The 2018 Monterey Cannabis Summit is the first conference of its kind on the Central Coast to bring together the knowledge and expertise of cannabis professionals and business and community partners in California’s fastest growing region in the cannabis industry – which blends old school growing and “Big Ag”. On December 13th and 14th 2018, the Monterey County Cannabis Industry Association (MCCIA) hosted Summit takes place in the heart of Monterey at the Portola Hotel and Spa. MCCIA’s dedicated Board and staff aim to attract leaders and stakeholders in all aspects of the industry – from cultivators, state and local regulators, manufacturers, suppliers, agriculture, organics, investors and so on. The Summit is a two-day event featuring a tour of some of industry leaders facilities for early registrants, a cocktail reception, a luncheon with a featured keynote speaker, breakfast and four workshops delving into the most pressing cannabis issues facing the state and the region. The intent of the summit is to foster collaboration and growth by bringing together a vast array of professionals and enthusiasts from all aspects of the cannabis community. The 2018 Monterey Cannabis Summit will partner with, and directly follow, the Organic Grower Summit taking place in Monterey on December 12th and 13th. Launched by the Organic Produce Network (OPN) and California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), the Organic Grower Summit will bring organic growers, producers and processors to Monterey for two days of education, information and networking opportunities with their production supply chain and support service providers.?
