How CMX built a thriving community.

CMX is the largest organization for community professionals, and the host of CMX Summit, an annual conference for the community industry. When the coronavirus hit, CMX used Bevy’s Virtual Conference and Community to take its flagship conference virtual without losing any engagement— and increased its attendance fivefold.

Our Challenge

A global pandemic

In 2020, community was in the spotlight as the world shifted to virtual. CMX needed to take its flagship conference all-virtual for the first time ever, while still inspiring and uplifting community professionals from all its chapters.

The Solution

Bevy Virtual Conference

Using Bevy’s virtual conference platform, CMX was able to seamlessly integrate CMX Summit and Bevy Community to drive RSVPs, capture attendee data, and grow its community after the conference. CMX Summit 2020 went far beyond a typical virtual conference to incorporate activities and events that captured the energy of its annual event.

We looked at and experimented with a lot of virtual conference platforms, but none of them had the features our community needed. The Bevy Virtual Product team was able to get as close as possible to recreating the in-person experience and ended up driving even more value and growth than we've seen with our in-person events.
