Attend industry sessions developed to get you up to speed quick in your new cannabis operation

Your state just legalized cannabis.
You made a career move into the cannabis industry.
You just won a cannabis business license.
You just started operating.

No matter how or why you entered the market, the cannabis industry can be complicated to navigate. As more states open regulated markets, you need the right tools be successful. Attendees can expect to hear objective, professional insights from some of the industry’s top leaders on how to get operations off the ground, considerations for how to grow your business and how to avoid certain pitfalls. These strategic and tactical sessions were built to address the needs of new market players.

From the Ground Up: Cultivation, Processing, Retail

From the Ground Up is a series of three sessions for operators who are new to the space or just getting their feet wet. Each 45-minute session will cover cultivation, processing and retail. The content is focused on operators who are just getting started or are looking to get back to the basics. 

Increasing Minority Participation in the Cannabis Industry’s New and Emerging Markets

In today’s cannabis landscape, there is a lot of talk about social equity policy and barriers to entry – both in existing and emerging markets. Aside from social equity programs and pursuing a plant-touching license, there are numerous opportunities for minority entrepreneurs, business owners and contractors to profit. This panel will identify actionable steps that minorities can take to get involved in the cannabis business and how existing operators can build and support diverse participation in the industry.

Understanding the Complex World of Cannabis and Taxes

Taxes are continually one of the biggest headaches faced by cannabis producers and retailers, thanks to the infamous Section 280E of the U.S. Tax Code. Having a comprehensive understanding of how taxes will affect your cannabis business is imperative to having longevity in the industry. In this session, tax experts will guide you on key factors to consider as you structure your business and offer tips for lowering your tax bill.
