Leading Cannabis Business Event Announces Call For Presentations

CWCBExpo NY Seeking Experts In Dynamic and Hyper-Growth Industries

(Paramus, NJ, November 2016)—The Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) announces a Call for Presentations for its New York event, taking place June 14-16, 2017 at the Javits Center in New York City. Renowned for its comprehensive educational program, CWCBExpo NY is seeking experts and thought leaders who can share their unique insight on the trends, business practices, and technologies that are driving this fast-growing and disruptive industry.

The CWCBExpo conference program encompasses all aspects of the cannabis industry. Topics of particular interest include national and international outlooks for legalization and regulation; emerging sectors and markets within the cannabis industry; and new innovations and inventions that are expanding and evolving this dynamic market.

Subject matter experts in startup best practices; gender and racial diversity in the cannabis industry; edibles, infusions, and concentrates; medical access for veterans and other patients; raw plant processing; and investing and obtaining capital in the industry are encouraged to submit presentation proposals.

“There are so many moving pieces in being successful in the cannabis industry and the CWCBExpo education goal is to help provide a roadmap for anyone looking to enter the industry, expand their business, and remain competitive,” said Christine Ianuzzi, Show Director, CWCBExpo Events. “We look forward to presenting our attendees with the best speakers and actionable content for business success.”

In addition to the two-day conference program with more than 70 sessions, CWCBExpo NY (June 15-16) also offers Add-On Workshops (June 14) that provide all-day education on industry fundamentals and certification programs. Keynote speakers and thought-leadership panels will round out the learning program.

“I’ve presented at three CWCBExpo conferences so far and have made valuable professional connections at each one. I’ve consistently found CWCBExpo audiences to be passionate, engaged, and excited to learn. As a presenter, I appreciate that CWCBExpo takes high-quality content seriously, and expects speakers to provide concrete, useful information rather than simply a sales pitch,” added Amanda R. Conley, Partner, Brand & Branch LLP.

CWCBExpo NY will also have an expansive exhibit floor (June 15-16) with suppliers in the industry showcasing cutting-edge products and services to those in the business, entrepreneurs looking to enter the market, medical professionals and dispensary owners, investors, and providers of professional services.
