Cannabis networking site Leafwire and Marijuana Business Daily, the publishing firm behind the largest B2B cannabis trade show, have decided to partner for a digital space dedicated to cannabis industry networking and education, Forbes reports.
MJBizDaily has already postponed or reenvisioned many of their events in the wake of COVID-19 and the new partnership with Leafwire — the self-described “LinkedIn of Cannabis” — will offer would-be event attendees a shot at engaging with other industry professionals while still honoring social distancing guidelines.
The companies plan to lead multiple discussion groups on the Leafwire platform focused on MJBizDaily content; subject matter experts will help to moderate questions from the digital crowd.
“Meeting people where they are online is key right now and without the benefit of traditional in-person gatherings, it’s even more important to provide ways for our passionate, active community to engage and communicate. We always want to meet people where they are and in their communication locations of preference. Leafwire has an excellent and growing community we want to support and engage with.” — Chris Day, MJBizDaily’s VP of External Relations, via Forbes
Leafwire founder and CEO Peter Vogel said, “We’re confident the Leafwire audience will be excited to have these groups laser-focused on the components of the industry that people care most about.”
