DENVER, Oct. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via CannabisNewsWire – One of the premier gatherings of cannabis entrepreneurs and investors in North America, the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, is only a few weeks from showtime. Slated to take place in Chicago Oct. 22–23, 2019, the two-day event will create the ideal setting for attendees to learn from the prolific individuals and experts driving the cannabis space forward amid regulation, legalization and industry changes. 

The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference events — held throughout the year in various North American cities — enable investors to come face-to-face with top cannabis companies and hear about their advancements in the rapidly changing cannabis space. The events also feature lightning-round presentations and invaluable one-on-one meetings designed for cannabis executives searching for new opportunities to grow business enterprises.

CannabisNewsWire is also happy to announce it has been re-engaged as the event’s official newswire to provide additional exposure for all participants.

“Our team is always thrilled to work with Benzinga’s event organizers,” said Jonathan Keim, director of communications for CannabisNewsWire. “This well-experienced organization is known throughout the space for consistently attracting North America’s leading cannabis innovators, investors and entrepreneurs.”

This year’s Chicago event kicks off on Tuesday, Oct. 22, with a VIP breakfast and VIP cannabis discussion led by industry experts Alan Brochstein, Bruce Linton and Giadha Aguirre de Carcer.

Linton is executive chairman at Gage Cannabis, a premium adult-use cannabis retailer in Ayer, Massachusetts. Brochstein is founder of 420 Investors, the go-to community for investors to learn, explore and profit from marijuana companies. Aguirre de Carcer is founder and CEO of New Frontier Data, whose mission is to provide transparency in the cannabis industry via unbiased vetted data & analytics reporting.

Following the VIP event, the conference officially kicks off with opening remarks by Aguiree de Carcer and Jason Raznick, CEO and founder of Benzinga. A keynote address by Charles Bachtell, CEO and co-founder of Cresco Labs, follows before the day’s sessions begin.

Conference sessions cover a wide range of topics, including the following:

  • Listing on the NASDAQ
  • LPs Positioning in Europe and the United States
  • From Wine to Weed to What’s Next
  • MSOs Revolutionize New U.S. Market

In addition to the sessions above, day one includes two panel discussions:

In addition to the immense information shared and investment opportunities explored, one of the greatest benefits of attending Benzinga events is the networking opportunities.

No other conference offers the level of access and seamlessness of interaction between entrepreneurs building future billion-dollar cannabis enterprises and the investors whose capital can make that happen.
