B2B Event for BIPOC Cannabis Professionals Returns to New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS – Black CannaBusiness Conference has announced the third annual Black CannaBusiness Expo & Conference will take place Nov. 3-5 at the Morial Convention Center. The conference and expo will feature keynote addresses, workshops and breakout sessions. More than 40 speakers will talk about the state of BIPOC cannabis business, from social equity and policy to capital funding and cultivation.
“As we head into our third year, we are excited to be introducing new amazing speakers as well as unique and exciting networking and educational opportunities for our exhibitors and attendees,” said Kristi Price, founder and CEO of Black CannaBiz Expo. “Our goal every year is to create a safe and productive place not only for people of color, but for everybody in the cannabis industry that believes in inclusion and justice.”
“At Curaleaf, we are looking for ways to continue expanding access to our company and the cannabis industry at large,” said Raheem Uqdah, director of corporate social responsibility at Curaleaf. “Minority communities have shouldered the burden of cannabis’ prohibition and deserve to reap the benefits of regulation both medically and financially. We are honored to be a part of the Black CannaBiz Expo and its continued success as a hub of learning and networking for BIPOC professionals who are looking to be a part of this incredible industry.”
Returning partners Wana Brands, Cresco Labs and Parallel will join newcomers 5th House Farms and Blackout Ventures to help present the event.
