The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, a cornerstone in the U.S. cannabis capital event landscape, is broadening its scope. This expansion comes with the introduction of Cannabis Market Spotlight, a series of regional events, debuting in Southern California. Set for Thursday, February 22nd, at Bioscience LA in Culver City, Los Angeles, this marks a new chapter for the conference, now venturing into local markets across the country.
The Cannabis Market Spotlight series aims to bring together key players in the industry, including top dealmakers, local entrepreneurs and government officials. These events will offer a unique mix of national industry insights and essential local connections.
The Los Angeles event will feature notable executives from leading cannabis brands like Cann, Garden Society and Old Pal and prominent investors from Mindset Capital, Poseidon Investment Management and Ultranative, among others. Speakers include Seth Yakatan of Katan Associates and Tiffany Chin of Doggy Style Records and Leafs By Snoop, with Elliot Lane, co-host of the Benzinga Cannabis Podcast as the emcee.
Elliot Lane highlighted Benzinga’s established role in the cannabis sector: “Benzinga is recognized for connecting finance and consumer goods in our bi-annual Cannabis Capital Conferences, attracting over 5,000 registrants annually. As we prepare for our 18th national event this April, we’re extending our media, thought leadership, and networking platforms to the nation’s most vibrant markets, starting with California.”
California’s cannabis market, the largest in the U.S., is forecasted to hit $5.4 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual rate of 12.2%. In the past year, California’s cannabis companies raised nearly $290 million and participated in about $129 million in mergers and acquisitions, as reported by Viridian Capital Advisors.
As the event nears, ticket prices are set to increase. Benzinga is offering discounted tickets to cannabis business owners involved in state-certified social equity initiatives. Attendees can purchase tickets online and those interested in sponsorship opportunities are encouraged to apply through the conference website.
