This Friday and Saturday at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, thousands of cannabis businesses, entrepreneurs and advocates will come together to hold the second annual New West Summit. This gathering looks to empower those individuals who believe cannabis is the new way of the world, with healing properties like nothing we’ve ever seen and enough growth potential to save our floundering economy. HERB will be front and center at the event, with our own booth, looking to help spread the word and educate those new to the cannabis industry.
Why the New West Summit
Inspired by an old saying from the 1800’s about “going west” to pursue new dreams and develop new lands, today, many believe the west is becoming the forefront for ending cannabis prohibition.
Jim McAlpine, the mastermind behind the 420 Games, Power Plant Gym and SnowBomb.com, began the summit with the idea of bringing like-minded individuals from the cannabis arena together. After just one year, this event has become the place to be for any and all cannabis crusaders.
The New West Summit focuses on technological advances and the future of the cannabis industry. The event allows people from different areas of the market to meet and great, in an efficient and effective manner.
By cutting out many of the frills seen at most summit gatherings, industry newcomers are able to learn about what is most important for their business or program, without wasting time.
This year’s keynote speaker is Richard Branson, the founder of Virginia Galactic and explorer of all things groundbreaking. Cullen Raichart of GreenBroz will also be in attendance, accompanied by the iconic Steve DeAngelo from Harborside Health Center, Susan Bennett who is the voice of SIRI, Jason Belzer from Forbes, Lori Schwartz of StoryTech and Fiona Ma of the California State Board of Equalization.

This business-minded gathering is the ideal place to meet and great those high-level executives who have the power to hire new talent and expose them to a world many only imagine.
Business leaders from Google, Apple, Salesforce and Linkedin will all be circling the crowds, looking for up and coming entrepreneurs who want their shot at making a change in the cannabis industry.
The professional environment helps others in the business understand the importance of elevating in the industry. Many of the speakers will be holding Question and Answer sessions, where individuals will have the opportunity to ask the things they’ve been dying to know, as well as gain some valuable knowledge about what the new-age, business-savvy industry expects of cannabis entrepreneurs.
