The conference is being held on January 9-11, 2020 at the Vancouver Convention Center.
The Lift & Co. Cannabis Business Conference will bring together leading experts from across the industry to tackle subject matter from a uniquely Canadian perspective. The conference ignites discussion around both the medical and recreational-use cannabis markets, as well as Canada’s position of leadership on the world business stage.
Ms. Andrews will bring her experience in developing and marketing cannabis-infused beverages to the Lift & Co. main stage session The Future of Social Consumption. Industry leaders Andrew Freedman, Co-Founder, Freedman & Koski, Inc. and Abi Roach, Founder of HotBox Holdings, will join Ms. Andrews, discussing consumption lounges and infused beverages, how close these may be to becoming a reality, how they will comply with regulations, and how they may change the social fabric.
“Now that infused products are regulated, and beginning to roll out in Canada, consumers are exploring new ways to participate and explore cannabis culture” said Ms. Andrews. “BevCanna has conducted significant research into the way Canadians want to enjoy their cannabis, and consuming infused beverages in social settings, to relax and unwind, and even address health concerns are at the top of the list”.
BevCanna will also participate in the Lift & Co Expo portion of the conference, acting as Hydration Partner for the Expo and offering samples of two of BevCanna’s original cannabis-infused beverage brands, Anarchist Mountain™; and Grüv™, at Exhibit Booth 641.
