The cannabis industry continues aiming for maturity, and meanwhile, it has been getting more attention from other leading industries in the world. Several of the major cannabis corporations in the North American region are becoming important in today’s business industry; therefore, it is more common to see them participating in business conferences. One of the leading cannabis operators in the North American region, Canopy Growth, just announced that tomorrow, September 9, at 4:40 PM ET, it will participate in this year’s Barclays Global Consumer Staples Conference (BGCSC).
The BGCSC is an annual Equity Research Conference focused on the consumer sector, and it involves corporate senior management making presentations to the firm’s institutional investors. This conference hosts large-scale presentations simultaneously, as well as 11 meetings and dine-arounds. The conference starts today, and it finishes in a couple of days; this year, the whole conference is happening virtually due to COVID-19. This popular conference has been known for providing a space where executives and institutional investors can explore and exchange ideas as well as engaging in insightful discussions on the latest market trends and investment opportunities.
On behalf of Canopy Growth, the company’s CEO David Klein and the EVP & CFO Mike Lee are participating in a fireside chat with some investors as part of this year’s activity. The presentation will be broadcast via audio webcast and it will be made accessible to anyone interested through the investors’ related section of the company’s website.
Canopy Growth was the first cannabis venture to enter the public stock market and it is currently listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The company has its headquarters and main operations in Canada; however, it has been expanding across the legal cannabis markets in the US with great success. Canopy Growth has a deal with the Fortune 500 beverage alcohol supplier Constellation brands that has brought a positive impact to the company’s operations.
