Brief: International Cannabis Business Conference Coming to Portland, OR

The International Cannabis Business Conference will be held September 13-14 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR.

According to the conference’s official website,

The International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC) delivers learning sessions of educational seminars and provides a platform for networking and discussions on current cannabis industry issues, with expert speakers on topics ranging from dispensary operations to investment opportunities. This is an educational and networking “must do” for anyone interested or involved in the cannabis industry.

Speakers at the conference will include leading expert on marijuana cultivation Ed Rosenthal, Oregon’s own U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer and Senator Floyd Prozanski, and popular blogger and advocate for marijuana law reform Andrew Sullivan.

Additionally, industry experts from Colorado and Washington will be discussing their own professional experiences through the transition from medical to recreational marijuana. Hopeful ganjapreneurs in Oregon can expect to learn how to properly prepare for legalization.

“We’re positioned to be a leader in the industry,” Sen. Prozanski said. “It’s pretty straightforward. The Cascadia region from north California to British Columbia is pretty renowned for the product.”

Event organizer Alex Rogers, CEO of Ashland Alternative Health and Northwest Alternative Health, said in a press release, “Attendees will learn about details and changes in the new Oregon dispensary laws and explore business opportunities in the ancillary fields surrounding the global cannabis industry.”

Oregon will be voting on the issue of recreational marijuana this November. Industry experts remain hopeful that the election will see Oregon become the third state to fully legalize and regulate the drug.
