The economic and financial potential of the cannabis industry is no longer a secret. Legal cannabis sales reached $6.7 billion in 2016, and experts predict that number may triple now that California has voted to legalize recreational use. Consequently, there are more and more cannabis companies launching each day, and for investors, it can be difficult to find the right option. Fortunately, the MJAC 2017: Investorhub International Cannabis Conference, which will be held on Sept. 1-2, 2017, will provide investors and entrepreneurs a valuable opportunity to network and educate themselves on the industry and the key players in it.
Taking place at the JW Marriot Live in Los Angeles, California, this premier two-day event will feature more than 50 companies. The conference will highlight the burgeoning industry’s very best investment options and educate attendees on this fast-moving sector. In addition, the conference will answer questions about the latest amendments and state laws around the country and, most importantly, tell investors how to invest their money strategically in these rapidly changing landscapes.
Here are some details about what conference attendees can expect:
- 50 plus cannabis industry exhibitors
- High caliber guest speakers
- Industry expert panels – answering questions and voicing their opinions on the current state and potential future of the industry
- Educational workshops
- Exhibitors and experts from the hemp, CBD and wellness sphere
