Growers invested in venturing into cannabis should mark their calendars for two events that each take place in November in Las Vegas, NV.
Marijuana Business Conference And Expo
The Marijuana Business Conference And Expo (Nov. 15-18 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino) features networking opportunities with 7,500 cannabis industry leaders, a massive expo hall with more than 300 exhibitors, three days of educational sessions, and insider-only breakfasts, roundtables, and parties.
• There are two pre-conference workshops: The “Marijuana Business Crash Course,” an intensive workshop with expert cannabusiness entrepreneurs that will get you up to speed so you can take full advantage of the conference; and the “MJBizCon Science Symposium,” which will focus on the most important technical aspects of the industry. Presented by cannabis researchers, topics at the symposium include cannabis compounds, clinical research, extraction, and testing. The presentations are designed to be relevant to growers, extractors, edibles and infused product makers, and other cannabis professionals.
• Keynote presentations that kick off each day of the conference will cover industry analysis and forecasting, and tools to optimize your cannabis workday.
• Additional educational sessions will address election implications, consumer insights, taxes and regulatory issues, new growing technology, pesticide concerns, and reducing energy use and lowering costs through sustainability.
