Two Dynamic Ways to Attend Summit

CEMA Summit has always been a space for human connection and joy. This year will be no different. This July, we will come together as an unparalleled group of luminary minds to share insights, inspirations, and ideas, and engage together in Lighting the way to Live events. And this year, you can attend in-person OR we’re planning a meaningful digital experience.

We are excited to welcome you to the CEMA Summit Hybrid Experience. 2021 will be equally unchartered territory as we navigate ‘back’ to live events. You are among the inspired and courageous event pros that are forging the path for everyone on that journey whether you join in-person or on-line.
