The team at The Daily Marijuana Observer loves to get out and meet the cannabis community that is growing all over the world. As more and more people join the industry and the legalization wave spreads further across the world, it's important to stay in touch with new developments and new players in the space. One great way to do that is by attending cannabis industry conferences and events.
They're happening all the time, and they're happening all over the world. For example, the CannaTech 2017 Conference just finished in Tel Aviv, Israel and later this month there's a whole handful of conferences happening everywhere from Toronto to Texas.
While I can't personally make it to all of them, The Daily Marijuana Observer is substantially increasing our event attendance, and at least one team member will be making it to each one. In fact, there's 5 conferences all happening on the same weekend! Below is a list (in no particular order) of 6 upcoming cannabis industry events that we're excited to attend.
The CannMed 2017 Personalized Cannabinoid Medicine Conference will be held from April 9th-11th at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. Select speakers at the event include Medical Director Bonni Goldstein, MD of Canna-Centers in California and more. This event will be a great opportunity to learn about the rising trends in cannabinoid based treatments as well as network with industry leaders from all over the world.
The O'Cannabiz conference will be held from April 21st-23rd at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in Toronto, Canada. With handfuls of publicly traded cannabis companies set to attend, we'll be taking this opportunity to meet some of the executives behind the marijuana stocks we know and love.
World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo
The 2017 World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo will be held from April 21st-22nd at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With special guests set to attend such as ex-NFL player Ricky Williams, this event will be an excellent opportunity to network and learn more about medicinal marijuana.
High Times Cannabis Cup
The 2017 So-Cal High Times Cannabis Cup will be held from April 21st-23rd at the National Orange Show in San Bernadino, California. There's a whole list of celebrities and artists set to attend and perform at Cannabis Cup as well as educational events on cannabis cultivation and more.
New England Cannabis Convention
We'll be making two trips to Boston this month, as the New England Cannabis Convention will be held from April 22nd-23rd at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Since recreational marijuana was just legalized in Massachusetts and Maine, the Northeast is ramping up to be the next frontier for the cannabis industry. With both local and national companies set to attend, this convention will be worthwhile for anyone looking to break into New England's up and coming marijuana industry.
Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo
The 2nd Annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo will be held from April 21st-23rd at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas. One of the most exciting things going down at SWCC is the Pro Athletes Pro Cannabis event held on the 21st. With a long list of ex-NFL players set to attend, this conference will be a great opportunity to learn about the positive role cannabis can play in a pro athlete's life.
