Banking Awards Sponsors

The Best Community Bank Executives in the Nation are Looking for You

Will they find you, or a competitor, when they come to Minneapolis this September?


The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™ invites you to join us in Minneapolis, MN, September 12, 2017 for our Extraordinary Banking Awards and Community Banking Super Conference – the only events focused on delivering the best growth practices of the nation’s top-performing community banks.

There is no industry conference that matches the caliber, content or value available in 3 days. No boring speakers or subjects at this event: everything is staged to educate, motivate and equip community bank executives to make 2017 their best ever year and continue to grow their banks.

Partnering with the Community Banking Super Conference extends the opportunity for your company to connect with–and sell to–a targeted audience of over 200 community bank executives who are willing to invest their time and money to discover how to grow their banks.

What is the Institute for Extraordinary Banking?

The Institute for Extraordinary Banking is the only independent advocate for the community banking industry. Founded by banking thought leader Roxanne Emmerich, and backed by a who’s who of modern American business leaders, the Institute exists to promote the importance of community banks to our nation, our economy and our communities. Each year, the Institute recognizes community banks that meet strict performance standards by awarding them a Banky® Award. 5 recipients are chosen as leaders in each of 5 categories and 1 bank each year is named The Extraordinary Bank of the Year, for exemplary performance in all 5 categories.

What Is the Community Banking Super Conference?

Over 200 executives of the most successful, fastest-growing community banks in the country will fly to Chicago to invest 3 days into learning how to become better marketers, grow their banks, acquire more clients and substantially increase their bottom line. These decision makers will have paid up to $2,495 to be there and are highly motivated to increase sales. Unlike other banking conferences where all of the speakers are “technicians,” this conference features only business growth topics focused on helping community banks increase their business success.

Who Should Sponsor This Event?

  • Sponsors and vendors who want to get in front of MORE attendees! Last year’s event SOLD OUT and this year we anticipate 200 to 250 attendees; and that’s a REAL number, not made up of other sponsors, staff and other “non-prospects.”
  • Companies who want to engage with BETTER quality community banks and bank executives who KNOW how to grow. Unlike the vast majority of whiners and complainers, our attendees actually have invested a lot of time and effort into growing their banks.
  • Sponsors who want to participate in an event with fewer sponsors to compete with. We won’t have you stuffed into a sponsor hall with 100 other competitors. You’ll get front and center access to attendees.
