Attendees will convene at St. Louis’ historic Union Station this spring with opening remarks by DHSS’ new marijuana director
ST. LOUIS — On Tuesday, the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association (MoCannTrade) announced the state’s largest medical marijuana trade conference, MoCannBizCon + Expo, will take place on March 11 and 12 at Union Station in St. Louis.
In the November 2018 general election, Missourians overwhelmingly approved Amendment 2, with over 66% voting yes, making Missouri the 31st state to allow doctors to recommend medical marijuana to patients with serious and debilitating illnesses. MoCannBizCon + Expo will provide an expected 1,000-1,500 attendees the knowledge and resources to successfully participate in Missouri’s new medical marijuana industry.
Under Amendment 2, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is charged with implementing and regulating Missouri’s medical cannabis program. The department announced last month that former State Rep. Lyndall Fraker will be the state’s medical marijuana director. Fraker will be the opening keynote speaker at the MoCannBizCon + Expo.
“It is important that as the medical marijuana industry builds in Missouri, people interested in investing or participating have access to credible resources and knowledge,” said Andrew Mullins, Executive Director of MoCannTrade. “This will be an opportunity to gain insight and address questions for potential Missouri medical marijuana license holders. Participants will also benefit from an expansive agenda of seasoned industry experts and speakers covering every aspect of Missouri’s emerging medical cannabis industry.”
MoCannBizCon + Expo will be the largest medical marijuana industry-related event in Missouri to date and will feature keynotes, panel discussions, and workshops. The conference will also feature a service provider expo hall where industry vendors will showcase banking, legal, security, greenhouse, lighting, license application, IT systems, operations, insurance, marketing and other services to help prepare attendees to participate in Missouri expected $500M+ market.
The two-day conference will be held at St. Louis’ Union Station in downtown St. Louis on the western end of the Gateway Mall and is produced by event production company Midwest Canna Expos. Vendor booths, conference sponsorships and attendee tickets are all available now and going fast.
