Cannabis Forum Winter 2019 Agenda Released

It’s time to announce the official agenda for the Cannabis Forum for Food and Beverage, presented by BevNET and NOSH, on Friday, December 6 in Santa Monica, Calif.

The cannabis market continues to evolve, and we’re going to come back together, this time at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, to discuss what’s changed in the past six months and where everything is headed. Leaders from cannabis brands, retailers, investors, lawyers and safety standard advocates will tap into the challenges and opportunities for food and beverage brands looking to manufacture cannabis-infused products.

Recently added presentations include:

  • Cy Scott, the CEO of Headset, will present data on the state of the market and provide future projections for the emerging cannabis industry, with a focus on how it impacts packaged food and beverage brands.
  • Jill Ellsworth, the founder & CEO of Willow Industries, Inc., will provide a look at the ways that the cannabis and food & beverage industries differ at the factory floor level, and outline the pitfalls that can await food entrepreneurs who are unaccustomed to the evolving manufacturing scene in the cannabis business.
  • Ricardo Baca, the Founder & CEO of Grasslands, will provide a look at the combination of cultural, regulatory, consumer and media climates that define the cannabis business within the public eye.
  • Michael Devlin, President of edibles manufacturer Db3, Inc., Will Kleidon, the founder & CEO of Ojai Energetics, and Hilary Brown, the Director of Products for SoRSE Technology, will be on board for a unique “ask me anything” format panel that brings together a supply chain expert, a scientist and a food formulator to shed light on the evolving art of incorporating cannabis-derived ingredients into the culinary and manufacturing process of tasty food and beverage products.

The full agenda features industry trailblazers from Caliva, NUG, Margolin & Lawrence, and Privateer Holdings who will provide navigation for food and beverage brands looking into growth strategies, regulatory issues, and fundraising opportunities around the cannabis business. Time has also been built in to network and ask questions, including the Official After Party Powered by HerbForce, which takes place across the street after the one-day program concludes.

The Cannabis Forum is only 18 days away on Friday, Dec. 6 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel and is positioned to allow food, beverage and beer professionals attending NOSH Live, BevNET Live and Brewbound Live a deep dive into the legal cannabis business. Attendees of either NOSH Live, BevNET Live or Brewbound Live can attend the Cannabis Forum for $499. Individual Cannabis Forum tickets are available for $999 per person.
