San Francisco – On the heels of Lift Toronto 2023, which took place June 1-3, gathering a robust audience from across the cannabis industry and community for education, exhibits and top-tier networking, Lift Events & Experiences announces a game-changing new partnership and key enhancements to its upcoming U.S. debut.

Continuing its mission to “lift the cannabis industry across North America,” Lift will soon make its way to a key location in the stateside legalization movement. The team behind the events recognizes a great responsibility to both new and returning audiences, as well as to California’s deep-rooted cannabis legacy.

Lift San Francisco will include the Lift Expo, scheduled for Thursday, August 3 and Friday, August 4, 2023. The Lift Cannabis Business Conference (previously scheduled during a pre-show period prior to the expo) will take place Thursday, August 3, as a combined event with a new Investment Summit presented in partnership with The Arcview Group.

Recognized as a pioneer in cannabis and hemp industry investment content, The Arcview Group has been a trusted global leader for over ten years and a nexus for investors, companies, entrepreneurs and community. Together, the new partners prioritize social justice and responsibility, with The Arcview Group providing a broad spectrum of programs and services across a vertically integrated organization. The Arcview Investment Summit will take place alongside the Lift Cannabis Business Conference, combining two synergistic education opportunities, including enhanced investment-centered content for audiences across the cannabis and hemp industries.


“Lift is honored to welcome our new partners, The Arcview Group,” says Lift Events & Experiences Portfolio Lead, Lindsay Roberts. “Through extensive research and the expert counsel of our North American Advisory Board, we know that investment content is a ‘must’ for serving Lift’s California and U.S.-wide audience. There is no better source for this crucial, timely information than The Arcview Group.”

“We are excited to work with Lift. Having produced 50 investor conferences over the last 13 years, it’s important that investors, entrepreneurs, and operators can experience our unique content at major industry events,” says The Arcview Group CEO Jeffrey Finkle. “Partnering with Lift on a combined conference in San Francisco will help us realize that goal.”.

The combined Lift Cannabis Business Conference and Arcview Investment Summit will be followed by the buzzworthy new Taste at Lift: Cannabis Food & Beverage Experience on Friday, August 4. All Lift San Francisco educational and expo activities will take place at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center and will be complemented by Lift’s famously irresistible atmosphere and best-in-class networking opportunities.
