SXSW PanelPicker: Cannabusiness

The Forrest Four-Cast: August 14, 2019

So it’s no surprise that there’s a verdant, bumpercrop of PanelPicker ideas for the 2020 SXSW Cannabusiness track — more than 150 proposals that touch on equity and social justice, tech, women in cannabis, cultivation, commercialization, law, prohibition, culture and more. Check out some of the best ideas below.

These are just a few of the thousands of ideas that have been entered via the 2020 SXSW PanelPicker —speaking proposals cover everything from astrobiology to nanotechnology to zebras and everything in between. That’s where you come in! Sign in to your SXSW account (or create a new one) to vote and comment on the proposals that you think should be part of next year’s March Magic. But hurry because voting ends at 11:59 Pacific Time on Friday, August 23.

Play with the “Search” button on the left side of the interface to find (and vote for) other thought-provoking trends and themes in the PanelPicker include Business, Future Sex, Building Trust, Robots and Success.

About 10–20% of the proposals will be accepted as sessions for the March 2020 event. These sessions will be announced on the SXSW website in mid-October. Buy your badge now so you can be part of the massive learning, discovery, cross-industry networking and creativity that is South by Southwest.
