SALT, a leading global thought leadership forum, announced that ETF Managers Group (ETFMG), the thought leader and issuer behind the world’s largest cannabis ETF, MJ, will take on a leading content production role at this year’s flagship Las Vegas event. The firm will be the exclusive sponsor and curator of the first ever cannabis track taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 20.
The agenda will cover the business, banking, regulation, and innovation of cannabis, hemp, and CBD. At SALT Las Vegas last year, ETFMG led the “New Frontier of Cannabis Investing” panel on the Nuveen Stage, in addition to hosting two exclusive thought leadership events with their partner in education, Canopy Growth Corporation.
“We are proud to partner with one of the most forward-looking firms in the financial space,” said SALT founder Anthony Scaramucci. “As the cannabis business and the regulatory environment both mature, investors are looking for trusted information. Together with ETFMG, we aim to educate delegates about this complex and increasingly competitive market.”
In addition to managing the production of the cannabis stage during the conference, ETFMG will host a second annual invitation-only “Legends and Leaders” cocktail event at Bellagio. This will be complemented by a reprisal of its “Cannabis Innovator Breakfast” at Lago, this year’s topic and featured speaker(s) will be announced closer to the May event.
“We are excited to return to SALT with the opportunity to produce the first ever cannabis content track and interactive experience allowing delegates and media alike to immerse themselves in this global investment theme,” said ETFMG’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tricia Vanderslice. “The cannabis track will cross industries and borders unveiling a lineup of featured speakers that are paving the way in this rapidly evolving industry.”
