Who’s going to deliver the keynote address at NCIA’s 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California? Last year, it was James Cole, a former deputy attorney general who thinks that the federal government should treat cannabis as a medical pharmaceutical substance. The year before it was Vicente Fox; a former president of Mexico who set the tone at the 2017 conference with an insightful talk on the social injustices created by the war on drugs and the positive effects of global cannabis legalization.
This year’s event – the nation’s most influential, award-winning cannabis conference and trade show – promises to be no different. Expect a few headliners among the 10,000+ cannabis industry leaders and 150+ speakers and thought leaders slated to make an appearance. Come network with the best and brightest in cannabis. Registration for the event and hotel reservations can be made at http://cnw.fm/o6nxI.
The conference is being hosted by the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), the largest cannabis trade association in the U.S. and the only organization representing state-sanctioned cannabis-related businesses at the federal level. Working on behalf of nearly 2,000 member-businesses and tens of thousands of cannabis professionals, NCIA is leading the charge to protect legal cannabis businesses, defend state laws and advance federal policy reforms.
Starting on Monday, July 22, when the pre-conference workshops and off-site tours take place, attendees can look forward to three days of engagement and interactive programs. On July 23-24, the conference and expo proper get going. Attendees will be hard-pressed to choose from the five educational tracks, which include cultivation; processing, distribution and retail; business services; licensing, regulations and compliance; and advocacy and community. Selecting exhibits to visit may be just as difficult. Over 120,000 square feet are being devoted to the expo floor.
Apart from its undoubted educational value, NCIA’s 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo offers unparalleled opportunity to initiate and build business relationships by networking with innovators and leaders in the cannabis space. As Joe Black, president of EZTRIM, noted when discussing a prior NCIA event, “There’s a lot of business to business networking going on — we’re introduced to other business that through other means of advertising and marketing we are not reaching.”
“The quality of attendees that show up to events like this are far ahead of most of the other industry trade shows that we go to. It’s a great organization to work with. It’s professional. We enjoy it very much,” added Shelly Peterson, vice president of urban-gro, which provides agricultural services to cultivators.
These comments were echoed by Chris Wrenn, VP of Americas sales at AEssens, which offers commercial hydroponic systems.
