SXSW for Cannabis? [Comedy Event Coming Up]

1st National Cannabis Business, Education & Entertainment Convention

There’s an exciting new cannabis entertainment convention, which has been likened to a South By Southwest (SXSW) Fest for the marijuana industry. It’s being put on by cannabis technology solution provider Enlighten, and a Seattle-based data analytics company Lemonhaze.

The event will feature comedy by Doug Benson, a comedic legend, as headliner, and will combine a major networking event for the cannabis industry together with performances from some the world’s most recognized entertainers. This event hopes to be for Cannabis what SXSW has been for technology, pairing innovation and a hub of influence with fun and education.

The Lemonhaze Cannabis & Comedy Convention, taking place at the newly refurbished Tacoma Dome, on October 25th and 26th, 2018.

The Lemonhaze Cannabis & Comedy Convention will be the largest I-502 convention in the Pacific Northwest, with an expected audience of 5,000 Cannabis industry members ranging from producers to processors and retailers as well as ancillary support businesses. There will be free continuing education workshops as well as panels  that include topics of creating your cannabis brand, investing in marijuana, banking, women’s leadership in the cannabis industry and vaping technology.
