February, the coldest and shortest month, arrives next week and that means the beginning of trade show season for those of us in the cannabis industry.

Here at the Marijuana Business Association, we’ll be kicking off the month at the Cannabis Collaborative Conference (formerly known as the Creative Cannabis Conference) in Portland, Oregon on the 3rd and 4th of February. MJBA and MJBA Women’s Alliance are exhibiting at the show, and Morgan and I will both serve as moderators and panelists.

On Wednesday, February 3, I’ll moderate the 2:15 panel entitled, “Sidekicks are Superheros: Ancillary & Supporting Businesses within the Cannabis Marketplace.” I’ll have the pleasure of discussing the topic with panelists Paul Campbell of Leafly, Holly Alberti of Healthy Headie Lifestyle, Brandon Gallagher of Vuber Technologies, and Scott Lott of Click Simply.

On Thursday, February 4th, MJBA Women’s Alliance founder Morgan will be moderating the 2:15 panel, “Launching a Product or Service: The Process of Creating Powerful Brands. James Zachodni of DOPE Magazine, Randall Huft of Innovation Agency, and Devin Manuel of Click Simply.

And little later, at 3:15 on Thursday,  Morgan and I will participate as panelist on, “What Happens After CCC?: A Telltale of Five Industry Organizations.” Moderated by Aimee Shuman of 420 Swarm, our fellow panelists will include Bethany Moore of NCIA , Jocelyn Anderson of Women Grow, and Chris Carpenter of OCBC.

Less than two weeks later, Team MJBA will be packing up our tents and setting up camp at CannaCon. Taking place, February 18, 19 and 20 at Pier 91 in Seattle, this is the fourth CannaCon show for MJBA and MJBA Women’s Alliance, and we’ll have a big presence.  Not only are we media sponsors and exhibitors of CannaCon again this year, but both Morgan and I have the honor to serve as moderators and panelists of what has become the most important industry trade show in Washington.

If you have anything to do with the legal cannabis industry in Washington or Oregon, you will want to attend both CCC in Portland and CannaCon in Seattle this month. When you do, please stop by the MJBA and MJBA Women’s Alliance booths and say ‘Hi.”
