A prominent figure in the cannabis and hip-hop worlds will speak at an upcoming conference event in Florida.
Rapper and Cookies brand Co-Founder Berner will speak on cannabis and psychedelics at Benzinga’s Cannabis Capital Conference and Psychadelics Capital Conference, which takes place between April 19 and April 21 at the Fontaineblue Miami Beach Hotel.
Benzinga Cannabis Managing Director Javier Hasse says he is looking forward to a nuanced discussion about building a multi-million-dollar cannabis company, noting that Berner’s insights are priceless for investors and entrepreneurs.
“I like to be a part of cool things and am humbled to be included in this conference,” says Berner. “Cannabis is setting the table for psychadelics, and I’m excited to talk about two important topics that I feel extremely passionate about.”
In addition to keynote speakers, panel discussions, company presentations, and networking opportunities, the conference will feature executives from top-performing cannabis companies and leading industry investors.
There will be fireside chats and appearances by investors and celebrities during the event as well.
Also featured will be an expo floor with larger booths, a private VIP area for select companies and investors, an upgraded one-on-one meeting system, and higher-profile attendees.
Benzinga Executive VP of Partnerships Patrick Lane says adding an expo floor is extremely exciting for the company.
“We were waiting for the right time to do this; now that we’ve had many years to curate the best of the best companies in the cannabis space, we feel confident that the offering will be like no other,” says Lane. “This, on top of the already impressive speaker lineup and investment opportunities Benzinga always brings to the table.”
Next month’s conference will be the first one to include an expo floor, something that Benzinga says will provide more visibility to brands shaping the cannabis space.
Attendees will also have access to private meeting areas, comfortable seating, and premium food choices.
The conference in April will be Benzinga’s 14th event, having held 13 previous editions in cities like Chicago, New York, Toronto, and Detroit.
“It’s an honor to count on the presence of a speaker of the level of Berner at our Miami event,” says Benzinga CEO Jeff Raznick. “The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Miami will bring 1,000 of the top movers and shakers in the cannabis industry to your backyard. This conference will be the best place to raise money, create partnerships, and expand media visibility for all involved.”
Raznick says the upcoming conference will cover important industry financial topics and facilitate higher levels of investment.
“We’ve seen cannabis businesses raise tens of millions of dollars at our events, and this year’s meeting will be even larger, with a record level of investment capital and top-notch operators,” says Raznick. “We’ll also dive into key issues related to cannabis and capital markets with incredible speakers and, for the first time ever, a slew of new features we cannot share publicly just yet.”
