The Marcum MicroCap Conference is an annual highlight on the investment community calendar. Since its launch in 2012, this event has become a nationally recognized forum for publicly traded companies with less than $500 million in market capitalization to network with fund managers and high net worth investors who focus on small cap equities. More than 2,000 participants from all segments of the microcap market participate each year, including senior management, finance and legal executives, venture and lower middle-market private equity investors, institutional investors, directors, investment bankers, buy- and sell-side analysts, and service providers to the microcap marketplace.
In 2017, the Marcum MicroCap Conference will be held June 15-16 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. As in past years, this event will consume all public meeting spaces and conference rooms of the hotel to deliver a jam-packed agenda over the course of two days.

Law360, New York (January 13, 2017, 4:08 PM EST) -- Marijuana is illegal under federal criminal law. Notwithstanding the federal ban, 23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana. Additionally, every issuer that intends to raise capital from investors for a marijuana-related business must provide a list of risk factors relating to the industry and current legal atmosphere, including informing investors that the issuer may be unable to repay the investors based on the current laws.
