SUMMIT, N.J. and SMITH FALLS, ON, April 25, 2019 – ETF Managers Group (ETFMG), the issuer behind the world’s largest cannabis ETF, MJ (NYSE: MJ), is partnering with Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC), the world’s largest diversified cannabis and hemp company, to host an exclusive thought leadership breakfast at the Bellagio Hotel on May 9 at 7:45 a.m. PDT. The morning event takes place during the SALT Conference in Las Vegas and will give the first 100 attendees to RSVP a unique look behind the curtain of the booming global cannabis industry.

Sam Masucci, CEO of ETFMG and featured speaker on cannabis investing at SALT, will join visionary and CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, Bruce Linton, in a fireside chat followed by a live Q&A.

“Since the launch of MJ a year and a half ago, we have focused on cultivating relationships with global cannabis experts allowing us to effectively educate the investing public on this high growth industry,” says Masucci. “The week at SALT is all about thought leadership and it is only natural to host an innovator event that could further unlock the cannabis discussion. I can think of no one better to do so with than Bruce Linton and Canopy Growth Corporation.”

The global cannabis industry is rapidly evolving, and as such both ETFMG and Canopy Growth Corporation keep education at the forefront of their trailblazing efforts and daily strategy.

Those who attend the Cannabis Innovator Breakfast will get the rare opportunity to hear directly from Bruce on his outlook for global cannabis, what’s next, regulation, celebrity partnerships and more.

“Cannabis markets are emerging around the world, presenting a rare opportunity for investors and entrepreneurs alike. Along with Sam, I’m looking forward to sharing the insights I’ve gained by building the world’s leading cannabis business,” said Bruce Linton.

Under the leadership of Mr. Linton, Canopy Growth Corporation has seen many firsts that have paved the way for what the global cannabis landscape is today. If you are attending the SALT Conference and are interested in attending the Cannabis Innovator Breakfast, please register at
