For a crash course in everything the cannabis industry has to offer, the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo in Los Angeles is the place to be this September.
The legal cannabis industry is booming, bringing a wave of entrepreneurs, businesses, growers and legislators looking to network, expand their own businesses and keep up with an ever-increasing legal cannabis industry landscape.
That’s where Cannabis Week comes in.
Anchored by the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBExpo), one of the leading business-to-business trade events for the legal cannabis industry, Cannabis Week provides opportunities for business success and helps to identify new areas of growth within the legal industry.
Over 100 exhibitors and 3,000 attendees are expected at the sixth Annual LA CWCBExpo event, running from Sept. 26-28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Network with fellow business visionaries and innovators from all segments of the legal cannabis market, from accounting and bookkeeping companies to delivery services, manufacturers to private equity firms and regulatory enforcement agencies to smoke and headshops.
The CWCBExpo also features workshops like Build, Grow and Expand Your Cannabis Business, Cannabis Investment 101 and Cannabis, Hemp and CBD Retail Outlets: A Vision for the Future.
Steve White, CEO of Harvest Health and Recreation will be discussing Doing Well by Doing Good: Bringing Restorative Justice to the Cannabis Industry.
Be inspired by Chuck Smith, President and CEO, Dixie Brands, Inc., talking about their unprecedented strategic partnership with AriZona and A Giant Leap Toward Normalization.
For the first time speaking at an industry event, in conversation with Irwin D. Simon, CEO, Aphria Inc. shares his thoughts on product, operations and corporate culture transformation.
Additional keynote presentations and talks from cannabis industry executives include Claire Kaufmann, director of client services for Brightfield Group, and Chuck Smith, the president and CEO of Dixie Brands, and seminars on investing in the industry, CBD research and business and laws of cannabis.
Past speakers include Montell Williams, an outspoken advocate for the legal cannabis industry, still speak fondly about their time at past Cannabis World Congress & Business Expos.
“I’m grateful to have spoken at the CWCBExpo,” said Williams. “It’s critically important that those of us on the activism and industry sides of the cannabis movement come together frequently and ask ourselves tough questions about where we’ve been and where we’re going.”
You will also have the opportunity to rub elbows with like-minded folks during the marketing events over the weekend, like at the industry party in the Grammy Museum on Sept. 27 and a networking mixer in South Hall K of the LA Convention Center.
