POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and DELTA, British Columbia, March 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering hemp and cannabis stocks releases a snapshot looking at how companies are expanding their footprint and vertical integrated operations. In parallel, management is on the road, spreading the word about this rapidly expanding sector with a new sense of confidence.
More and more high profile executives from the beverage, pharmaceutical, media and finance sectors are joining cannabis operations and many are using the numerous cannabis/investor events taking place in March and April to discuss their recently closed acquisitions, and how that will impact their companies and the cannabis industry.
John Cochran, Chief Operating Officer of Harvest Health & Recreation, ( CSE: HARV ) ( OTCQX: HRVSF ), will deliver the Welcome Keynote, “Tapping the Beverage Market Boom,” at Cannabis Conference 2019, April 1-3, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“While alcohol and cannabis differ in many ways, the regulatory framework and consumer trends shed light on the future of the plant in this country and around the world,” said Cochran, who is the former CEO of multistate cannabis company Loudpack Inc., former CEO of Pabst Brewing Company, and former President and COO of Fiji Water Company. “I’m excited to share the lessons I’ve learned after decades at some of the largest beverage and cannabis companies in the world with attendees of Cannabis Conference.”
Harvest is a vertically integrated cannabis company with licenses for more than 140 retail, cultivation, manufacturing and distribution facilities across 12 states. In his Keynote, Cochran will also explore Harvest’s value chain and frameworks for considering profitable, scalable solutions and the importance of communicating those shifts to investors.
