After many months of planning and preparation, the Cannabis 2017: Cultivation Conference is just one week out. The event, which will be held March 20-22 at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, Calif., brings many of the cannabis cultivation industry’s most innovative minds and leading vendors together in one place for a three-day educational program designed by growers, for growers.
"We are extremely excited with just one week to go until Cannabis 2017!” says CBT Editor Noelle Skodzinski, who also curated the event’s educational programming.
“Our amazing speakers are all ready, and we continue to appreciate their support and eagerness to share their insights with the cultivation industry -- on everything from ways to maximize yield, increase profit margins, create effective standard operating procedures (SOPs), automate facilities, increase your chances of winning a cultivation license, and so much more," she says.
The CBT team produced this conference to fill a need in the cannabis industry, says Cannabis Business Times Group Publisher Jim Gilbride. Those efforts have been met with great enthusiasm by the industry.
“Attendance is exceeding our expectations. Online registration is still open until Friday, and we’re expecting more on site,” Gilbride says. “We’re looking forward to bringing our industry-leading exhibitors together with cannabis cultivators from throughout North America in this landmark event that truly unites the business and cultivation aspects of the industry.”
"We are very proud of the program that the Cannabis Business Times editorial team and the conference advisory board have put together,” Skodzinski says. “And we know that attendees are going to walk away with loads of practical information to help them either expand and increase the profitability of their existing cultivation businesses or build successful cultivation businesses. We’ve focused on a mix of practical day-to-day education with big-picture perspectives to help businesses not only survive, but thrive in the long-term.”
Cultivators who haven’t already registered to attend the event can register here at a reduced rate until Friday, March 17). After Friday, attendees can register on-site at the event.
