ALASKA’S TOP CANNABIS EDUCATION RESOURCE

LEARN. INNOVATE. CREATE.

January 30-31, 2016

Anchorage, Alaska

SOLD OUT

Hurry up, seating is limited

The Alaska Cannabis Institute, a leader in Alaskan cannabis education and training, is set to convene in Anchorage for the first-ever Alaska Cannabis Institute Business Symposium, to be held in the E.R. Brown Auditorium on the campus of Alaska Pacific University on January 30-31.

“Alaska has some of the most robust cannabis demand in the country,” said Cory Wray, director of the Institute. “And the barriers to entry are reasonable and fair for cannabis entrepreneurs who want to get involved in the industry.”

The symposium features a variety of speakers aimed at providing the information, networks, and strategies cannabis entrepreneurs need to know to be successful in Alaska’s newly approved recreational marijuana market.

Seminars are designed to help the budding Alaskan cannabis entrepreneur set up shop in Alaska; including the state’s application process and licensing procedures; packaging and labeling requirements; growing operations; inventory tracking policies and demonstration; operating plan requirements; security and surveillance requirements; and much more.
