We have some big news! Our Cannabis Cultivation Conference is evolving by uniting cultivators with their industry counterparts: dispensaries. We’ve renamed the event “Cannabis Conference” to align the conference with our Cannabis Business Times and Cannabis Dispensary brands.

We are also moving the show to Las Vegas! After outgrowing our previous space, we surveyed attendees to learn which location would be most accessible for those around the country—and Vegas was the clear front-runner.

So mark your calendars for April 1-3, 2019! We’ll be at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

Cannabis Business Times, which was recently named “Magazine of the Year” by the American Society of Business Publication Editors, launched its first conference in 2017 in Oakland, Calif. Cannabis 2017 was the first of its kind, focusing exclusively on addressing cultivators’ needs—from legal and business challenges to a full-range of horticulture how-to—along with an expo of industry-leading technology and service providers. The event has quickly become the industry conference for serious cannabis cultivation professionals. It has united head growers, investors, business managers, operations directors, compliance specialists and entire grow teams. The unparalleled education program and community atmosphere of this professional event piqued the interest of so many in year one—and brought them back in increased numbers in year two—because attendees had the ability to ask questions in our interactive sessions, meet with and learn from other growers and business owners, as well as gain insights into the latest technologies and products.

Last year, our team launched Cannabis Dispensary magazine to serve the unique needs of cannabis dispensary owners and senior management, and the feedback we received from both cultivators and dispensaries was to bring these two audiences together at our community-focused, professional event that centers on exceptional education and an expo of top suppliers.

Cannabis Conference will unite the plant-touching businesses under one roof with four educational tracks: two for cultivation businesses, and two for dispensary businesses—all of which will address challenges and opportunities that will help the industry elevate and evolve. Cannabis Conference’s expo floor is also expanding to bring you even more products and companies to discover and to take the event’s networking opportunities to a new level.

Registration is now open, and in order to offer some of the best prices in the industry, we will be honoring last year’s event pricing until Aug. 31. Group rates are also available, so bring your whole team for the greatest benefit.

We thank you for being a valued reader of Cannabis Business Times and an essential component in making the Cannabis Conference the must-attend cannabis event for commercial cannabis cultivators.

See you in Vegas!
