Learn and engage with creators in their marketing efforts.
Some important topics from this year’s Summit will focus on safe and effective cannabis marketing in a harshly regulated landscape. With the fragmentation of markets and lack of cannabis marketing resources, Cannabis Marketing Summit will help attendees explore the work of their colleagues.
Some of the Summit’s speakers are devoting their time to increase mobile traffic, both online and in-store. Social media and the digital world have taken many industries by storm. Marketing for cannabis can be difficult across many platforms. Guest speakers will give you the resources to utilize many different types of platforms and navigate the challenges associated with cannabis marketing.
Learn to create and lead creative teams.
The Cannabis Marketing Summit wants to create leaders with the intent to push the future of cannabis marketing forward. The last year has been turbulent. There was rapid social, economic, and political change. The instant changes that continued to change over the course of the year pushed many to construct creative solutions to problems.
The Summit will help engage attendees in utilizing more creative outlets for marketing. Not to mention, attendees can learn to build more creative teams. These teams will help deal with the continued changes in cannabis marketing. The information provided by panelists could help marketing teams achieve smaller goals or tackle larger world problems.
Learn how to advocate for a more inclusive industry.
Cannabis Marketing Association is devoted to increasing awareness to, and helping create social equity in the cannabis industry and intends to highlight the work of BIPOC creators and marketers.
Panelists will discuss strategies anyone can use to ensure there are best practices in place when doing marketing outreach to remain authentic. Marketing resources are one of the first points of contact for most businesses. The panelists will help establish socially responsible marketing practices.
There is a free Pre-Summit training with CMA’s Social Equity Program Partner, Marijuana Matters. It is on Monday, June 7th at 12:00 pm MT and is a great way to begin thinking about the summit’s equity topics. The training hopes to increase awareness and understanding of social equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Enjoy the Summit.
The Summit works to create positive experiences for those within cannabis marketing. Our goals of connection, education, creativity, and advocacy are at the root of CMA’s cause.
