Cannabis Marketing Association is proud to present the second annual Future of Cannabis Marketing — a forward-thinking, half-day virtual Ted-style event, January 18, 2022.


As the end of Prohibition rapidly nears, we have the opportunity to build a new industry that communicates authentically to consumers and patients and is mindful of the relationships between government, industry, and the people.

It all boils down to this:

What is the cannabis future that we want?

What do cannabis marketing leaders need to do now to shape that future and why?


In order to build the industry we want, we must visualize and conceptualize it in advance. Often big ideas require forward-thinking and debate before they are ready for public presentation and acceptance.The Future of Cannabis Marketing will present these ideas to the industry to open up dialogue amongst the industry’s communications leaders so we can put change into action.

Members receive 15% off tickets via your unique access code which is the same as your username to the Member Portal. We will email you these as a reminder.


The Future of Cannabis Marketing may cover topics like branding, retail, and agency. Speakers will be selected by the CMA Member-led Host Committee.

Winning presentations are considered based on their originality, relevance to the event description, and importance to the industry.

Each session is approximately 20 minutes with 10 minutes for live Q&A.
