'Folio:' Names Cannabis Conference Directors ‘Top Women in Media’
CLEVELAND, OH & LAS VEGAS – APRIL 29, 2020 – Cannabis Conference Editorial Director Noelle Skodzinski and Director, Conference & Events Maria Miller have been selected as honorees in Folio: magazine’s “2020 Top Women in Media.” This prestigious media awards program highlights the best and brightest up-and-comers, entrepreneurs, change-makers, corporate champions, and industry trailblazers in the media industry.
Noelle Skodzinski, editorial director for Cannabis Conference (produced by GIE Media’s Cannabis Business Times, Cannabis Dispensary and Hemp Grower magazines), has been selected in the “Change-makers” group, comprised of women “who’ve successfully altered the course of their brands or the industry for the better.”
Skodzinski recently celebrated her 5-year anniversary at GIE Media on April 20, the day the company officially acquired Cannabis Business Times—the nationally award-winning trade publication that serves cannabis cultivators in North America. Skodzinski co-founded the Cannabis Business Times website and, in collaboration with the GIE Media team, launched the print publication in November 2015.
Maria Miller, director of conferences and events for Cannabis Conference at GIE Media, has been selected in the “Corporate Champions” group, comprised of women “who’ve steered their companies into new markets, new opportunities, new audiences and strong, measurable growth.”
Miller celebrated 22 years with GIE Media this past January and has been integral to the success of Cannabis Conference—the industry’s leading education and expo event for plant-touching cannabis businesses—since the event’s launch in March 2017. Cannabis Conference 2020 will take place Sept. 1-3, 2020, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas (www.cannabisconference.com).
“Noelle and Maria have been extremely effective at finding innovative and competitive solutions that bring the industry the highest level of education and exhibition the cannabis market has to offer,” said GIE Media’s Cannabis Conference Group Publisher Jim Gilbride. “They’re hyper-focused on putting our audiences first, and that’s reflected in the integrity and professionalism of our events and media. It’s a privilege to work with them every day—and I look forward to seeing all they’ll continue to accomplish in their already-successful careers.”
