BevNET and NOSH Present: The First Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage

BevNET and NOSH present: The Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage, a new half-day forum, hosted on Saturday, December 1st, the weekend between NOSH Live and BevNET Live.

The forum will bring to entrepreneurs from across the CPG industry the opportunity to focus on the intersection of food and beverage companies with the fast-growing cannabis industry — one with the potential to reach $25 billion by 2025, according to a study by New Frontier Data. The massive interest in — and approaches to — the incorporation of Marijuana, Hemp, THC and CBD as functional ingredients in food and beverage brands is shared by new companies and existing brands alike. Nevertheless, there is still much to understand and much more that is undefined in an industry that is being created on international, federal, state, and local levels simultaneously.

Designed to help the the industry define and strategize around the potential of this new category, the Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage invites both cannabis companies and food and beverage companies to go beyond their curiosity and explore how the markets will merge as cannabis products proliferate. Whether companies are looking to develop new products, further existing businesses, or just be more knowledgeable about the space, the forum provides expert insight into sourcing and quality control, regulatory and legal issues, retail strategy, investment, marketing and consumer education, packaging requirements and more.

The half-day forum, on Saturday, December 1st, will be hosted at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, the venue for both NOSH Live and BevNET Live. Taking place from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, and followed by an industry mixer, the event features expert presentations as well as time to network with forward-thinking industry players interested in the rising category.
