The Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) returns to New York City next month for its sixth annual event and with it comes a number of new takes on the fast-growing legal cannabis industry. The “Technology Pavilion” is one of these new offerings; its inclusion in the 2019 floor plan goes to show that CWCBExpo is both forward-thinking and wants attendees to be well-positioned for their respective futures. The expo, which will be at Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan from May 29 through June 1, 2019, aims to aid business professionals who are looking to launch operations within the legal cannabis sector.
According to recently-released information, the pavilion sponsored by Cannabis & Tech Today will offer “a 360-degree view of the technologies and sciences that are impacting advancement and growth in the cannabis industry.” To provide this full view of the industry, the expo will have disruptors and innovators on hand who are changing the game. These are the folks who employed cutting-edge technology and used it to improve various steps of cannabis cultivation — from crop management to quality control and distribution. This wide-ranging approach is also perfectly-suited to CWCBExpo attendees, as the event draws everyone from entrepreneurs to investors to those considering entering the field.
Some of the companies that will have a presence at the Tech Pavilion include the following: Energy Inc., Fastcorp Vending, FolioGrow, InnoTek, GrowGeneration, Pathway OME’s, Quantum Leaf and Rad Source Technologies, Inc. According to CWCBExpo, heeding the advice of these firms is one of the ways for attendees to “streamline operations, improve your productivity, and increase the bottom line.” Moreover, CWCBExpo takes the adamant stance that ongoing advances in the cannabis sector are being driven by new science and technologies in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) track. The pavilion is part of Cannabis Week, which is being anchored by the CWCBExpo and gives attendees the chance to learn more about local and national efforts to move the industry forward.
According to a late 2018 industry recap, NBC News reported that legal cannabis was a $10.4 billion industry. “Investors poured $10 billion into cannabis in North America in 2018, twice what was invested in the last three years combined,” the article states. For those looking to become part of this sector, where everyone from multi-national medical companies to the inventor of Jelly Belly jellybeans is getting involved, the starting point should be the CWCBExpo in New York City.Go back
