SponsorshipX Whistler: The mountain is calling.

For more than 15 years, SponsorshipX has pushed the boundaries of conference experiences, conventional networking and professional development to create a global community of marketers influencing the next decade of sponsorship marketing.



At SponsorshipX Whistler, you’ll have the unique opportunity to be revitalized and reenergized by a spectacular natural environment, while connecting with colleagues and new connects IRL.




What will you get up to? Here’s a glimpse:

Blue-Sky Sessions

This is where we ask: what if? These sessions encourage big, blue sky thinking in a rapid-fire format. Like a quick hit of intellectual adrenalin, you’ll leave feeling energized by new thinking with your mind open and receptive to the many possibilities that exist. There is no limit when anything is possible.

Tête-à-Tête Peak 2 Peak

Imagine being suspended half a kilometre in the sky between two mountains…and that’s the least interesting thing happening. Our Peak 2 Peak Gondola sessions are small group conversations where participants share stories of their greatest trials, tribulations, and triumphs. The only thing more inspiring than the stories you’ll hear is the views you’ll see.

Show, not Tell Sessions

Be immersed in what some of the most innovative brands in the world are working on through in-depth activations. Through private tours and discussions with the brand ambassadors from the Crankworx festival and the retail locations in Whistler, you’ll learn insights and hear about the process first-hand from those who are living it every day.

Movers, Shakers, and Changemakers 

This is brainstorming on a whole different level. Experience what happens when the best and brightest minds get in a room together to tackle important issues together. By bringing solutions-first thinking to some of the biggest and most pressing issues our industry and our world face today, the possibilities for change are endless through the power of collaboration.


Lace up your hiking boots, roll out your yoga mat, and exchange ideas around the fire after dark—this is how we network, through connection and shared experiences. By creating opportunities for our participants to go beyond the typical surface-level interactions, we build the foundation for stronger and more meaningful relationships that last well beyond the conference schedule. 

Red Bull Joyride

The grand finale to a weekend of inspiration—get VIP access to watch some of the top slopestyle riders in the world thrown down at the 10th-anniversary event. The Red Bull Joyride is the biggest stage in mountain biking. Buckle up—it’s going to get wild.
