And thus, the NCIA’s Cannabis Business summit ends. The convention was characterised by many educational events and an exhibition where suppliers showcased the most recent solutions for growing cannabis.
The first day of the show
During the first day, seminars and workshop were held, during which attendees could expand their knowledge on everything related to the cannabis industry, and the exhibition started.
Additionally, visitors could participate in tours to indoor facilities, grow rooms and dispensaries, to have a more practical look at what the actual cannabis industry is capable of.
The second day
The second day kicked off with a conversation between Bruce Linton, former Canopy Growth co-CEO, and Seth Adler. The talk was very interesting and filled with funny moments and interesting perspectives on different aspects of the thriving cannabis industry.
Automation was one of the trending topics during the exhibition, as this is the key aspect to achieve efficiency in any horticulture operation, and cannabis is no exception.

Next year, the NCIA’s Cannabis Business Summit will be held in San Francisco, where maybe the heat will be a bit more forgiving.
