In March, Surna was invited to be a presenter on the Cannabis Investor Webcast. Surna presented during the first hour of the webcast, opening up the day-long, multi-company event. Each month the webcast attracts hundreds of investors and professionals both from within the cannabis industry and those seeking more information on how to enter the market.
This year’s ASHRAE Conference and AHR Expo was nothing short of interesting. For one week Chicago, IL, became home to thousands of HVACR engineers. It was an excellent opportunity to mingle with fellow engineers in the industry to discuss alternative technologies and applications. Most engineers worked in typical HVACR services which allowed us at Surna to stand out. Everyone I had the opportunity to talk to was very interested in how Surna applies hydronic cooling to the cannabis industry.
In late October, I had honor of attending The Infused Product and Extraction Symposium organized by The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). The venue was elegant and the room was filled with suits that were surly containing very high-powered and business savvy professionals which now overwhelm the numbers of tie-dyed brothers and sisters of this industry’s rebellious past. To say that the air was saturated with the inspiring excitement of this innovative and prolific new industry would be an understatement indeed. From Dixie Elixirs to Eden Labs, this first-of-its-kind conference gathered the best and brightest in the world of cannabis oil extraction and product infusion to discuss the future of these practices and the rapidly expanding regulations surrounding their continuance. Here we’ll talk about why this side of the industry is here to stay, and walk up-and-coming entrepreneurs through the fundamentals of starting a successful business in this sector.
