The 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo begins in TEN DAYS! So we’re bringing you TEN reasons why you should make plans to join us:
- Your Registration Dollars are Put to Work
Most industry events are out to make a buck. But when you attend one of NCIA’s business events, the money you spend goes right back into advocacy for you, your business and the cannabis industry in general.
- Conference Sessions Featuring Known Industry Leaders
#CannaBizSummit brings in known names in the trade that are experts in their fields. Hear from those who have experienced the same issues as you and know how to deal with them. We spend weeks creating the highest quality agendas, with carefully curated speakers and industry hot topics so that you may walk away from our events with not only a refreshing take on the cannabis market but actionable tips and tricks for your business.
- SOLD OUT Expo Hall
NCIA events have the proven highest concentration of buyers and sellers of any other industry event, and exhibitors have been pre-qualified and are of the highest caliber. Network with your peers and explore the exhibit hall with more than 400+ exhibitors (all NCIA members) on our SOLD OUT expo floor!. Whether you’re looking for business solutions, extraction, distillation, or grow equipment – you’ll find it on the expo floor.
- Full Day Workshops
NCIA has gone above and beyond to create an inspiring three-day learning experience. Not only will you be able to hear from experts in a variety of fields during our core conference program, but you can enhance your experience with an intimate, classroom-like setting in one of our exclusive pre-conference workshops. Join us for Cannabis 101, Managing for Success, INCBA Regulatory Rounds, CannaVest Investor Forum or The HEMP Biz Conference.
- Full Day and Half Day Tours
#CannaBizSummit tours offer a fun, interactive experience and a first-hand look at some of the most prominent cannabis businesses in northern California. Tours include the Santa Cruz, East Bay and Legion of Bloom full day tours, as well as a morning and afternoon half day tour of San Jose. Register soon – some of our tours are close to selling out!
- Thought-Provoking Keynote Speakers
Don’t miss this lineup of heavy hitting industry pioneers as they take the stage to discuss everything from global expansion to athletics in these not-to-be missed opening sessions! We’ll be joined by Mike Lee, Executive Vice President & CFO from Canopy Growth Corporation, who will be sharing his unique outlook for the industry. Hear the Latest in Cannabis Research and The Impact on Athletes with Dr. Jefferey Chen, physician and researcher at The UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative. He’ll be joined by Anna Symonds (USA Rugby), Nate Jackson (NFL), Frank Shamrock (MMA, and Jim McAlpine (Creator of 420 Games) who will share their own experiences and benefits of using cannabis for recovery.
