Cannabis and hemp-related events are proliferating as fast as CBD brands. A new event seems to pop up every week, adding to more than 500 listings a year in the U.S. alone.
Now, if you’ve ever attended more than one of these events, you’ve probably noticed most of them are very similar: the same topics, the same speakers, the same attendees, the same companies…It gets boring, unproductive, extremely time consuming, and expensive. In this context, every event organizer will claim their event is unique, like no other.
To make the situation worse for investors and people looking to network with other businesses and/or get their companies funded, investor-focused cannabis events, of which the U.S. witnesses more than 200 each year, boast higher-than-normal ticket prices, ranging from $50 to $2,000.
