Experience in the marijuana industry and managing high-caliber businesses have made Irwin Simon today the head of the largest company the cannabis space has ever witnessed. That’s why Benzinga, a financial news and data company, has considered Tilray’s CEO to deliver a keynote address at its upcoming Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference.
This cannabis finance and investment event is considered the largest in the world and of real importance to the growth of the industry in terms of numbers and how it has been doing in recent years. The Fontainebleau Miami Beach will be the home of the event, which will take place on April 20 and 21.
“We’ve seen cannabis businesses raise tens of millions of dollars at our events and this year’s meeting will be even larger, with a record level of investment capital and top-notch operators,” said Chief Zinger Jason Raznick. “We’re particularly excited about Irwin’s keynote, as he will share his wealth of knowledge and experience with our attendees.”
There is no doubt that this is a must-attend event for everyone interested in the cannabis industry. The enhanced version of the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, the biggest and best yet, will not only be the excuse to hear and witness the best panel discussions, company presentations, fireside chats, and investor and celebrity appearances but now a larger exhibit floor and important networking opportunities have been implemented.
Key new features include a private VIP area for select companies and investors, an unprecedented show floor, an upgraded 1:1 meeting system and many more networking opportunities.
There is no doubt that being invited to be one of the opening speakers is a privilege for Simon, who for many years has dedicated his life to the cannabis industry. Benzinga has always been known for bringing the best speakers in the space, and being the leader of one of the largest companies in the world is certainly a smart choice.
