I wasn't sure what to expect since this was my first summit. All the speakers and content were amazing and perfectly situated to what is going on in the industry. I was also able to connect with so many people in a non-sales environment. Everyone's goal was to learn and network and that came across from vendors to competitors.

CEMA is unique is that it is a non-selling environment, perfect for relationship building and learning. Also, the fact that most attendees are seasoned event professionals, is helpful.

I learned some new things from the breakout sessions, I met people in the industry who do similar work and had good facetime with some of our vendors.

“CEMA is an amazing group of people. I love the fact that there are so many of my industry colleagues at CEMA Summit and that it’s not a majority of vendors. I believe that CEMA is one of the best event marketing associations out there and the best and brightest event marketers attend this event. Content and networking are excellent!”
