We’re Operating Insider Tours for the City of Denver’s Annual Regulator Conference For 3rd Consecutive Year
My 420 Tours is thrilled to announce that it will be operating tours for the Marijuana Management Symposium. In its 4th year, the annual conference brings public sector regulators and policymakers from all over the state, country (and world!) to learn about Colorado’s groundbreaking legalization model.
The two-day event will be held at the Downtown Embassy Suites from Wednesday, Oct 31 to Friday, November 2, 2018.
From the official Facebook event: “Adapt to evolving marijuana regulations and find solutions to hurdles. The Denver Marijuana Management Symposium is a two-day conference for law enforcement agencies, licensing and zoning officials, fire department and building code compliance officials, social service and welfare agencies and departments, policy officials, regulators, environmental and public health officials, and governmental attorneys. It is the first of its kind and still the only conference that focuses solely on the public sector and how to responsibly tackle the challenges that come with implementing and regulating the newly legalized and commercialized cannabis industry.
Infocast has partnered with the City of Denver for the 4th Annual Denver Marijuana Management Symposium 2018 scheduled for October 31 – November 2, 2018, in Denver, Colorado. Don’t miss your chance to:
- Get an update on impacts of marijuana legalization on public health, the environment, and public safety
- Gain best practices from regulators in other jurisdictions, states, and countries
- Hear lessons learned from implementation phases and enforcement practices across various states
- Connect and network with colleagues from different jurisdictions, other states, and countries
The Tour Option for Marijuana Management Symposium Attendees
Conference-goers have the option to get inside the industry on board the My 420 Tours buses. We’ll be running special consumption-free tours for the symposium, complete with visits to exclusive grow operations and MIP (marijuana-infused product) facilities. This in-the-field portion of the conference is often a highlight for the public officials.
From our private tour description from last year: “On your tour, you will be picked up and dropped off at the Embassy Suites in one of our luxury limo buses. The tour will visit one industrial sized grow, one dispensary, and one Marijuana Infused Products Manufacturer (MIP). Each guided tour will have two My 420 Tours staff members on board in case you have any questions.
This educational cannabis excursion is an immersive way of experiencing an insider’s look into the Colorado Cannabis Industry. During the tour, you will be chauffeured throughout Denver in luxury transportation, where your private driver will be equipped with bottled water and snacks.
The Guest List
In 2016 and 2017, we’ve been impressed by the high-level public servants and professionals this conference attracts. Last year, there was heavy representation from California and Canada — both of whom were on track for full adult-use legalization. Here are a few samples of organizations who have sent representatives and what their roles are:
- City of Sacramento, CA — City Planner
- City of Sacramento, CA — Code Enforcement Manager
- City of Sacramento, CA — Program Specialist
- City of Santa Monica, CA — City Planning Manager
- Hanford Police Department, CA — Chief of Police
- REACH Edmonton Council — Alberta, Canada — Executive Director
- City of Las Vegas, NV — Marijuana Program Coordinator
- City of Las Vegas, NV — Senior License Officer
- Ministry of Justice and Security — The Netherlands — Senior Policy Advisor
- Uruguay — Director of Cannabis Regulation
- Deloitte Consulting, LLP — Senior Manager
- Marijuana Policy Group — Founding Partner
By the end of the conference, public officials and regulators from all over gain an up-close view of Colorado’s legalized and commercialized cannabis industry. The audience falls along the entire spectrum of skepticism to conviction about legalization and its impacts. But one thing’s for certain — they’ll leave with a better understanding of our state’s model and hopefully some new ideas to bring to less liberalized states.
