Yauger explained that there are several annual football conventions, but the head coaches never walked around the convention hall. Coaches preferred to go alone to meet like-minded professionals rather than fight the convention audience.
Yauger wondered, “What is the cannabis equivalent of a head coach?” The answer was the director and the vice presidents, the decision makers, the leaders of the cannabis industry.
“Not many people in the world understand what it’s like to make an acquisition of more than a hundred million dollars, which is acquired with an acquisition of more than one hundred million dollars,” Yauger said.
“We wanted to bring all these people together in one place at a time and give them the opportunity to be together, live the day and be able to net with each other. Somewhere they are not walking around the trade fairs, being hit by the vendor in all directions, to have fun in a relaxing environment and be able to spend the day together, ”added Yauger.

Yauger confirmed that Lemonhaze intends to make the Cannabis Industry Executive Golf Invitational an annual event. This is an independent event MJBizCon, away from convention rooms to create a more intimate networking experience.
“It’s been an absolute blast, just to be able to talk to all these ladies and gentlemen who are playing and to hear the excitement that they are able to do something they have never been able to do before, to enter the same room. With others people who have the same challenges and the same things they have to deal with at work has been amazing, ”Yauger said.
