Kelowna (British Columbia)/Syilx (Okanagan) – The Association of Canadian Cannabis Retailers (ACCRES), BC Craft Farmers Co-op (BCCFC), Dutchie, and Saskatchewan Weed Pool today confirmed the BC Cannabis Summit planned for Kelowna April 20-22, 2022 is sold out.
Registration for the event opened on December 22, 2021, and was suspended on February 18, 2022, due to capacity limitations at partner venue, Eldorado Resort. A waitlist was created at bccannabisummit.ca while organizers worked with the venue to secure additional space. As a result, the Planning Committee can confirm:
- a limited number of registration spaces will be made available to waitlist applicants this month;
- a second stage will be added to host additional panel discussions; and
- a digital streaming option has been launched to expand access and facilitate an interactive Summit experience from anywhere in BC, Canada and around the world.
With the launch of the livestream option to include more participants, the Planning Committee is ready to receive proposals from vendors interested in becoming the Summit’s Digital Streaming Partner. Contact us here.
In addition to viewing panels and speakers, online delegates will be invited to participate in the Summit’s policy process, attend virtual trade show booths, and enjoy exclusive access to streaming ‘behind the scenes’ content. Digital registration capacity is limited and available here. Rates start at $42.00 for one-day VIP Livestream Pass (April 21 or 22) or $71.00 for a full event VIP Livestream Pass (April 20-22).
The event agenda is being updated to reflect this expanded scope and will be published in the coming days on the event website.
