The South West Cannabis Conference Recap| 0
The South West Cannabis Conference + Expo promised to be the region’s most professional and educational medical cannabis conference to date. Given the grand expectations, the event coordinators still managed to underpromise and overdeliver. The Weedmaps event presence was especially strong. The team pulled out all the stops with a fully interactive booth. Weedmaps invited businesses and consumers to meet up and relax in a comfortable and private atmosphere to engage in a discussion about the future of cannabis in the United States. The enclosed Weedmaps lounge turned out to be a real networking hub for the cannabis community at large as well as a popular place to stock up on special event swag.
The packed event featured a number of illuminating speakers who dove deep into topics ranging from Veterans/PTSD, Power Women of the Cannabis Industry, Kickstarting your Cannabis Career, and Regulatory Forecast. Everyone who was able to attend even a few of the conference’s many speaking engagements went home feeling empowered with what they learned. In addition to the informative slate of relevant topics, the conference hosted a very unique look at cannabis in professional sports with special presentations from NFL All-Stars Ricky Williams, Nate Jackson, Kyle Turley, and Eben Britton. It was rather inspiring to see and hear the panel discuss their relationship with marijuana and how they’ve used it over the years to treat an assortment of pains and ailments.
Executive Director Rory Mendoza was pleased with the outcome of the SWCC. As a result of the event’s success, Mendoza would like to replicate the SWCC in other regions throughout the country. Judging from the huge crowds that made it to the show floor and all of the speaking events, the leaders of this conference appear to have developed a winning formula for an exceptional cannabis event that could succeed anywhere in the country. Weedmaps is proud to have taken part in the the South West’s most ambitious, professional, and informative cannabis conference and expo to date.
