Cannabis Marketing Association (CMA) has announced the second annual virtual Cannabis Marketing Summit (CMS) held from June 8 to June 10 in partnership with MJBizDaily. The event has held last year in a similar virtual format and brought in participants from all over the country. This is the latest of cannabis-themed events recently announced.
Progressing Through Virtuality
The Cannabis Marketing Summit is the premier annual event for marketers and communications professionals in the cannabis industry. The second annual event promises to focus on education and best practices for industry marketers. As part of CMA’s mission, this event is aimed to bring a positive perception to an authentic understanding of cannabis and its consumers around the world. CMA does this by supporting the professional growth of cannabis communications professionals by providing industry education, cultivating community, and establishing best practices.
“Cannabis marketers have historically faced enormous challenges getting their brand message to the market,” said Lisa Buffo, Founder & CEO of Cannabis Marketing Association. “The pandemic brought rapid change that presented additional challenges, but also numerous exciting opportunities that changed the landscape for communications professionals. With legalization moving at a breakneck pace, the CMS is the quintessential time to review these developments and chart the path forward for cannabis marketers.”
CMS will evaluate the current state of cannabis marketing and teach the practical tools, tactics, and data that produce effective strategies and campaigns for cannabis brands across the country. Last year health officials forced the event to move online after the pandemic shut everything down. Hopefully, this is the last time the event goes virtual, as organizers originally intended this to be an in-person event.
