The fourth annual Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference takes place at the Westin Book Cadillac in downtown Detroit, Michigan, on Aug.15, 2019. The conference brings together a select group of carefully vetted companies and an equally first-rate group of institutional and accredited investors.
The imminent opening of the recreational market in Michigan makes attendance at this event crucial, for its agenda will address many issues that impact the viability and success of cannabis enterprises. Topics range from choosing real estate to understanding social equity; the gathering will also include sessions on cannabis regulation and policy, traditional investing, alternative financing, and creating a successful brand. Sessions will take the form of panel discussions, fireside chats, pitches, and presentations, as well as a number of keynote speeches from influential figures in the industry.
Following the successful ballot initiative in 2018, sales of recreational cannabis market will begin in Michigan on Nov. 1, 2019. The market is expected to grow quickly, reaching $1.5 billion by 2021. The timing and value of the Benzinga event has never been better.
