The Clubhouse in Wainscott will once again host the Hamptons Cannabis Expo on Saturday from 1 to 8 p.m., with a V.I.P. dinner and after-party at 8:30. The expo aims to connect would-be cannabis entrepreneurs with experts in the industry.
Exhibitors will talk about various aspects of the industry before Cedric Haynes, the associate vice president of public affairs for WeedMaps and the event's M.C., kicks off a program of discussions at 3:30 p.m. that will include a "land acknowledgement" by Chenae Bullock, who is managing director of the Shinnecock Nation's Little Beach Harvest cannabis business.
Tremaine S. Wright, chairwoman of the New York State Office of Cannabis Management, will be the keynote speaker at 3:45 p.m. Panelists throughout the afternoon will focus on advocacy, lending, accounting, insurance, investments, and psychedelics.
Tickets cost $200 and are available online at canxpo.com through tomorrow. Tickets for the after-party at 8:30 are an additional $200.
The event's organizers note that there will be no self-parking at the Clubhouse on Saturday. Attendees have been encouraged to car-pool or use ride-hailing services. Limited valet parking will be available for $40.
