DENVER – CannabisNewsWire (“CNW”), an information service specializing in cannabis, today announces its partnership with New West Summit (NWS5), one of the leading conferences in cannabis technology. The two-day event will return to San Francisco on Oct. 10 – 11, 2019.
This year, the chosen conference venue will be the Bespoke Event Center, which is nestled in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. Guests will enjoy fabulous city views, stunning architecture and a location within walking distance to iconic locations like Dragon Gate and the San Francisco Bay. This memorable venue is fitting for such a memorable event.
Known as THE cannabis tech conference, New West Summit is a carefully curated experience. There will be over 100 speakers, including Killer Mike, GRAMMY award-winning artist; Alicia Silverstone, NYT best-selling author; and Paul Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Pantry Food Co. There will also be more than 50 exhibitors available for guests to explore, networking events to foster long-term business relationships, as well as the Leafwire Pitch Slam, which involves cannabis start-up companies competing in front of industry professionals for a cash prize.
