President Vicente Fox to Keynote the Country’s Most Influential Cannabis Trade Show


The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) announces that former President of Mexico Vicente Fox will be the keynote speaker for its flagship event, the Cannabis Business Summit & Expo. The most influential cannabis business trade show in the U.S., NCIA’s annual event is the industry’s only national trade show hosted by the industry’s only national trade association representing the interests of legitimate, legal cannabis businesses.

Fox served as President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, and since his presidency has become a notable proponent for a legal, regulated cannabis industry, actively supporting cannabis legalization in Mexico and the United States. Once considered an unlikely advocate for cannabis, the former conservative leader of Mexico began speaking on the record in favor of legalization in 2011, attributing his support of cannabis policy reform to Mexico’s escalating problems with drug violence and corruption.

An award-winning event, the Cannabis Business Summit & Expo brings together the cannabis industry’s brightest minds for three days of high-value, curated educational programming and unparalleled business-to-business networking. This year’s event is host to over 80,000 square feet of sold out expo floor featuring the latest cannabis innovations and technologies. The industry’s best companies and services for cultivation, infused product manufacturing, retail and purchasing, wholesale, start-ups, and investors all gather at NCIA’s flagship event to buy and sell. It brings together industry leaders pioneering innovation in every aspect of the cannabis economy.

NCIA’s Cannabis Business Summit & Expo 2017 will be held at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, CA, June 12-14, 2017. NCIA’s 4th annual event is expected to sell out.
