The 6th annual CWCBExpo (Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition) in Los Angeles wrapped up with record attendance of leading business, retail, healthcare and financial professionals from around the country and even the world.
With California being one of the largest cannabis markets in the world, Los Angeles created the perfect backdrop for CWCBExpo, an event at the forefront of the business-to-business cannabis industry aimed at helping participants make meaningful connections and grow their businesses.
The must-attend expo began with a day-long, pre-conference workshop on Wednesday, September 25, focusing on cannabis business law in California and beyond, which included seven sessions offering key information about cannabis law. The conference then officially kicked off on Thursday, September 26, with Claire Kaufmann, director of client services of the Brightfield Group, providing an official industry update as she discussed changes in policy, market dynamics and projected industry growth.
Following the update, Harvest Health and Recreation CEO Steve White spoke to a packed crowd at his keynote address as he shared his high-level view on the broad social justice issues affecting the cannabis industry and how businesses can succeed by giving back.
For the next two days, more than 100 speakers presented during informative sessions that included vital industry information. Speakers included Chuck Smith, CEO of Dixie Brands, Iriwin Simon, CEO of Aphria Inc., along with recording artist Jim Jones of Saucey Farms & Extracts and many others. Topics ranged from cannabis retail strategy pivoting to the franchise model to using artificial intelligence to create solutions and build sustainable customer relationships. Four extensive workshops covered relevant subjects such as breaking into the cannabis industry, investing in the cannabis industry, the current legal and regulatory cannabis landscape across the country and cannabis business owners hoping to make it to the next level.
Participants also strolled through the sold-out exhibit floor, gleaning information from the more than 125 exhibitors about invaluable services available designed to support, help and sustain cannabis organizations. Multiple networking opportunities, both scheduled and spontaneous, provided key moments for conference goers to connect with a variety of industry professionals.
“We were particularly pleased with the excellent coverage and support provided by CannabisNewsWire,” said Fred Polsinelli, CEO of Polsinelli Public Affairs and CWCBExpo spokesman. “The CWCBExpo couldn’t have chosen a better news dissemination partner in our efforts to bring together the best-of-the best in cannabis along with those new to the burgeoning industry.
