The Power of Alignment

Calling all professional and customer service, manufacturing, arts & creative, retail & distribution, trade, technology, health and education business decision makers & entrepreneurs with a vested interest in the Cannabis sector. You are invited to collaborate with like-minded professionals with a goal of masterminding an aligned vision to accelerate Vancouver Island as an unforgettable place to #GetWorkDone in the Cannabis sector.

The Opportunity

The legalization of Cannabis means a massive change to the infrastructure, healthcare, and revenue for the government of Canada, and it also means a healthy injection of legalized business for entrepreneurs, business decision makers, service providers, manufacturers, arts culture experience providers, retailers & distributors, trades and educators. To get your head around the opportunity, accounting firm Deloitte came up with a headline-grabbing figure of $22.6 billion a year for the Canadian pot industry (CBC News)...which would exceed the total beer, wine and spirit industry combined.

Who are we?

beSMART is a business event series accelerating Canada's most distinctive communities. We believe in business and entrepreneur's power to transform community. We believe collaboration creates maximum impact. We believe Vancouver Island is perfectly placed to leverage Canada’s progressive Cannabis policy and legislation, British Columbia’s branding as a hot-spot for cannabis, and the West Coast’s emerging status as a destination workplace where innovators and game changers gather to grow big and small business.

What you can expect

Up to 12 business decision makers & entrepreneurs attend a 60-minute fast-moving, directed conversation to capture ‘Vancouver Island’s’ distinctiveness in the Cannabis sector in these pillars:

- Infrastructure

- Programs, events & education

- Collaboration & technology

- Destination branding

Sorry, we won’t have time to get into personal opinions, but we DO want to identify collective opportunities, restraints we have the capacity to overcome, solutions we can take action on, and innovative ideas.

Choose to attend one of four one-hour sessions: 7.30am, 10.30am, 12.30pm or 4.30pm
