Cannabis Investors Preparing For WeedStock Confernce Announcements


Investors across the country are preparing to adjust investments in the cannabis space following announcements they hear at the WeedStock conference, taking place from June 29 to July 1 in Denver.

One of the biggest value adds investors are looking forward to, is discussion of new offerings. As the industry quickly develops, almost every firm is launching new products and services. In many cases, details will be given for the first time at WeedStock, along with the first opportunity for executives to answer investor questions. For example, Vapor Group VPOR will be introducing its new line of high end vaporizers. COO Yaniv Nahon commented, “this conference is important to us because it gives us the opportunity to showcase our new technologies.”

Policy change will be another hot topic at the conference. Companies will discuss not only how changes in legislation throughout the world will affect their business, but also what impact Colorado’s legalization has on the rest of country.

Entrepreneurs in the cannabis space will discuss steps what it take to launch a new business. Topics will range from launching the company, to securing financing, to working with the SEC. The value of this coverage is not only that entrepreneurs will better understand operations in the space, but investors will have an idea of what it takes for competitors of publicly traded companies they own to launch.

Keynote speaker and internationally acclaimed cannabis investor Alan Brochstein commented, “We are still in the early stages of an incredible transformation of this industry. This first-of-its-kind conference will be a chance for those interested in learning about potential opportunities to hear from industry experts as well as the leaders of a second wave of publicly-traded companies and private companies that are seeking to capitalize on the changes ahead." Over 1,600 investors depend on Brochstein’s analysis of the cannabis industry as members of the 420 Investor.
