Feb. 27, 2020 – Cannabis Industry Institute, a leading provider of employee training and informational resources in the cannabis industry, announces the return of The Infused Products Conference, the only conference devoted exclusively to the infused products sector. The event is the premier destination for extractors, edible manufacturers, concentrate manufacturers, extraction scientists, investors, dispensary staff or anyone eager to learn more about cannabis infusion and extraction.
The Infused Products Conference 2020 takes place May 14 and 15 at Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado. The 85-acre luxury property is located 10 minutes away from Denver International Airport, making it a convenient location for attendees flying in from across the country and around the world.
The two-day event will give attendees the information they need to manage the challenges and opportunities they face every day. Breakout sessions give a boots-on-the-ground view of issues like procurement, contract manufacturing and crisis communications. General sessions offer a deep dive into topics such as compliance, packaging and emerging manufacturing trends. When not attending sessions, attendees can network with vendors and service providers in the expo hall. As the only cannabis conference geared solely to infused products, attendees can expect to find expo booths that cater solely to their extraction and infusion needs.
IPC 2020 will also feature two new competitive events. During the Cannabis Innovation Pitch Competition, entrepreneurs will vie for $30,000 in cash investment and a chance to turn their infused product idea into reality. Competitors will pitch their product concepts to a panel of investors, who will award $25,000 to the winner. The conference also includes a gameshow where audience members can watch two teams compete to create the best plan for a new product launch.
As one of the first states in the nation to legalize recreational cannabis, Colorado has long been the epicenter of the cannabis industry for nearly a decade. Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center allows attendees to experience the Centennial State in style. Equipped with a spa, an arcade, and multiple restaurants and pools, Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center provides conference-goers a hard-earned respite after a long day of networking. Visitors can enjoy unparalleled views of the Rocky Mountains and the Mile High City from the eight-story-high atrium window in the venue’s Grand Lodge.
The market for infused products continues to grow since The Infused Products Conference debuted in Los Angeles in 2019. MarketWatch reports that from 2018 to 2022, the cannabis-infused edibles market is expected to grow by a compound annual growth rate of more than 25 percent, resulting in a growth of $17.27 billion. IPC 2020 is an opportunity for members of this diverse and rapidly expanding field to grow and learn together.
Early registration for IPC 2020 costs $299 per person through February 29. Attendees who purchase registration before May 1 receive $100 off the regular price of $499.
