Trump, the Business, Is Hosting a Cannabis Real Estate Seminar
The New York Real Estate Journal will be hosting its first cannabis-focused summit on May 4 in the Big Apple. Here’s the funny part: It’s being held at Trump SoHo, one of the Trump family’s premier properties.
A Trump property hosting a cannabis conference wouldn’t be such a big thing if the president had distanced himself from his business interests while in office. Instead, Trump has woven his hotel brands into his presidency, spending more time in Trump buildings than the White House. His exclusive Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, has become the weekend West Wing. So whether intended or not, the fact that a Trump-branded hotel is hosting a cannabis conference—well, it has at least symbolic significance.
The NYREJ, a sister company of the New England Real Estate Journal, is the largest commercial real estate media company in the world. It covers six Northeastern states and has been in business since 1963.
Ag-Tech company AmeriCann Inc. which is developing sustainable, state-of-the-art medicinal cannabis cultivation properties, will be the title presenter at the event.
AmeriCann’s president and CEO, Tim Keogh, will be a panelist and will meet one-on-one with attendees and investors interested in participating in the cannabis industry. He will also discuss the company and the Massachusetts Medical Cannabis Center, per a company news release.
