The Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) is one of the leading business-to-business trade events for the legal cannabis industry. In a typical year, the organization holds at least three conferences in various cities nationwide, such as Los Angeles, Boston and New York City. However, as we know, 2020 is anything but typical.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 CWCBExpo events have been reimagined.

Instead of meeting in person at major business cities across the country this year, the CWCBExpo is going virtual with their CWCBExpoInsider event, scheduled for Nov. 17-18 at

This new digital forum is designed to keep the cannabis industry informed and connected as CWCBExpo looks forward to the resumption of its live events in 2021

“Since we can’t meet in person for our annual trade shows and conferences, CWCBExpoInsider will virtually bring the industry together to stay on top of important trends and opportunities, as well as facilitate real connections and business growth,” said Gregory Marco, President of CWCBExpo.

Regardless of the format, what resonates with attendees and the industry, is professionally run events that touch on the entire ecosystem of cannabis business while featuring unique and important content, world class exhibitors, and opportunities to make business connections. That is a hallmark of CWCBExpo events.

Thanks to CWCBExpo’s longstanding partnership with the National Hemp Association, the organization has always provided dedicated hemp content, products and services on its exhibits floor. And the CWCBExpoInsider will be no different.

In Bruce Linton’s keynote speech on Nov. 18, he will discuss his next great adventure – Collective Growth Corporation – focused on building the hemp industry and global supply chain. Additional hemp-focused sessions include: “The American Hemp Industry: A U.S. States and Stakeholders Perspective;” “Hemp Supply Chain: Ready for Building;” “Pathway to FDA Approval of CBD;” and CEO Roundtables with hemp titans and pioneers.
