Dia Simms, CEO of BRN Group, and former president of Combs Enterprises, will keynote.
MJBizConNEXT Direct is the only conference laser focused on what’s next in the cannabis industry. Exclusively designed to bring professionals together in a state-of-the-art online environment to learn, discuss, network and chart the future of the industry as it seeks to emerge stronger than ever from these uncertain times.
