After a sold-out inaugural event in California, the most authoritative investor forum in the cannabis industry is making its East Coast debut in Miami Beach, Florida.
The first Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (IC3) drew investors and industry leaders to Silicon Valley where they gained critical insights into the fastest growing industry in North America. Cowen and Company projects legal marijuana sales will reach $50 billion annually by 2026, from an estimated $6 billion today. Marijuana is legal in some form in 29 states and Canada. Recreational use is legal in eight states, including the entire West Coast, and Canada is expected to legalize adult use in 2018. Public opinion in favor of legalization has reached record levels, and there is a growing movement within state legislatures and the U.S. Congress to end Prohibition.
MedMen, an industry leading cannabis management and investment firm, and IMN, a premier finance and investment conference organizer, have joined their expertise to bring a one-of-kind forum aimed at sophisticated investors seeking alternative asset classes and portfolio diversification. This event was created specifically with the needs of the institutional and accredited investor in mind.
