Marijuana Entrepreneurs Already Lining Up To Hold Trade Shows

ALASKA:  Alaskans voted to legalize recreational marijuana earlier this month, and entrepreneurs are already looking to cash in and are gearing up for the green rush. In Anchorage, three different trade shows are already in the works, beginning in March 2015. Here are the details: Business seminar and trade show The Rush is On will be bringing growers, dispensary owners, attorneys and other industry professionals to Anchorage, organizer Ben Adams said.

Adams said the event will be largely educational; the agenda notes seminars on business structure, regulation status, pot tourism, investment options, and advice on growing marijuana.

More than 100 vendors will be at the event from across the industry, “from dirt to lights to activists, you name it,” Adams said.
