We’re ready to reveal the official agenda for the Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage, presented by BevNET and NOSH, on June 14th in New York City.
Since our last event, a lot has happened in the cannabis space. New entrants into the market have skyrocketed, with food and beverage companies increasingly seeing opportunity in products infused with both CBD and THC. It’s time we all catch up and take stock of the market. The agenda for next month’s Cannabis Forum features conversation-provoking topics ranging from cannabrand building to regulations to financing and investment.
