Benzinga and New Frontier Data to host cannabis investor forum on Latin American opportunities in Miami January 2019

Benzinga, a leading financial media outlet, announced today that it will host the second Cannabis Capital Conference presented by New Frontier Data in Miami January 15-16, 2019.

The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference is the premier gathering of cannabis entrepreneurs and investors in North America. No other conference offers the level of access and seamlessness of interaction between entrepreneurs building future billion-dollar cannabis enterprises and the investors whose capital will make that happen.

"We are excited to host this first-of-its-kind forum,” said Giadha Aguirre de Carcer, founder and CEO of New Frontier Data. “As Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and other nations make material moves both domestically and regionally, established North American cannabis companies should pay attention and begin responsible and open conversations to ensure the now global legal cannabis market evolves in a healthy and transparent manner.

"The partnership between New Frontier Data and Benzinga keeps investors and operators informed with access to real-time data and targeted regional events like the Cannabis Capital Conference, which aim to accelerate the growth of the multi-billion-dollar fintech and legal cannabis industries,” said Aguirre de Carcer.

The first Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference offered entrepreneurs and investors an incredible opportunity to network, make deals, and learn from influencers, policymakers and trailblazers. The event sold out with 600 attendees and saw top cannabis CEOs like Aphria’s Vic Neufeld and others address the future of the industry.

Leading investors like CNBC’s Tim Seymour, Jon Najarian, New Cannabis Ventures founder Alan Brochstein and Moses Ventures managing member Danny Moses will speak about topics like the latest opportunities for investment in cannabis alongside top cannabis CEOs.

Benzinga is the go-to source for investors who need the latest news in the cannabis sector, and frequently breaks exclusive coverage on celebrity cannabis entrepreneurs and commentary from leading political and business figures.

Tickets for the event are on-sale and going fast. Entrepreneurs and those interested in investing in cannabis can purchase tickets here. Investors can qualify for free passes by emailing [email protected].
