Ragan created the Internal Communications Leadership Forum.

This is not a traditional conference. There won’t be any keynotes, case studies or long-winded lectures.

You’ll sit at a table with two dozen peers. You’ll exchange ideas, solve problems, network and benchmark your communications programs. The time away from the office will be so beneficial that it’s worth letting your department run itself for two days.

If you’d like to join, connect with Mark Ragan on LinkedIn and ask about attending. He’ll take it from there.

A few organizations that will attend the next two forums:

Con Edison

Waddell and Reed Financial




UC San Diego Library

Norton Healthcare


Edmonton Police

One Gas


Seattle Children’s Hospital

Cisco Systems

Whole Foods Market


Raymond James Financial

Add your organization’s name to the list. Connect with Mark Ragan for your invitation.

Still not sure whether you’d like to come? Watch the video below from last year’s forum at Walt Disney World:
