ANAHEIM, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CannPack West, North America’s largest cannabis packaging conference organized by Informa Markets – Engineering, today announced Lindsay Robinson, Executive Director at California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA), will headline Day 1 as the keynote speaker of the event, scheduled for August 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Robinson will deliver the address titled “State of the Cannabis Industry in California,” imparting insight drawn from her extensive background shaping cannabis policy.

Slated for August 10, Robinson will take the stage at 8:30 a.m. PDT, presenting attendees with executive insight into the economic opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for the cannabis sector in the US’s largest state economy, California. “The regulatory landscape for cannabis companies in California is incredibly complicated and dynamic, and is constantly evolving. Participating in Legislative and Regulatory policy reform can have a direct impact on packaging and labeling, product design, public safety requirements, and advertising,” said Lindsay Robinson, Executive Director, CCIA. “A deep understanding of the trends and key players influencing the economic landscape is critical to ensure the longevity of this dynamic industry—I look forward to analyzing the current state of this sector with industry professionals at CannPack West.”
The 2021 edition of the event is strategically designed to facilitate long-overdue in-person connection, continued education and deal-making. As the first large-scale event returning to California since the start of the pandemic, the upcoming CannPack West event, formerly known as Cannabis Packaging Summit, is partnering with North America’s premier packaging technology event, WestPack, and the largest annual plastics event in North America, Plastec West, in order to connect business owners, C-suite execs, directors, engineers, attorneys, and more in cannabis and surrounding industries to advance cannabis packaging in regards to materials, containers, labelers, design, and brand consultation.
While the cannabis industry continues to experience unprecedented growth, just as much importance is placed on the cannabis packaging market, valued at $101.48 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $297.51 billion by 2026. Commenting on this growth, Steve Everly, Group Event Director of CannPack West, stated: “We’re in the midst of a turning point for the cannabis packaging industry; sustainable and ethical business practices, plus the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape, dictate consumer spending habits. I am proud to reveal the conference agenda that our team has worked hard to produce. This year’s event is focused on helping cannabis product companies navigate the ever-changing cannabis packaging landscape and focus on the development and implementation of sustainable packaging materials and technology.”
