On September 11th, 2019, investors, entrepreneurs, and branding experts will gather to dissect the economics of cannabis business brands at The Green Market Summit in Los Angeles, California. Following a sold-out event in Chicago, The Green Market Summit will bring its business acumen to the world of cannabis branding and provide exclusive industry information on topics such as the celebrity effect on cannabis, how to manage brand perception for public companies, and the world of luxury cannabis.

“Our conferences are unique within the glut of cannabis events in that we zero in on one topic and then dig in with both hands,” said Green Market Media Co-founder and CEO, Debra Borchardt. “This makes it more valuable for our attendees because they walk away with real value-added information. You can’t get this type of nitty-gritty detail from a general topic cannabis conference.”

The event will include an in-depth examination about how to develop an authentic cannabis brand, led by legendary musician Melissa Etheridge and involve Kevin Bell, the COO of Tyson Ranch founded by boxer Mike Tyson, and Courtney Zalewski from Lowell Herb, which has developed a strong outreach to influencers in cannabis.

The summit will also feature a panel discussion about celebrity athletes, cannabis brands, and their relationship with CBD. As the CBD market continues to grow at an explosive rate, more athletes than ever are turning to CBD to help relieve pain, turning many into passionate advocates for cannabis.

The panel will include former NFL offensive lineman and founder of the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, Kyle Turney; former professional ice hockey left winger and  Athletes for CARE co-founder, Riley Cote; NCAA national champion and Mendi founder, Rachel Rapinoe; former NFL player and Athletes for CARE Ambassador, Nate Jackson; and Athletes for CARE Executive Director Anna Valent.

The keynote event will star accomplished CNBC reporter Jane Wells, who will go one-on-one with a market leader in the edible cannabis market, Jake Heimark.

With more than three decades experience, Wells is a journalism veteran who has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including a 1992 Peabody Award and a DuPont Award for live coverage of the Rodney King Trial and a Los Angeles Emmy Award for her investigative reporting.

Heimark is the co-founder and CEO of PLUS Products, a publicly-traded California-based branded products cannabis company. During his tenure as CEO, Heimark has helped steer the company to become the #1 and #2 best-selling branded cannabis products across all BDS Analytics tracked markets, building a core following in the most influential market in the world, with over 1 million units of its signature PLUS gummies sold last year alone.

“PLUS is excited to partner with the Green Market Report for their Summit in LA to continue to educate individuals on the exciting opportunities within our emerging industry,” said Heimark. “We look forward to sharing our story and the progress we have made towards building an international cannabis brand.”

Attendance to the Green Market Summit is limited and is expected to sell out quickly. To get your ticket, please visit https://www.greenmarketsummit.com/tickets/.

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.

As the U.S. market continues to develop, the  Green Market Report invites you to discuss the advanced economic state of cannabis at the Green Market Summit in Chicago, Illinois on May 7, 2019. This special one-day symposium will discuss the continued development of the U.S. cannabis market, as well as the effect that the 2018 Farm Bill’s passage has had on the industry.

The Green Market Summit is designed to help investors network with some of the cannabis industry’s most powerful operators and provide up-to-date information and industry best practices to help facilitate the exchange of valuable data and market developments to improve investment decision making and business strategy.

The keynote event brings together the head of one of the fastest growing cannabis companies in the world, Peter Miller, CEO of Slang Worldwide Inc. (SLGWF), and one of the world’s most premier financial journalists, CNBC’s Tim Seymour, for a fireside chat about the explosive growth of the cannabis industry and specifically a deep dive looking at running a successful vape business.

Miller is a cannabis industry veteran with over 10 years of experience with agricultural, operational, and technological aspects of operating in the sector. He is also the co-founder of Mettrum Health Corp., which, in 2017, was sold to Canopy Growth Corporation for aggregate consideration of approximately $430 million. At the time, Mettrum Health Corp. was a leading licensed producer and vendor of medical cannabis. Mr. Miller is also the Chief Executive Officer of Agripharm.

Seymour is the founder and Chief Investment Officer of Seymour Asset Management(SAM). Tim is a recognized voice within the investment community as a trader and market strategist on CNBC. Tim was recently added as a Board Member at cannabis packaging company KushCo Holdings Inc (KSHB).

Multi-state cannabis operator and hometown Chicago favorite Cresco Labs (CL.CN) will explain the challenges of building a national brand in an environment where laws vary state-by-state and how the company is working towards creating a national identity despite these challenges.

Cresta Management will lead a panel about the skills and qualities that cannabis companies look for in employees and the trends that people search for when looking to work in the cannabis industry. It seems everyone wants to work in the cannabis industry these days and Cresta knows what the companies are looking for when they hire.

As the cannabis industry tries to understand the impact of the 2018 Farm Bill’s passage, which legalized industrial hemp on the federal level, Jonathan Rubin, Founder of Cannabis Benchmarks will relay what he’s learned from farmers and cultivators as to prices of the emerging hemp market. Hemp futures trading is expected to begin this year and Rubin has extensive knowledge with the pricing of wholesale hemp due to his years of working with wholesale cannabis prices.

Rounding out the event, cannabis entrepreneur Lori Ferrara of Treehouse Global Ventures will lead a frank and honest discussion about the role of women in the cannabis industry and how they can build their business and gain access to capital. Ferrara is an experienced adviser and a sought-after investor shark, a seasoned mentor, a mother, a pioneer. Ferrara is a 30-year veteran of highly regulated industries—including international categories such as television distribution and cannabis, where she’s made a habit of breaking through male-dominated industries’ glass ceilings via her tenacious entrepreneurial drive and fierce work ethic. She will be joined by Amy Margolis, Tahira Rehmatullah and Tracy Mason.

Margolis is a 17-year practicing attorney and founder of The Initiative, the world’s first business accelerator established to help female-founded cannabis businesses succeed and access funding. Rehmatullah serves as MTech Acquisition Corp’s Chief Financial Officer and is Managing Director of Hypur Ventures.

Of course, you can’t be a successful cannabis business if you can’t navigate through the compliance rules and regulations. MMLG Brands works directly with clients on sensitive matters that touch the industry directly. For compliance, licensing, and investment advice this is the top cannabis consulting firm. Aaron Lachant, CEO of MMLG, Juli Crockett, Director of Compliance at MMLG and Harry Nelson, founding partner at Nelson Hardiman will be on hand to talk to the crowd at the Summit.

Following the all-day symposium, ticket holders will be treated to an exclusive after-party sponsored by KCSA Strategic Communications and featuring complimentary food, cocktails, and music provided by Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root with Dirk Miller. Rusted Root had big hits in the 90’s including “Send Me On My Way.”
