The annual Cash Crop Today Investor and Business Resource Summit in Beverly Hills, California hosted a diverse crowd comprised of investors, businessmen, and entrepreneurs seeking industry knowledge in connection to the burgeoning cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The summit featured attendees of all age groups and offered them the opportunity to directly interact with some of the most prominent pioneers of the industry.
Unique insights and networking opportunities were plentiful during the two-day event. Cash Crop Today specifically designed the summit to allow the opportunity for our guests and session speakers to interact often and directly, without the offering of a product or service. The audience was comprised of everyone from distinguished CEO’s, cultivators, distributors and individuals interested in starting their own enterprise involving some facet of the industry.
The Kings of Cannabis & Hemp Charity Poker Tournament was held on the last night of the summit where non-profit group NDICA (National Diversity and Inclusion Cannabis Alliance) received the grand prize winnings to continue to expand upon their efforts to create social equity, social justice, and diversity in the cannabis industry.
By the end of the summit, everyone in attendance had gained crucial information on the industry that could be translated into something useful for the future advancement of investments or their business. Cash Crop Today Media would like to give a special thanks to our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for helping to make the summit a success.
