THE FIRST CONFERENCE TO FOCUS EXCLUSIVELY
ON THE GAME-CHANGING, DISRUPTIVE DEVELOPMENTS
IN TECHNOLOGY, INVESTMENT AND MEDIA WITHIN
THE CANNABIS SPACE.
OCTOBER 14 & 15, 2016
5 EMBARCADERO CENTER, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
BUSINESSLegal cannabis has an estimated $10 billion annual economic impact, and the sector is rapidly professionalizing. More than one thousand entrepreneurs and investors will gather to forecast trends in today’s fragmented regulatory landscape, where the arrival of mainstream capital is obliterating past models. The Summit looks at what’s next for non-profits, venture-backed startups, publicly traded companies and crowd-funding. Panelists of active, accredited investors and successful entrepreneurs cut through the hype.
TECHNOLOGYHigh technology guarantees the near future of cannabis looks nothing like the present. Get the complete picture of the next generation of consumer marijuana apps and business services disrupting and streamlining the space with business models akin to Uber, Grubhub, Snapchat, Salesforce.com, Yelp and others. Explore shifts in verticals such as extraction, cultivation, vaporizers, and POS, CMS, and auditing systems. Peak over the horizon and future-proof your business model.
MEDIAThe internet and the broader media is the single greatest force shaping the destiny of cannabis consumers and the companies selling to them. Meet the influencers and review the state of the art of cannabis communications, focusing on: social media, marketing, activism, modern branding, editorial trends, the entry of Fortune 500 brands into the space, and the normalization of cannabis.
