In a 2020 study by CMX, 85% of organizations said that community had a positive impact on their objectives. To ensure community continues to deliver value for organizations, this year’s conference will feature topics that align with the following tracks:

  • The Rise of Community-Driven Business: The era of community-driven business is here. Community is a key competitive advantage and the future of successful brands. How can organizations leverage community to its fullest potential?
  • Charting the Community Path: Community is carving out its own distinct department and seat at the C-suite table. Learn how today’s community professionals are paving the road for tomorrow.
  • Community, Culture, and Innovation: Creator communities. Cryptocurrencies. Diversity, equity, and inclusion. Belonging. Get a front-row seat to see how community is driving innovation across business and culture.

“2020 was a pivotal year for community, with COVID-19 launching it into the mainstream as businesses sought connections with their customers and employees,” said David Spinks, Founder of CMX and VP of Community at Bevy. “CMX Summit 2021 will showcase what we’ve long believed — that community is the future of business, and companies should prepare for this future now.”
