NACT Canada’s Founding Member and Board Vice-Chair, Shaman Ferraro of Gocanna, joins the Canna-Tourism panel discussion at Toronto’s O’CannaBiz Conference & Expo, April 25-27.

Join Shaman and the expert panel conversation moderated by by Brian Applegarth this Friday, April 26th, on the Expo Main Stage from 1:20pm to 2:00pm ET.

Brian is an award winning documentarian and trusted leader in the cannabis tourism, travel, and hospitality sector focused on education and preservation of cannabis history and culture. As founder and president of the California Cannabis Tourism Association, Emerald Country Tours, and The Cannabis Heritage Trail non-profit, his mission is to demystify and normalize the cannabis conversation.

The panel discussion focus is “How legalization can transform Canada’s hospitality sector”.

CBD massages, micro-dose infused meals, cannabis-influenced yoga, local farm tours, and – in a new definition of “rolling greens,” golfing… the brightest minds in the hospitality business have been at work imagining the possibilities of adapting our already robust tourism sector to the new realities of legalization.

Add these elements to compatible “event tourism,” like live music festivals and year-round thriving live music scenes, and you’ve got synergy that can transform the magnitude of a market.

It’s “local experience” tourism of the highest order.

Don't miss the travel and hospitality experts who’ll explain how they see it unfolding.

Abi Roach, Founder of Hotbox, Abi has been innovating the cannabis lifestyle & tourism industry for 20 years.
