About the SFIA Corporate Partner Program
– Over the last few years, the Sports & Fitness Industry Association has recognized a need to create a bridge between its members and the companies who are most closely connected and committed to serving our industry. In line with our recent strategic planning process and transition from SGMA to SFIA, our organization has established the SFIA Corporate Partner Program to address the need. This invitation-only partnership program is limited to fifteen leading firms and provides them with year-round exposure to SFIA members through customized marketing and sponsorship packages. In return, each selected SFIA Corporate Partner makes a long-term commitment to provide monetary support to the association that will fund, in part, the quality thought leadership, training and networking events that SFIA provides for its members.
