CannaCon, one of the cannabis industry’s premier networking and educational events, is coming to the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle next week on February 15-17.

The event promises hours upon hours of engagement with some of the industry’s brightest minds and most noteworthy pioneers, but this year — in addition to the regular lineup of expert speakers and educational panel discussions — tickets to CannaCon Seattle include entry to the first-ever CannaCon Career Fair, produced in partnership with Mac&Fulton Talent Partners.

Running from 10:20 am to 4:20 pm on Saturday, Feb. 17, the CannaCon Career Fair will offer everything a prospective cannabis worker might want to help get their foot in the door. The career fair will be a general mingling of cannabis employers and prospective employees. Company representatives will be there, searching the crowd for the right hire, and hopeful employees will have access to informational booths illuminating the many different cannabis career paths.

Career fair participants can expect to find:

  • Guidelines for job-searching in the cannabis industry
  • A resume writing workshop to help identify and beef up your qualifications for the cannabis space
  • The ability to hear from/speak with cannabis industry operators about their typical workdays
  • Information and presentations about pursuing a career in the cannabis industry
  • Explanation of ideal candidate traits and skills, complete with print-outs and questionnaire cards to help practice for the real deal.

All attendees to the CannaCon expo are invited to attend the career fair, which is conveniently timed for the final day of the three-day event so attendees won’t be missing the conference’s keynotes.

This year, keynote presentations will include Washington’s Governor Jay Inslee and Vincente Fox, the former President of Mexico. Gov. Inslee will speak on Thursday, Feb. 15 about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ act of rescinding of the Cole Memo and how Washington state will continue to stand by and expand its voter-approved, regulated cannabis industry; President Fox will speak on Saturday, Feb. 16 to the perils and downsides of the Drug War and the many advantages of ending prohibition.

Attendees will also have access to one of the most extensive and all-inclusive exhibition floors in the cannabis industry. With more than 400 exhibitors from around the country coming to Seattle this year, the networking opportunities alone should be game-changing for entrepreneurs and investors alike.

CannaCon Seattle kicks off in just over a week, so don’t wait to buy tickets — purchase now using the promotion code CANNACON30 and you will receive a 30 percent discount off your ticket price.
