MAG Sponsorship

The MAG is seeking business partners to join with the Member Merchants in driving positive change in the payments industry. The MAG seeks Sponsors that desire to fully engage with the group and that will become actively involved in helping achieve the goals of the organization. Sponsoring the MAG will provide your company the opportunity to meet with the largest consumer payments merchants in the world in one sitting. There is no other place in the world to experience such a dynamic, open, two-way dialog with a diverse merchant group.

Our goal is to continue to provide you, our sponsors, with more opportunities to gain exposure to the MAG membership and to provide all sponsors with at least one opportunity to gain additional exposure each year.

“As a long time member of the MAG, I can share that it has really evolved over time, and has never been stronger or more relevant. This is a truly unique merchant based organization focused on the payments space, bringing together marquee names in the merchant space with the many other constituents in the payment ecosystem. This is a terrific collaborative environment, where truly substantive learning, sharing and critical discussion takes place in a well structured, open setting. In this day and age, merchants are by definition, highly vested in payments, and this is a critical venue to connect to peers and industry participants.”
