Leveraging its extensive array of corporate-communications solutions, IBN aims to elevate the visibility of exhibitors, participants, and the conferences among diverse audiences, including public officials, investors, influencers, media professionals, consumers, and the general public.

IBN’s core strategies for expanding public outreach include cutting-edge wire-grade press releases that pack punch for each event and includes article syndication across IBN’s 5,000+ strategic distribution partners. Additionally, IBN will publish content on multiple social media channels and provide featured event placements on CannabisNewsWire.

Commenting on the renewed engagement, Craig Corban, Director of Marketing at ZJ Events, stated, “ZJ Events excels in producing top-notch events that provide attendees with fun and thrilling experiences, setting us apart in a unique category within the traditionally dull conference space. As former exhibitors ourselves, we have a unique understanding of what it takes to create truly dynamic business gatherings that drive productive networking.

IBN and CannabisNewsWire have been excellent partners for our events, and have been instrumental in driving wider online presence.”

Randy Clark, Director of Global Operations at CannabisNewsWire, added, “We are thrilled that CNW has been re-engaged by ZJ Events. Their highly professional and motivated team produces industry-leading events praised and appreciated by new participants and seasoned professionals alike.”
