This October 27 and 28, the inaugural Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo kicks off at the Phoenix Convention Center with more than 300 floor exhibits, interactive workshops, leading industry guest speakers, a job fair, business-to-business networking and more. The event is expected to draw tens of thousands of attendees from all over the Southwest.
“The subject of this convention is too important to overlook,” said Rory Mendoza, executive director of the event. “The U.S. market for legal cannabis grew by 74 percent last year alone, according to researchers at the ArcView Group.”
Anyone interested in learning more about the wealth of business and employment opportunities presented by the booming $2.7 billion legal marijuana industry is invited to attend. “We’re expecting visitors from California to Texas and beyond in large part because several of our states are evaluating policy and legislation affecting medical and recreational cannabis usage,” said Mendoza. “This conference is designed to allow policy makers and national industry leaders, investors, business executives, health experts, job seekers and entrepreneurs a place to learn, share ideas and connect with others on the national cannabis scene.”
The first annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo is presented by the Southwest Expo Group and software developer MJ Freeway. Tickets and convention information are available by calling the Southwest Event Group at 1-877-775-1568 or online at swccexpo.com. The Phoenix Convention Center is located at 100 N. 3rd Street. Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m during the event.
