CANA's Annual cremation innovation convention

The annual Cremation Innovation Convention highlights local innovation among cemeteries, crematories and funeral homes. After nearly 100 years of holding annual meetings devoted to cremation, CANA knows how to mount an event that is well worth the investment. Quality time spent with colleagues will invigorate your creativity, renew your drive, and give you a fresh perspective like nothing else. Join us this year in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, July 25-27, 2018.



Annual Cremation Symposium

Short, sweet, and packed with a marketing punch, the CANA Cremation Symposium in Las Vegas is known for its topicality and practical tips. Our 2017 Symposium was a big success, and education topics focused on the race to the top, rather than to the bottom. Forward thinking presentations covered community outreach, event planning, effective and targeted advertising, understanding demographics and planning relevant celebrations with families. Register today to join us for the 2018 Cremation Symposium, February 6-8 at the Paris Las Vegas.
