What’s On at the CSE

The CSE is delighted to be returning to MJBizCon , the world’s largest cannabis business conference, taking place in Las Vegas from November 28 to December 1. The annual event, now in its 12th year, features more than 1,400 exhibitors, including many CSE issuers, and more than 30,000 cannabis industry executives.

The CSE is a sponsor of the upcoming Captains of Industry awards ceremony, presented by the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp (“ATACH”) at the Las Vegas Country Club on November 29. The list of honourees includes leading cannabis industry figures such as Nancy Whiteman (Wana Brands), Sean Knutsen (Boveda Inc.), and Wanda James (Simply Pure).

The CSE team recently travelled all the way Down Under for the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Sydney, Australia, a trade show and conference featuring mining companies, service providers, and expert speakers. The trip also provided an opportunity to connect with local sources of capital and support issuers who are conducting outreach in the country. Mining has been central to the CSE since its earliest days, and the Exchange is proud to be helping mining entrepreneurs on the other side of the world achieve their capital market goals.
