Seven years ago CMX introduced the world to the first ever CMX Summit. It was at that time our founder David Spinks, stood in front of a crowd of community visionaries, smiled, and announced the arrival of the community industry (see his smile here).
His promise of inspiration, new perspectives, and community values continue to be at the heart of our annual conference, the much-beloved CMX Summit. Fast forward to 2021 and the community conversation has gone from idea to leading business advantage!
This year’s theme for CMX Summit is Rise. This is a pivotal time for the community industry. Amid massive changes resulting from the pandemic, it is more critical than ever before for businesses to build communities of customers, employees, and partners.
For some of you, this will be the first CMX Summit you attend! So here are some tips for attending the biggest CMX Summit ever. Let’s get you ready for CMX Summit 2021: Rise.
