Investors and industry entrepreneurs and leaders gathered in the heart of Detroit for the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference earlier this month. The historic, luxurious Westin Book Cadillac was the selected venue for the sold-out event that attracted cannabis innovators and those looking for new opportunities from far and wide and shined a spotlight on ideas and insight shaping the emerging space. In an exciting time for the cannabis industry with widening interest and legalization, the event was abuzz with new cannabis products, services and solutions across many verticals of rapidly growing medical and recreational markets.

The best breed of companies and entrepreneurs seeking capital and those interested in finding a unique niche or the right collaboration formed new connections and gathered insight and ideas at the event. The agenda offered a full lineup of investor and lightning-round presentations, engaging events and on-stage panels. One-on-one meetings offered the ability to quickly connect and bring industry innovators, key decision makers and like-minded individuals face-to-face to explore future opportunities.

Panels, such as ‘Policy in the State of Michigan’, offered a chance to stay informed of the industry’s ever-changing rules and regulations. In addition to relevant and current information on the legal and compliance landscape, other panels offered insight regarding the ins-and-outs of the sector. This included a panel on navigating local cannabis brands led by Red, White and Bloom CEO Brad Rogers, Peter Barsoom of 1906 and Paul Pedersen from Nextleaf Solutions. The event was filled with eye-opening demonstrations and opportunities to take a closer look at new products coming to market and sample offerings, such as a flavorful assortment of beer tasting options from Green Peak Innovations.

“This is the third Benzinga conference we’ve attended, and it’s always a pleasure working with the event staff and connecting with key industry innovators and those new to the market segment in a time alive with excitement for the scope and potential of the industry,” said CannabisNewsWire Director of Communications Jonathan Keim. “It’s well known that Benzinga conferences regularly attract professionals for high-quality networking and productive time well spent. The exhibit hall was filled with chatter surrounding the newest products and offerings, and it was a pleasure to meet with leading and up-and-coming companies staking their claim in the industry. We congratulate Benzinga on their sold-out event and appreciate the opportunity to assist in shining a media spotlight on the conference and participating companies.”

The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference will next head to Chicago, to be held at the Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel, October 22-23, 2019. Interested parties can view details and purchase tickets by visiting
