Cannabis Conference 2022 begins today in Las Vegas. It’s the sixth annual event produced by Cannabis Business Times, and this year’s educational and networking opportunities come at a critical time in the industry.
Backed by an award-winning magazine and a team of talented writers, editors and designers, Cannabis Conference is the only North American conference focused exclusively on plant-touching operators. The event is guided by an advisory board comprising cultivation and dispensary experts, and features more than 40 education sessions led by more than 90 industry experts. Cannabis Conference 2022 also includes a sold-out expo floor showcasing more than 170 technology and solutions providers that serve cannabis cultivation and dispensary businesses.
Registration opens at 8 a.m. PT today, Aug. 23. Starting at 10 a.m. PT, All-Access Pass registrants will gain special admission to pre-show workshops on a variety of topics, including new product trends, university research, business development and more.
Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris, legendary human rights activists, will provide the keynote address this afternoon. Their tireless work since the late 1980s has been instrumental in educating people around the world about the benefits of cannabis and hemp legalization—and they will share the story behind their reform efforts.
Tomorrow, Merida Capital Holdings Managing Partner Mitch Baruchowitz will provide the Day 2 keynote: “From Pioneering Founder to Foundational Investor: Mitch Baruchowitz Shares Crucial Strategies for Building a Successful and Long-Term Cannabis Company.” Merida has deployed more than $275 million, and has some $450 million in assets under management across the cannabis ecosystem.
Additional Cannabis Conference 2022 speakers include Chris Ball, Wendy Bronfein, Kim Eastman, Chima Enyia, Bob Groesbeck, Jesce Horton, Rezwan Khan, Claudio Miranda, Mojave Richmond, Anna Shreeve, Hope Wiseman and many more leaders from across the industry!
