The NCIA's NorthEast Cannabis Business Conference Lands In Boston Feb. 19-20

Benzinga Cannabis

Formerly known as “Seed to Sale,” the National Cannabis Industry Association’s NorthEast Cannabis Business Conference is coming to Boston, Massachusetts February 19-20.

Benzinga readers can register here, and get a 30% off their passes using the code BENZ30.

“As the legalization of cannabis sweeps across the northeast, the industry's growth could result in billions of dollars of commerce and opportunity in the years to come. In order to keep up with the ever-changing climate, the industry must come together. NCIA is cornerstone in defending and advancing the interests of the responsible cannabis industry in our nation’s capital,” an event spokesperson explains.

Featured keynotes this year are:

  • “Reimagining Diversity & Inclusion: A Pathway to Courageous Conversations,” by Derreck Kayongo, entrepreneur, Global Soap Project founder, CNN Hero, and former CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
  • “Illicit Market Summit: Addressing the Illicit Cannabis Market Through Public-Private Collaboration,” with Andrew Kline, Britte McBride, Ed Davis and Sarah Gersten.

Benzinga Cannabis managing director Javier Hasse will be participating in the event as well, sitting on a panel on “Financial Media, Cannabis & Capital Markets” alongside Bloomberg reporter Kristine Owram, Business Insider reporter Jeremy Berke, MarketWatch reporter Max Cherney, and Lewis Goldberg, managing partner at KCSA Strategic Communications.
