Southwestern Ontario’s Premier Cannabis Conference Returns To London Ontario For A Second Year Running
In Partnership with The Western Fair District, Cannabis Wiki is Thrilled to Bring the Second Annual Cannabis Conference to Southwest Ontario on June 14th & 15th, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONDON ONTARIO - JANUARY 17, 2022 – For the second consecutive year Cannabis Wiki and The Western Fair District have partnered to bring Southwestern Ontario’s regulated cannabis industry and community to the Forest City. Organizers are again planning on hundreds of exhibitors and attendees gathering to move the industry and the region’s economy forward, while continuing to break the stigma of cannabis.
“After a higher-than-expected level of success last year we are excited to be back in 2023! From our location partners to our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and panellists we will once again pack the itinerary with value, diversity and high level business networking. This is an event where the agriculture and cannabis industry connects and deals get made,” said Derrick Burney, CEO and founder Cannabis Wiki.
2022 Conference Highlights
Last year’s event featured over 60 expert speakers from Canada and the United States, welcomed dozens of budtenders, retailers, brands, licensed producers and more from Southwestern Ontario, and beyond, and accommodated hundreds of attendees from London and the surrounding area.
Highlights included a fully-attended Women + Cannabis Workshop, a panel on ‘Diversity & Inclusion in Cannabis: Removing Barriers’ that unabashedly and earnestly explored challenges and solutions, and a networking event hosted by Greenway Greenhouse at the Old Courthouse in downtown London.
What To Expect in 2023
This year’s conference will attract a wide range of industry speakers, workshop facilitators, podcasters, journalists, retailers, budtenders, post-secondary cannabis educators, cannabis entrepreneurs, licensed producers, brands, influencers, regulatory leaders and more. Beyond the over-the-top education value from the thematic programming of the conference will be another action-packed exhibitor’s hall. Cannabis Wiki & The Western Fair District look to build on last year’s success by attracting even more diverse exhibitors representing the local, national and international cannabis industry.
“Without our event partners at Cannabis Wiki, our organization would not have had the same first-year achievement with this new agri-business industry event. We are buoyed by the exhibitor, sponsor, and attendee response thus far for this niche event and are excited about its potential to support and grow this new agri-industry in Canada and beyond.” Reg Ash, CEO, Western Fair Association”
The conference will take place on June 14 and 15, 2023 in London Ontario at the Western Fair District.
We’re proud to welcome early supporters on board for 2023 including: Count Canna, CannaNavigators, Cannabis Marketspace, Djot, EXKA Inc., Frankie Smoke, Hyde Advisory, Independent Retail Cannabis Collective (IRCC), Merrco, Mientzu, RH Accelerator, Shatterizer, Weedpanion, with many more to come!
