Due to the coronavirus and the Illinois plan to reopen the economy, the face-to-face Cannabis Quality Conference & Expo is postponed until October of 2021. For 2020, we are launching the Cannabis Quality Virtual Conference Series in its place: every Tuesday, starting September 8 through November 10, we’ll host two presentations and two Tech Talks, followed by a panel discussion. The series will culminate with a post-election analysis to take place November 10, 2020.
This will still be an interactive, virtual experience, where attendees can ask questions and get in touch with speakers.
Plan to Attend
Registration for attendees is complimentary and is underwritten by our sponsors. We look forward to seeing everyone virtually there.
