Hosted by the Green Market Report, the cannabis industry’s premier financial news organization, the one-day event will feature exclusive information on finding jobs in the cannabis industry, building a national cannabis brand, insight into the business of vapes, the pricing of hemp ahead of a futures market, investing in women-led cannabis companies and important updates for the Chicago market.

“Green Market Report has seen the early signs that Illinois will be a major force in the cannabis industry” said Green Market Media Co-founder and CEO, Debra Borchardt. “Instead of waiting until after it happens, we want to be a part of the beginning. This conference will bring together the companies that see the promise of Chicago’s cannabis future and the residents and investors that will make it a success.”
The keynote interview will explore Miller and the SLANG team’s track record of best selling brands, global distribution and strategic partnerships and the future for brands in the industry. SLANG Worldwide, the leading portfolio of cannabis consumer packaged goods, sells some of the best performing cannabis products in the US’ largest legal markets and has worldwide distribution including 12 US states.
“As Illinois voters continue to support full cannabis legalization, the size of the market already makes it one of the larger growth opportunities in the industry,” stated Tim Seymour of Seymour Asset Management & CNBC. “I am very excited to be talking to some of top companies and leaders in the state at the Green Market Summit in Chicago on May 7th .”
Peter Miller is a cannabis industry veteran and was the co-founder of Mettrum Health Corp., which, in 2017, was sold to Canopy Growth Corporation for aggregate consideration of approximately $430 million.
