FACES HCM at the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo
FACES HCM was very excited to be a part of the 2016 Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.
The November event was sold out, with around 10,000 people attending. That’s up from 4,000 last year and says volumes about how the legal cannabis industry has matured and grown.
We were very impressed by the high caliber, as well as the high-capitalization rates, of the companies represented. There were a lot of technology and equipment firms in attendance, as well as agricultural lighting groups, food organizations and other companies essential to this rapidly-expanding market.
For our part, FACES partnered with MJ Freeway, the pioneering cannabis compliance software firm, and had a well-attended display in the back of one of the halls. That space provided us a quiet place, where many people came by to talk with us about their management and HR needs in this unique industry.
Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without a happy hour; and ours at the Bellagio – which we put together with Nerve Cannabis Consulting – was a crowded and fun event.
Thanks to everyone who came by to chat with us. We’re looking forward to seeing you again – as well as making new friends and contacts – at future conferences.
