One of the guiding principles of FMS is to curate the audience so anyone in the industry can actually do business with 9 out 10 people they meet.
New affiliates, traffic partners, veteran financial copywriters, publishing partners, financial media buyers, trading course creators – everyone who comes to FMS is in the industry and is here to do business with other people in the industry.
FMS is the biggest community & platform where financial publishers, marketers, and trader educators come together to share what’s working to build their businesses now.
They were sitting at the bar after the day’s presentations were over. He sold financial traffic. She bought traffic to sell investment newsletters. They were cutting a deal with the potential to transform both their businesses in the next 12-months. And it was just the first day of the Financial Marketing Summit.
Another publisher pulled me aside to tell me, “I just wanted to thank you because just one of the introductions you made for me last year made me an extra $500,000.” Not twenty minutes later someone else came up to thank me for hosting the Summit because, “Every time I come to the Financial Marketing Summit my life changes for the better.”
“I’ve been coming to conferences in the financial industry for 20-years… what I love about FMS is they built this situation that you can do business with as soon as you walk out the door.” – Jeanette Simms
“All of our customers and publishers are here.” – Tim Bourquin, founder After Offers
That’s the most common statement we get about FMS. It’s always some version of “I do more business deals in these two days than the rest of the year.”
My name is John Newtson and I’ve been hosting FMS for almost a decade now.
It’s important to me that everyone who comes to FMS gets plugged into all the people they could possibly want to do business with
That’s why when I’m not on stage I’m in the back of the room or in the financial media hall talking to everyone and helping them connect.
I will probably introduce myself, but if I miss you, please find me! I’d love to find out who you want to connect with, what information or opportunities can most help your business, and I will do my best to connect you around the community in the room.
I’ve also worked with all of our sponsors to make sures you have multiple networking opportunities that make introducing yourself to new people easier.
We start the networking and catch up with old friends and colleagues the night before the event. That way you’re networking is productive from the time your settled into your room at One Ocean Resort & Spa.
We kick off each morning with a networking breakfast. You’ll find the FMS community is super-friendly and deal oriented. Everyone is interested in what kind of business you can do together – and are willing to introduce you to people you should know.
Don’t worry! You can email support to adjust attendees at any time – up to the day of the event. We’re flexible and know that things can change so you’re never locked in.
FMS is built to help you do that. First off, the FMS community is super-welcoming and you’ll likely have several offers to introduce you around starting the first night. Plus, our founder, John Newtson is constantly walking around the event, the sponsorship halls, and networking events introducing people who you should know. If you don’t see him, feel free to ask any event staff for an introduction. John will make sure you get all the connections possible while you’re at FMS.
Easy. John will connect you. Even better, FMS has a strict “no green room” policy. We don’t segregate the speakers into a secret VIP room. You’ll find most of the speakers in the audience taking notes when they are not on stage because at FMS we bring top industry pros to speak. Our audience is full of marketers and entrepreneurs who are “gurus to the gurus” at marketing conferences outside the industry. FinPub is the top echelon of digital marketing and this is where everyone comes to connect with their peers.
Of course, not a problem at all. Things come up. Just email support and we’ll be happy to take care of you.
We’re finalizing this and will post it & email it to attendees as soon as it’s ready. There are often last-minute changes but we try to make sure it’s up-to-date.
There is a networking breakfast each full day of the event.
After nearly a decade of running this event we’ve found people prefer to break out and go to lunch in small groups with people they are doing business with. So lunches are on your own but we are happing to help you find a group to go to lunch with each day.
There are two cocktail hours – the Welcome Networking Party the night before the first day & the Networking Cocktail immediately following the program on the first day of the event.
Awesome! We have a few companies every year bringing large groups. You can email john [at] financialmarketingsummit.com to get info on registering your larger group.

FMS is built on the “Greek Mother Networking” model. I was raised by a Greek mom straight from the village. When anyone came to our home she would push food on them. Her top priority was taking care of guests and making sure they got anything they wanted.
When you’re at the conference you’re at our home. And we’re going to make sure you have anything you need.
Our goal is to feed you everything you need to make 2024 one of the best years your business has every had: introductions, information, insights, new contacts, friends, and colleagues.
You’ll find my kids working with the event with me. I live in the Washington D.C. metro area.
The average annual cost to raise a kid here is estimated to be $28,785 PER YEAR.
Or $518,130 by the time they reach 18.
And I have three. We’re looking at $1.5 million.
Is it any wonder I’m putting them to work? Last year my oldest two killed it working the registration desk at another event I held. Now they’re graduating to the big leagues – FMS – and they’re bringing their little brother along to help.
Don’t be afraid to make them work!
But really, at any time during the event if you need something. Just ask. We got you.
The Financial Marketing Summit brings together the investment newsletter & trader education industries to talk media, marketing, and business growth. It’s been the #1 conference for the financial publishing industry since 2014.
