Explore the growing power of cannabis in an iconic setting – the world-famous Niagara Falls – as the Grow Up Conference and Expo returns to this magnificent location to shower thousands of participants with an opportunity to soak up the hottest topics and latest trends lighting up the cannabis community. Scheduled for September 12-14, 2019, at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Grow Up Conference and Expo is the premier event for longtime cannabis enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, established businesses and the curious.
More than 5,000 attendees are expected to arrive in Niagara Falls to learn, network and take a deep dive into the topics that interest them most, and there is plenty to choose from under the Grow Up Conference and Expo umbrella. Over 130 world-class speakers, daily informative panel discussions and sessions will provide the most up-to-date news about the global cannabis industry and the future of cannabis as its legal status continues to evolve. Industry panels and sessions, product demonstrations, a mentor’s hub, an international pavilion and an expo networking lounge will keep participants energized from morning to night.
Featured speakers include Arjan Roskam, founder of Green House Coffee Shops & Seed Company; Bruce Linton, former CEO and chairman of Canopy Growth Corporation; Cam Battley, CCO of Aurora Cannabis Inc.; and Anat Baron, futurist, tech entrepreneur and former head of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, among many others. Sharing the spotlight will be licensed producers, head growers, extractors, purchasing agents, distributors, suppliers and manufacturers who are encouraged to mingle, meet-up and connect with conference participants.
An exclusive investor’s breakfast will offer startup enterprises the chance to have a more intimate conversation with potential investors and possible equity partners. This ticketed session aims to provide market analysts with a chance to make sense of a year in which raised capital doubled to more than $3.2 billion, while merger-and-acquisition deals almost tripled. For those who want a peek at the future of cannabis, this event features experts with answers to some of the biggest questions facing the industry.
A ‘Beyond the Grass Ceiling: Cannabis Without Limits’ breakfast is also on the docket as a ticketed event designed for inspirational women entrepreneurs to share success stories and challenge their peers to forge new relationships with other women in the cannabis space. For those who want to really get their hands dirty by learning how to grow high quality cannabis (legally), there’s the extensive grow-at-home one-day ticketed workshop, which will cover everything from seed selection to storing the final product.
Attendees can also look forward to the First Annual Grow Up Awards Gala, set to take place at the Greg Frewin Theater on September 12. Hosted by comedian and Cash Cab presenter Adam Growe and featuring a magical performance by International Grand Champion of Magic Greg Frewin, this special ceremony will recognize and celebrate leading cannabis growers and suppliers.
