Thank you MJBizCon for another great hit last week in Las Vegas! Previous conferences have consistently provided both valuable and relevant content for attendees. This year was no exception — high quality speakers covering a timely array of topics that ranged from recent developments in production and packaging to strategic considerations for potential partnerships with mainstream companies preparing to enter the cannabis industry. It was a seriously good conference and we encourage all industry participants to attend in the future.
We were happy to send four team members to the event, including three MJBizCon veterans who recently joined our Cannabis Team roster — Josh Ashby, Ben Pirie and Sativa Rasmussen. All four of us welcomed the opportunity to meet with our many clients and industry friends. Apologies to the many other clients (and potential clients) with whom we could not meet for lack of time. We simply had to jump ship in Vegas to head for the 6th Annual Northwest Marijuana Law Conference, hosted by Seattle University School of Law. Sativa and Josh co-chaired the seminar, Lane Powell served as a sponsor, and Justin Hobson and Ben were both speakers. So our absence at the Seattle conference would have been problematic. We have been assured that overlap of the two conferences will be avoided next year. Again, our apologies to the many people whom we wanted to accommodate but could not for lack of time. Of course our phone lines are always open . . . Our goal next year is not only to catch up with our friends and clients but also to facilitate introductions between participants in the industry.
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving,
Josh, Justin, Ben & Sativa
