“What makes a cannabis real estate venture fly or fail? It all comes down to experience -- really knowing the industry and understanding how all the constituents surrounding it intersect,” stated Robert Fireman, MariMed CEO. “We are looking forward to sharing MariMed’s insider tips and helping attendees connect with the right resources to succeed in this booming industry. Educating all the potential players and collaborating with a wide network of professionals brings out the best in everyone for successful projects and lays the groundwork for future programs.”
“We started the NEREJ Cannabis Real Estate Summit last year to help dispel misconceptions of how the cannabis industry operates and what its needs are, so that the related industries can work together more effectively,” stated NEREJ Director of Events Rick Kaplan. “This is not your typical real estate crowd. This Summit brings together professionals in real estate, law, insurance, construction, architecture, and finance, plus investors to get educated on the industry from experienced cannabis pros who have track records of success. It’s a great networking opportunity for people from various areas to connect and develop business relationships.”
