The Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (“CWCBExpo”) event is set to be held at New York City’s Javits Convention Center, Hall 3A between 4-6 November 2021. Set to be held during Cannabis Week, a weeklong event taking place between Monday November 1 – Sunday November 7, the CWCBExpo is a business-to-business trade show event dedicated to the legalized cannabis industry.
The CWCBExpo has rapidly earnt a reputation as a leading forum for dispensary owners, growers, suppliers, investors, medical professionals, government regulators, legal counsel, and entrepreneurs looking to achieve business success and identify new areas of growth in this dynamic and fast-growing industry. Following a big 2020, during which cannabis sales increased by 48 percent, or $6.9 billion, the highest dollar increase in U.S. industry history, 2021 has thus far benefitted from strong sales momentum across a number of states. Mature markets such as Colorado, Oregon and Washington state have averaged 26% year-over-year growth over the first half of this year; meanwhile, states which have recently decriminalized cannabis usage, such as Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan and Pennsylvania are witnessing sales growth of upwards of 136% – albeit, from a low base (https://cnw.fm/6wDaC).
With seven states set to potentially pursue legislation in the coming years which will legalize the recreational use of cannabis – including the likes of Ohio, Missouri, South Dakota, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Maryland and Arkansas, the upcoming CWCBExpo will seek to harness on the recent growth trends through a series of presentations, keynote addresses and case studies spanning a wide array of topics. The conference will be segmented into three daily themes – covering ‘Where We Are Today’, ‘Challenges & Solutions’ and ‘What’s Next?’, respectively. Topics which will be covered include:
- Industry Update: Data, Highlights, Trends and Opportunities
- New York: From Illicit into the Light
- International Cannabis: Delivering the Infrastructure to Enable Worldwide Markets
- Opportunities at the Intersection of Hemp and Marijuana
A full list of the presentation topics to be covered over the three-day event can be found at: https://s23.a2zinc.net/clients/leexpos/cwcbexpony2021/Public/Sessions.aspx?View=Sessions_summary&ID=723
In addition to the conference’s wide array of expert speakers and industry thought leaders, the summit will also play host to hundreds of exhibitors set to feature some of the industry’s latest innovations, products, and services. Attendees will also be able to participate in an industry networking event, “Back-to-Business Celebration”, which will be held immediately post the first day of the CWCBExpo, wherein conference delegates will be able to network and further their interactions with their fellow peers.
