Learn how Cannabis, Hemp and CBD can be incorporated into various types of accommodations to attract tourists and increase revenue. Special guest and industry expert Peter Gamez of Hunter Hospitality will be sharing the hotel perspective on perceived risks, value, and opportunities related to cannabis-related products and services. Submit your questions in advance HERE (https://forms.gle/QGr6FsEuvcMqKAyF9) or interact live during the Q & A segment.

Following the Q & A portion of the program, we will break out into virtual speed-dating style small groups where you can connect with other professionals. In each group, participants will be able to share their 60 second commercial of who they are, what they do, and why cannabis-tourism is important to them. The small group networking portion allows attendees to facilitate their own unique opportunities. An e-mail directory will be made available to all participants after the event to encourage further communication and collaboration.
