Event Description: US (NV): Advancing Cannabis Technology Summit to be held on December 10th

Industry suppliers with deep rooted horticultural histories will host a unique educational summit prior to the MJBizCon show in Las Vegas this December. On Tuesday, December 10th, the Advancing Cannabis Cultivation Technology Summit (ACT Summit) will bring together cannabis cultivators, owners, and investors for a full day of education on the latest cutting-edge technologies and best practices designed to improve operational efficiency and increase overall profitability in today’s competitive cannabis cultivation landscape.

“The objective of ACT is to help growers, owners and investors make their facility and operation as effective and efficient as possible” explains Cinnamon Cantwell of the ACT group. “Commercial greenhouses have developed successful high-tech methods that optimize operations and yields”. The summit’s corporate sponsors Signify, Grodan, Meteor Systems, Svensson and Priva have worked with large commercial growers for decades to implement the proven technologies needed to run high-tech cultivation facilities.

The one-day event features a compelling mix of industry experts and will spotlight the essential role of advanced cultivation technologies, including featured speakers Paul Selina from Village Farms/PureSun and Jody Vukas from Smart Grow Pros, adding valuable experienced-based insight.

The key take-a-ways that attendees will get out of the ACT Summit will be to supercharge their cannabis cultivation, expand their production to a large commercial scale and maximize quality and yield while improving operational efficiently and lowering costs.

“And this year we’re very excited to bring back Scott Reach of Rare Dankness to keynote for us” explains Cinnamon Cantwell, “Scott will be bringing the latest in breeding and genetics which is a very hot topic of discussion for growers”.
The ACT Summit will be held on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019 at the Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas and will feature presentations sharing years of commercial growing experience, a lively round table discussion featuring the day’s hot topics, and the unique opportunity to speak directly to the experts at a post-summit reception.

Register today to secure your spot at the ACT summit in Las Vegas to learn the proven commercial scale growing methods that will help you stay competitive and keep your operating costs to a minimum while delivering greater plant yield and a higher quality product. Limited seats available. Full day access, including drinks, lunch and networking reception only $299 with $100 discount for MJBizCon show registrants.

The Cannabis Law Sessions: Liquidity Events

 

 

 

Event Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Event Time: 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m

Event Location: TBD

Event Description: New this year, INCBA will be presenting Continuing Legal Education in Las Vegas in conjunction with MJBizCon. We are incredibly excited to finish off our educational year speaking about liquidity events for your clients – how to make an exit and help your colleagues realize the gains of their sweat equity. Our four hours of Continuing Legal Education in Las Vegas will center on business exit strategies and liquidity events.

Whether the founders want to step back entirely or continue to play a role in the management of the company they built, their goal will be to realize some or all of the gains of their sweat equity in these transactions. And, on the other side of the table, your investor clients have a host of factors to examine as they kick the tires on these commercial cannabis operators. During the sessions, we will take a look at:

  • Sale of the part or all of the business assets of a company (M&A Activity).
  • Accessing capital markets (determining jurisdictions and preparation for an IPO).
  • Alternative means of Monetizing Assets (royalty agreements, white-labeling, leasebacks, etc.).
  • Tax aspects of liquidity events and deal structure.

Rounding out INCBA’s 2019 educational arc, these important sessions addressing the issues and mechanics for cannabis business exit strategies and liquidity events will give you the tools you need to best serve your clients.

Solicitors’ Soiree 

Join INCBA 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (*time subject to change) for our 4th annual MJBizCon Party. Access to the party is included in the cost of the CLE Registration (and free for INCBA members!).  See you there!
