Innovative Publishing Company, Inc., the publisher of Cannabis Industry Journal has announced the return of the Cannabis Quality Conference (CQC), taking place October 16-18, 2023 at the Hilton in Parsippany, New Jersey. Presented by Cannabis Industry Journal, the CQC is a business-to-business conference and expo where cannabis industry leaders and stakeholders meet to build the future of the cannabis marketplace.
“New Jersey and the surrounding cannabis markets welcomed the CQC with open arms in 2022 and we’re excited to come back to North Jersey and expand on what we have built,” says Aaron Biros, editor of Cannabis Industry Journal and director of the Cannabis Quality Conference. “In addition to the sessions on cannabis quality, lab testing and infused products manufacturing, we will host sessions on the quality of business, strategic operational considerations and more.” The CQC is seeking abstracts for presentations and posters to be considered for the event.

In addition to the two full days of cannabis education and programming, pre-conference workshops designed to address safety and compliance in cannabis edibles will take place on October 16. Also new to this year’s event is a strategic co-location with the Food Safety Consortium (FSC) running at the same time and in the same space as the CQC, allowing for food safety and cannabis professionals to meet and share best practices.
“We are bringing two great conferences together under one roof,” says Rick Biros, president of Innovative Publishing and director of the Food Safety Consortium. “The Food Safety Consortium will continue its strategic meeting of the minds format, but we are complementing that with the practical, boots-on-the-ground Food Safety Hazards track. Co-location with the CQC allows attendees to take advantage of additional education on product testing and quality assurance in the burgeoning cannabis market, as well as preconference workshops delving into infused product safety and compliance that will appeal to both food safety and cannabis professionals.”
