honoring a legacy

Celebrating What Comes Next

Every year at the World Series of Success, we strive to celebrate you and your accomplishments from the previous year while setting the stage for more groundbreaking achievements. In 2025, we're adding another layer of celebration: honoring a momentous 20-year legacy of empowering advisors like you.

For 20 years, we've been at the forefront of the financial advisory world, pioneering change and setting new standards — and we couldn't have done any of it without you. This event is a tribute to the moments that have defined our community, a celebration of all we have accomplished together and a rallying cry to continue pursuing excellence and innovation.

We're ready, are you?

History of the

World Series of Success

Every year, the World Series of Success brings AE advisors together to celebrate last year's wins, share new ideas and recharge for the year ahead.

The goal: To give financial professionals the tools and encouragement they need to help more clients enjoy a confident retirement.

Formerly known as The World Series of Sales, this annual extravagaanza celebrates the training and marketing success of professionals in insurance and financial services. Launched to help advisors kick off the new year inspired and energized, The World Series of Success gives AE advisors the boost they need to face whatever challenges the year might – and make the coming your their best ever.

WSOS has historically featured big-name speakers (Michael Phelps, George W. Bush, Shaquille O'Neal) to provide leadership insights and ideas that advisors can implement in their businesses. Each year, the event has featured a stirring theme (Stronger Together, Dream Big, Buckle Up, Iconic), an exciting location (Washington, D.C., San Diego, Las Vegas) and a worthy charitable organization to support.

One thing that has never changed: The World Series of Success aims to celebrate our advisors, support them in their quest to become better business owners, and enhance the growth and development of the industry.
