“San Diego provides a perfect waterfront venue for individuals from across the country who want to combine their summer vacations with cannabis business and education opportunities,” said LEAF Brand Inc. CEO Rory Mendoza. "This is the first time a large scale cannabis conference has taken place in the city and town officials have welcomed us with open arms."

Event highlights and speakers include former NFL players from the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, a legal panel with up-to-date information about federal and state legislation, and a panel bringing together the most powerful women in cannabis.

Other highlights of the two-day event are business-to-business networking forums, a wealth of industry experts, educational workshops, and more than 150 floor exhibitors who will present the latest developments in cannabis goods and services. Presenter WEEDMAPS will have a large presence at the show and a team of representatives to help attendees connect through their popular social media app.

LEAF Brands Inc. is the company behind this year’s first-ever SXSW Cannabis Music Showcase in Austin, and the first legal cannabis events in Fort Worth, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona.

“This is a groundbreaking event where Californians can learn more about opportunities in the industry, the laws affecting them and how the cannabis industry is evolving in their state. Let's Educate A Future California,” Mendoza said.
