Just days before the Green Market Summit in Chicago on May 7, Illinois Governor Pritzker announced his plans for regulating adult-use cannabis. While some in the state weren’t really sure whether full legalization would happen, the news made it become very real, very fast. As a result ticket sales for the summit took off and the event hit capacity.
Attendees were impressed at the quality of the executives that attended. One person said, “I can’t believe I got to speak to Peter Miller, the CEO of SLANG. I wouldn’t get that chance at another conference.” Another panelist left saying that he believed he had sold two dispensaries as a result of the conference. A sponsor of the event said it gained five new clients.
Each panel was videotaped and are currently being edited. They will be published over the next two weeks. If you weren’t able to attend the conference, this video will give you a taste of what you missed. More events are being planned throughout the year. The Green Market Summit is building a reputation as an event where attendees really get to network and develop meaningful professional relationships, while the sponsors add business.
