Oregon’s #1 Cannabis Business Event Begins Saturday Night!
The Oregon Marijuana Business Conference (OMBC) is coming back to Ashland for another information-filled conference on November 19th at the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites. This will be the OMBC’s fourth event in Ashland after three sold-out successful conferences.
As the Medford Mail Tribune reported, the OMBC is THE place to be if you are in the cannabis industry, or are thinking of joining:
A Who’s Who of the state’s marijuana industry will converge on the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites this weekend for a little bit of play and a lot of networking at the latest installment of the Oregon Marijuana Business Conference.
Dozens of exhibitors — from growers and cannabis shops to legal and business professionals — will come together to learn about their fast-evolving industry and how they can better position themselves as it grows.
Saturday events revolve primarily around networking and socializing, with a VIP reception headlined by musician, actor, writer and comedian Henry Rollins, who is the keynote speaker, and an after-party show Sunday at the Brickroom with Oakland, California, hip-hop group Hieroglyphics Souls of Mischief.
The December 1st Deadline Looms Large
With Oregon Medical Marijuana Program growers, processors and retailers forced to notify the Oregon Health Authority about their intentions to stay medical or move into the OLCC-regulated recreational market by December 1st, the OMBC is returning to Ashland at an important time. With Southern Oregon an important region for some of the best sustainable, outdoor cannabis in the world, Ashland is a perfect spot for the Oregon cannabis community to convene, network and organize.
The OMBC will certainly cover Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) recreational regulations, medical laws, technology and branding, taxes, and testing regulations. OLCC Executive Director Steve Marks will be on hand, as well as a few state regulators, who will present the latest information and take burning questions from the audience. Oregon State Senator Floyd Prozanski will discuss legislative developments and take part in an onstage interview that will provide attendees with an important opportunity to have their issues heard. And you won’t want to miss the energetic and charismatic Henry Rollins as he will be delivering the keynote address, bringing his unique, socially-conscious message to Ashland.
