Interest in marijuana investing has reached a fever pitch. At the recent Cannabis Capital Conference, presented by Benzinga, nearly 1,000 industry entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders gathered at the Fairmont Royal York in downtown Toronto to conduct deal flow, announce company news, and of course, network. The event, which recently expanded their programming, has become one of the preeminent shows on the circuit and a must-go.

“The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference turned out great, in my opinion,” said Javier Hasse, Managing Director of Benzinga Cannabis. “I heard from a lot of people who were very happy with the panels, and many more who were excited about the countless networking opportunities. I saw people meet, connect, chat, have fun, learn, and, fortunately, close deals.”
The two-day conference featured both speeches on hot industry topics as well as pitches by promising startups seeking capital. On Wednesday, panels on subjects including innovation in cannabis technology, Latin American opportunities, and the pharmaceutical market were capped off by a networking reception.
Thursday was dominated by over 40 unique company presentations with KCSA leadership presiding. The inclusion of an intimate one-on-one meeting arena away from the main stage prompted timely and efficient conversations.
“This industry is rapidly shifting – the dynamic programming here along with the 20 minute pitches exposed growth stage companies,” remarked Lisa Harun, Co-founder of Vapium, who also said she definitely plans to attend the next Benzinga event.
“I thought it was well worth the trip for networking with executives and investors,” said Evan Nison, founder of NisonCo PR, who drove up from New York City for the conference. “The panels were interesting and more specialized than other events which I like. The networking tables to me was actually even more useful than a fill exhibitor hall, as it allowed to actual conversation rather than just exchanging cards.”
After successful turnouts in Miami Beach and Toronto, it’s all eyes on the Windy City as Benzinga brings their Cannabis Capital Conference to Chicago in October. In the meantime, the Benzinga Trading Summit in New York City is happening June 20th.
“I commend the entire Benzinga team for the collaborative effort that made this possible, but want to send out a special shout out to Jason Raznick, Nicole Lapointe, Patrick Lane, Elliot Lane and Hannah Genig for working their magic to make this event our best one yet,” added Hasse. “Finally, I’d like to thank our sponsors and attendees as well as the media outlets covering the event: CNBC, Yahoo, Business Insider, CFN, Small Cap Power, MarketWatch, BNN Bloomberg, New Cannabis Ventures, The Marijuana Show, the Financial Post, the Growth Op, and others.”
