Chicago Cannabis Capital Conference: Meet The MSO Panel

Hannah Genig

If you have attended past Cannabis Capital Conferences, you know that Benzinga is recognized for bringing in the most reputable, cutting-edge companies and speakers in the industry.

From an extemporaneous keynote from Acreage Holdings Inc (OTC: ACRGF) CEO Kevin Murphy to a fireside chat with “King of Instagram” Dan Bilzerian, Benzinga events are nothing short of exciting.

While Benzinga's events team gears up for its biggest, most unforgettable conference yet — we are happy to announce speakers of the highest caliber. Here’s a rundown of who you’ll hear from on the multistate operator panel (and potentially meet) in Chicago this October.

Hadley Ford, CEO Of iAnthus Holdings, Inc.

iAnthus Capital Holdings Inc (OTC: ITHUF) is one of the biggest multistate operators, with involvement in cultivation, processing, retail and more.

Among other substantial company benchmarks, Ford and his team became the first multistate operator in the U.S. to go public and raise capital in Canada. Earlier this year, iAnthus announced a licensing agreement with Blissiva, a women-owned and women-centered cannabis company.

Kim Rivers, CEO Of Trulieve Cannabis Corp.

With dispensaries in Florida, California, Connecticut and soon Massachusetts, Trulieve (OTC: TCNNF) provides medical cannabis in the form of vape pens, tinctures, capsules and much more.

At the Benzinga event in Toronto this past April, Rivers explained the importance of mergers and acquisitions within the U.S. cannabis market.

Brian Schinderle, EVP Of Finance, Grassroots Cannabis

Chicago-based Grassroots is a vertically integrated multistate operator with licenses to cultivate, process and dispense in Illinois, Maryland, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

The company, created in 2014, has since become the largest privately held cannabis company in the U.S. — bolstered by a recent $90-million capital raise.

Be sure to join the Benzinga events team in Chicago this fall to hear from these three executives and many more. Grab your tickets here!
