Katherine Grimm, breakout star of CNN’s popular docu-series "High Profits," will appear at the inaugural Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo on October 27 and 28 at the Phoenix Convention Center.
Grimm, who will attend a meet-and-greet with attendees and appear as a panelist, is the unlikely star of the CNN Original Series, produced by Bat Bridge Entertainment, that followed the saga of a Breckenridge, Colorado recreational marijuana dispensary. As the owner of Clever Gent Bud, Grimm stood out as the show’s intelligent, strategic cannabis entrepreneur.
Organizers also announced featured breakout session speakers including Scottsdale attorneys Laura Bianchi and Ryan Hurley of the Rose Law Group who will discuss the latest legislative issues related to cannabis in Arizona, and the country.
More than 300 exhibitors are expected at the two-day event that includes interactive workshops, leading industry guest speakers, a job fair, business-to-business networking and more. Thousands of attendees from across the Southwest are expected to attend.
The first annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo is presented by the Southwest Expo Group, software developer MJ Freeway and New Times Phoenix. Tickets and convention information are available by calling the Southwest Event Group at 1-877-775-1568 or online at swccexpo.com. The Phoenix Convention Center is located at 100 N. 3rd Street. Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m during the event.
