“This June, no other show in the Northeast will offer the depth and breadth of information and products for these industries expected to top $20 billion in the next three years,” said Scott Giannotti, Managing Director of the CWCBExpo events. “Our platform will continue to provide valuable education about all aspects of the cannabis plant, as we’ve done for the last four years, but this year we’ve taken a more comprehensive approach to learning that will take our attendees from A-to-Z as well as added a strong emphasis on industrial hemp due to Governor Cuomo’s commitment to making hemp a $1 billion industry in our state. It’s a very exciting time for New York.”
