Tomorrow kicks off the National Marijuana Business Conference and Expo in Chicago, hosted by Marijuana Business Daily. I was originally going to attend the event but life got in the way. One thing that I was very much looking forward to was trying to attend the cruise that Women Grow is putting on. If you are attending the expo, you should really consider doing the cruise too. It's going to be very fun, and it will be a stellar networking opportunity. As far as I know tickets are still available, and they are also still accepting sponsors for the event. Below are more details, via the Eventbrite page:
Wheather Update: With floor to celing windows on all three floors we are in for a fabulous cruise no matter what the weather.
LIMITED Ticket Sales at the Dock: We will have a limited supply of tickets for $125 CASH at the dock. Please come early to ensure you get one.
Ahoy there! We're gathering the best and brightest in the cananbis industry for a sunset cruise to kick-off the Marijuana Business Conference and Expo.

You'll meet women and men at all different stages of their career in the cannabis industry. Many will be in the research phase, just learning more about opportunities, while still working day jobs. Others are starting up their own cannabis venture or ancillary business. You'll also meet cannabis business owners & investors who are well on their way. Watch the video to see for yourself.
Why should I attend?
Personal connections are the key to professional success. Through the wide variety of events offered to members of Women Grow, trustworthy business relationships sprout from the face-to-face interactions of our members.
Together we have more power. As the cannabis industry grows on a national and global scale, women have the opportunity to build a new American industry from inception and redefine the workplace to create environments in which we can flourish and define our own destiny, and cultivate the next generation of industry leaders.
How can I get the most out of networking events?
We recommend bringing business cards and a pen to take notes. If you don't have business cards, check out Moo for 10% off your first order (and your first order supports Women Grow). Watch our video on networking tips from Women Grow founding members.
Can I pay at the door?
We will have a limited number of tickets available for $125 CASH at the door. Please come early to get your spot!
Are tickets refundable or transferrable?
You may send a friend to attend in your place. Tickets are not refundable.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, as long as your ID matches the name your registered under. You may also show us your ticket on your mobile device. If you are giving your ticket to a colleague, please forward them the ticket to show us.
Will this event be held again?
This is a special one-time-only event. Women Grow holds a monthly networking event in Chicago. Make sure you're on the Women Grow mailing list to receive invitations.
Why do you charge for events?
Women Grow is funded by event proceeds and sponsors. We charge for our events so that Women Grow is a self-sustaining organization. If you are unable to afford an event, please contact the organizer to ask about volunteer opportunities.
