With its 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo, the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), the largest cannabis trade association in the U.S. and the only organization broadly representing state-sanctioned cannabis-related businesses at the federal level, is once again offering a unique opportunity to intermingle with industry innovators and influencers. Set to run from Monday, July 22, to Wednesday, July 24, at the San Jose Convention Center, the event will feature presentations by 150+ influential figures. Over 10,000 attendees are expected. They will be served an informative fare that includes updates on current developments in the space, as well as insightful projections regarding the forces that may shape the industry in the future.
On the rostrum this year will be Michael Cooper, co-founder and managing member of MadisonJay Solutions, considered the leading consultant on regulations in the adult-use cannabis sector. He will be joined by Lisa Hansen, vice president of Plaid Marketing, a company out to democratize financial services through digital technology. Also scheduled to speak is Shanita Penny, president of Minority Cannabis Business Association, a non-profit business league created to serve the needs of minority cannabis entrepreneurs, workers, patients and consumers. Speakers at previous Cannabis Business Summits have included James Cole, a former deputy U.S. attorney general and Vicente Fox, president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006.
The NCIA was founded to protect legal cannabis businesses, defend state laws and advance federal policy reform. Today, the organization represents nearly 2,000 member-businesses and tens of thousands of cannabis professionals. The 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo is scheduled to begin with workshops and off-site tours. It will continue over the following days, treating participants to a series of addresses and interactive programs. Attendees can choose from five educational tracks that include cultivation; processing, distribution and retail; business services; licensing, regulations and compliance; and advocacy and community. They will have the opportunity to visit the booths of over 400 companies exhibiting on an expo floor that will cover some 120,000 square feet.
Additionally, NCIA’s 6th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo will offer rare networking opportunities and chances to connect with decision makers and industry executives that other marketing channels may be bypassing. Can you afford not to be there?
