The Communications Marketing Association (CMA) is an organization of the leading manufacturers, manufacturer's representatives and distributors in the wireless communications industry. CMA’s core value is found in the unique annual Communications Marketing Association Conference (CMC), which has been a must-attend event for more than 40 years. What makes CMC exceptional is found in its design, which is not found in any other industry. Manufacturers, reps and distributors meet for three purposes: training, education and networking. Away from the distractions of a trade show and without the expense of individual meetings, attendees report that the CMC is efficient and has a long-lasting, positive effect on their sales. Manufacturers do not have to hold training in venues across the country, they can meet with all of the reps and distributors at the same time. Manufacturers reps and distributors can hold strategic planning sessions and product training with all of their lines at one time, in one place. CMC saves all participants time and money. And those benefits of CMC don’t even include the always on target keynote speakers and additional educational sessions, which are open to all and included with registration. Leaders in wireless know that CMC is a must-attend event.
CMC attendance also automatically grants year-round membership in CMA, with access to an exclusive database of manufacturers, reps and distributors.

CMC 2015 in Tampa, Florida was well attended, with dozens of manufacturers, all of the major wireless distributors and manufacturer’s rep firms. Because training is at the heart of every CMA Conference, our keynote speaker, noted IT expert John Strika, and his talk on “IP Networking Basics for the RF Professional” was a highlight. Like every CMC, manufacturers used the Tampa event to do product training with existing manufacturer rep firms and distributors, find new representation and share long-range plans with their channel partners. For new manufacturers, Tampa was the opportunity to jump start their sales by interviewing representatives and distributors and networking with other manufacturers to learn how to most effectively enter the market. The awards banquet is the perfect time to recognize sales and service excellence. With ample opportunities to spend time with peers, new partnerships and collaborations were created for long range and lasting results. CMC is the time to take your company from plans to action – are you ready?
