The SWCC Expo is an emerging conference and showcase for B2B cannabis businesses. The event focuses strongly on industry networking, and boasts an elaborate exhibition floor for vendors. Each event also features industry leaders and experts, educational sessions and seminars, and celebrity appearances.
“We are super excited! This year, cannabis refugee 11-year-old Alexis Bortell returns to the convention. She is going to be releasing her new book along with being a keynote speaker and doing book signings during the show,” comments David Fowler, the Executive Marketing Director of the SWCC Expo.
“Even more exciting,” Fowler adds, “is that Texas is set to award the first batch of cannabis licenses the week following our conference!”
Texas is widely considered to be one of the most lucrative emerging cannabis markets. The Lone Star State has a burgeoning cannabis industry that’s on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest U.S. markets.
“We’re on a mission to prove to the Texas region that the cannabis industry is a real industry employing people in everyday industries such as biotech, nutrition and health. It’s truly about furthering the movement to educate people about cannabis,” Fowler says.
