The 5th Annual MJ Business Daily Conference in Las Vegas was a true testament to the massive momentum this industry has generated.
There were nearly 11,000 attendees this year and several hundred exhibitors marketing their products and services to over 10,000 prospective or current cannabis entrepreneurs.
An impressive leap from the first MJ Business Daily conference in November of 2012, where 250 people attended to hear a handful of speakers and access an “Exhibit Hall” with a dozen booths.
The fact that this event came days after eight states passed some type of cannabis legalization only added to the energy.
Canna Advisors was well represented at the event. Diane was a featured speaker at the Marijuana Business Crash Course and also took the stage alongside her son, Tyler Stratford of MJ Freeway, during the, “Lessons Learned from Licensing Hits & Misses: A Chain Reaction Panel.”
We enjoyed connecting with many former, current, and prospective clients. And catching up with many long-time industry friends.
I have enjoyed my front-row seat in watching this event grow. The event set the stage for 2017, which is going to be a monumental tipping point for cannabis legalization worldwide.
