5th Annual Growers Luncheon

5th Annual Growers Luncheon

These are the brightest minds in cannabis growth, sharing experiences, best practices and goodwill amongst growers. And this camaraderie will come in handy as the push for industry standardization grows. They’ll talk about a year of challenges, adjusting to regulations, and offer insight into how Health Canada can adjust its role to promote better growing and cannabis quality. Many relationships were forged among growers last year, and it’s not far-fetched to see a future advocacy group forming over the lunch table.

Presented by:

Beyond The Grass Ceiling Cannabis Without Limits (Networking Breakfast)

Separate Ticketed Event.

In a business where the female plant is queen, it’s ironic that gender bias would exist at all. But an industry that continues to write its own rules has an opportunity to reject the “boys club” mentality and reward the contribution of women, tangibly through pay-equity and other issues, and attitudinally. This networking session is a coffee-fueled think-tank on how to facilitate the full participation of women in our workplaces.

Join our trained facilitators through a “pro-active solution-based” workshop designed to gather the collective wisdom of the room and generate applicable solutions for change. Helping to create a workplace where women are encouraged to apply and when engaged can participate fully. This networking breakfast allows female cultivators and entrepreneurs to share their experiences, challenges and successes with others in the cannabis business. There are inspirational stories to be heard, and relationships to forge.

The Cannabis Investment Breakfast: Plugging Your Portfolio Into a Manic Market

Separate Ticketed Event.

Yes, there’ve been growing pains, but mostly there’s been growth, and busy – you might even say caffeinated – market activity. This breakfast session will offer market analysts who’ll make sense of a year in which raised capital doubled to more than $3.2 billion, while merger-and-acquisition deals almost tripled in number. These experts will analyze where this could lead, how the state-by-state rush to legalization in the U.S. will affect our commerce, and how the push-and-pull between big-players and small-players will play out. What new investment paths are the most promising? Is the big money in supply or retail? We’ve got answers over-easy.

Growers Luncheon: Meeting of the Minds (Invite Only)

Private Event

We are bringing the best in cannabis growing minds together for a networking, idea-sharing, meeting of the minds luncheon. The idea of the inaugural and annual Grower’s Luncheon is to foster conviviality amongst growers. A panel of diverse growers will share their thoughts on some of their biggest challenges growing in a regulated system, share some of their trials and tribulations as they immersed themselves in their position, as well as share some their wishes on what Health Canada can do to better the growing experience and the quality of cannabis. The overall goal is to bring together a nationwide informal network of growers with a yet to be determined purpose – be it social, technical, or advocacy.
