Returning for a 3rd year, one of the most influential voices in the cannabis industry, Bruce Linton, will be speaking in a special “In Conversation With…” on Friday, May 29th, at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) on what’s next for this prolific entrepreneur, investor and business leader. CWCBExpo New York, taking place May 28–30, 2020 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, is the only event in the emerging tri-state area focused on the entire supply chain for the legalized cannabis industry including medical, adult use and industrial hemp.

“Our industry is evolving with growths and spurts that demand that even the most seasoned of entrepreneurs have their ear to the ground,” said Bruce Linton. “CWCBExpo, in its 7th year, continues to bring Wall Street investors and leaders in cannabis together. It’s the perfect venue to announce details of our next great adventure!”

Mr. Linton is Founder and former Chairman, CEO and Co-CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, formerly Tweed Marijuana Incorporated. Under his leadership Canopy Growth was the first cannabis producing company in North America to be listed on the TSX and NYSE. By the Summer of 2019 Canopy Growth ranked number one on the TSX30 with a market cap of over $20 billion.

Mr. Linton’s vast leadership roles and board member activity across a diversity of sectors was a huge influence for the success of Canopy Growth. Earning market support for capital raises of over $6 billion in public capital markets and private placements, the company funded capacity growth and opened new markets including a $5 billion CAD investment by Fortune 500 beverage company Constellation Brands.

Currently Mr. Linton holds the positions of: Executive Chairman, Vireo Health International, Inc.; Executive Chairman, Gage Cannabis Co.; Co-Chairman, Martello Technologies Group; Co-Founder, Ruckify; and Executive Chairman, Wolverine Partners Corp. He is also a Special Advisor with Better Choice Company, Director with MindMed and an active investor with SLANG Worldwide Inc. and OG DNA Genetics, Inc.

The comprehensive CWCBExpo New York conference program will also include seminars, panels and workshops that provide relevant, data-driven information and industry trends moving this emerging and opportunistic market forward, including a headline presentation on “Cannabis Capital Crossroads.”

The dynamic CWCBExpo New York expo floor has moved to the expansive third level of the Javits Center (Hall 3A), tripling its space for exhibits. The most innovative product, service and technology companies will showcase their solutions for the entire cannabis ecosystem.
