The conference brings together more than 2,500 attendees and engaged investors to connect with over 100 leading public and private technology companies and start-ups. Investors will get insights into the most current developments and disruptive headlines in science, technology and culture.
The conference is hosted by Cambridge House International, which has been a leader in connecting Canadian companies for over 25 years, and now hosts the largest technology and mining conferences in the country, with over 20,000 delegates attending shows throughout the year.
Second wave of legalization
The conference will be held just weeks before the second wave of cannabis legalization in Canada that will permit the sale of edibles, beverages, extracts, and topicals starting October 17.
“The technology behind creating and manufacturing infused-cannabis beverages is continually evolving, and BevCanna is at the forefront of the advances,” Andrews said in a statement.
“We’ll share what we’ve learned from our consumer research and product development programs, and how utilizing the latest technologies is enabling us to develop a wide variety of new beverages that not only comply with all regulatory requirements but are also very appealing to a broad range of consumers.”
BevCanna said it will also display two of their newly-launched beverage brands at their exhibit booth.
The Grüv Beverages brand represents an easy-drinking range of cannabis-infused iced tea beverages, while the Anarchist Mountain Beverages brand is inspired by the plants found throughout the Pacific Northwest, and will include refreshing, lightly sparkling, ready-to-drink THC-dominant beverages, the company added.
