CMA-E Summit
April 17 - 19, 2018
Sarlat, France

The Critical Messaging Association of Europe (CMA-E) is the industry association for companies that are dedicated to the wireless delivery of time-sensitive, critical messages in Europe. Our members consist of network operators, manufacturers and others that combine to deliver reliable, point-to-multi-point simulcast technology and integrated messaging solutions for critical and non-critical communications. Our mission is to advance the industry to ensure world-wide growth by:

  • Providing a forum for industry participants to exchange ideas, technology, and explore new business opportunities
  • Advocating for favorable regulatory policies;
  • Developing, promoting, and administering technology-related standards; and
  • Creating a unified global voice for the critical messaging industry.

The CMA-E was originally the European Mobile Messaging Association (EMMA). In October 2012 we formed an alliance with the US based Critical Messaging Association so that we could work together to promote our ideals throughout the world.

CMA-E welcomes anyone involved in the critical messaging industry in Europe or Asia to join.
The 2017 CMA Summit was held in the beautiful and cultural town of Sedona. As normal the summit provided excellent opportunities to network and confirmed that innovation within the industry is happening world-wide. From new products to new services such as satellite paging and digital alerting, the critical messaging industry continues to utilize its rich history to provide the most reliable critical messaging platforms. 
In order to improve on the location chosen by our American colleagues we Europeans will be holding the next CMAE conference in the wonderful town of Sarlat La Canéda, the home of TPL Systèmes during 17 to 19 April 2018.  Sarlat is a beautiful town that dates back to the ninth century. It is the capital of the Perigord Noir, situated in the heart of a forested area close to the Dordogne valley in the southwest of France.  The worldwide reputation of Sarlat is linked its food and its rich history from the Middle Ages onwards.  It is classified as a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire (Artistic and Historic Town), which is testament to its high architectural quality. Its medieval lanes and its large, sunny squares, create a very pleasant atmosphere. Cinema producers have found the authentic surroundings a perfect backdrop for historic films. Sarlat has been awarded the exceptional three star classification by the Michelin Guide, making it equal to Europe’s most beautiful cities. The region is both beautiful and very historic with many medieval chateaux in the region. 

Indeed we will be staying in one of the best of these medieval chateaux; the Domaine de Monrecour about 15 minutes from the conference location.

The conference will be outstanding for its location and exceptional for its content.

Please do your best to attend and contribute to the conference.  Further details will be announced soon but for now, please reserve the dates off 17 to 19 April 2018. 

Registrations will begin in January 2018.
