we engage with your community in innovative and strategic ways

who we​ are


Innovatis Group is an Association Management Company that creates, manages and engages communities. In simple terms: we bring people together. Whether it’s a customer group, user group or society, we get your audience excited and engaged with your product or service.

The way we create and foster that engagement is what makes us unique. We listen to the needs of your company or association and create custom solutions that meet your goals. For some, that’s an entire infrastructure of management. For others, that’s a tailored experience for your elite customers.

The key to our success is our agility. We’re nimble, which means we can track your audience’s engagement and interest in real-time and adjust accordingly. This allows us to be one step ahead with new ideas and innovation, nurturing your community members into community advocates.
