David Thal and Shane Penn Attend the Largest Cannabis Conference, MJBizCon

The Marijuana Business Conference (MJBizCon) is the largest cannabis conference in the world and invites cannabis professionals to network around one of the hottest topics in business today. David Thal, a Principal Chemist, and Shane Penn, an Account Executive, represented Vitale Scientific Associates (VSA) at this year’s conference. 

The MJBizCon program is put together by MJBizDaily and annually held in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2018, the MJBizCon marked it’s 7th year. This conference is a “must-attend” as it’s the largest cannabis conference and has doubled in size over the last 3 years. As this huge conference continues to grow, it’s the prime opportunity to bring together all aspects of the cannabis industry and one of the most prominent ways professionals are able to extend their network. Industry professionals such as sellers, growers, manufacturers, soil producers, processors, and many more commingle around innovation and emerging platforms across the world of cannabis.

David Thal and Shane Penn represented VSA, which focuses on bringing quality management systems into the processing facilities and laboratories that are currently testing, or plan to develop a testing program for, cannabis and hemp. These services help clients with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certification and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), as well as guiding clients in the implementation of quality management systems.
