“Cannabis Industry Upside” on New England Businesses
Tuesday, September 22, 2020 – 11:00 AM
New England businesses are either stable or contracting, while the growing cannabis industry represents a substantial opportunity to benefit from this industry’s expansive appetite for a wide range of products and business services. Some of these ancillary services include legal cannabis cultivation, testing, processing, distribution, and retail. They’re driving laboratory, business services, packaging, warehousing, logistics, real estate, and other businesses, including financial, accounting, legal and other professional and advisory services. Expanding cannabis sales now exceed $700 million annually in Massachusetts alone, with continuing rapid growth.
The Forum has invited an exceptional panel of experts to lend their knowledge and contemporary expertise to this Webinar discussion about the burgeoning impact of the cannabis industry on the New England business Community. Our panel includes:

Why A Webinar?
We would prefer to announce another live BVF breakfast program for September allowing attendees to interact with our growing number of followers and new quests, while being able to talk directly with our speakers and panel members. In the spirit of moving forward in the face of COVID, we have developed an interim solution for September, by way of webinar Zoom Meeting technology with plans to return to Bryant in December based on the University’s compliance rules in effect at that time.
