About this event

We can’t believe CMX Global Connect has already come and gone! Our first virtual conference was a success!

We would like to give a HUGE shout out again to the wonderful organizations who brought some fun to CMX Global Connect:

SnapFiesta for our epic photo wall (shown in the photo above!)

Top Hat Provisions for the awesome mixology class 

King Blotto the III for teaching us calligraphy

DJ Airsun for bumping some sweet beats to close the show. 

And a big ol’ thank you to Happily and Fresh AV for all their support behind the scenes!

The recordings from this event are now available for attendees. Subscribe to the CMX Weekly newsletter to be the first to know when the recordings are made public! 

This was a huge learning opportunity for the CMX team, and we want to share with you what we learned from this process, to help you host your own virtual events and conferences! How can we help you learn from our experiences, our successes and challenges? What do you want to know about our process? Here at CMX, we are big believers in not reinventing the wheel.

So, we’ve compiled our learnings into this blog post, in hopes it will help you plan your upcoming virtual events and conferences. Read Everything we Learned from Running a 2,800 Person Virtual Conference.


We are hosting the first ever CMX Global Connect. This event has the purpose to educate and connect our community during this time, and provide content with the particular focus on how to build community virtually and online.

See full agenda here!

The idea for CMX Global Connect was born during the Covid-19 crisis that swept the world. The community industry is constantly changing, and during the months of Covid-19, many community professionals pivoted their *entire* programs. The purpose of this virtual conference is to bring our global community together, online, to learn, grow, and, well... Connect.

This virtual event will include presentations, facilitated discussions, workshops, networking opportunities, real time platform demos, and other awesome virtual activities (like a whole breakout stage of just cute animal videos... I mean, why not, right?).

This is a free event. We don’t want to put up any barriers that might hinder our community from being able to attend. 

We will be recording every session, so our community members in non-permitting time zones will have access to the content. To view the recordings after the event, please RSVP. *Only those with RSVP to the event will receive the recordings.

The TL/DR:

  • Date: April 28, 2020
  • Location: From the comfort of your own home.. can't beat that ;)
  • Time: 8:00am - 2:00pm (US Pacific time)
  • Cost: FREE

Connect with attendees and speakers before April 28th in the CMX Slack Workspace and the #cmx-global channel!
