Little Rock, AR: The cannabis industry comes to the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, Arkansas Dec. 6 for the state’s first-ever cannabis trade show. The Ark-La-Tex Cannabis Business Expo, hosted by Imperious Expo + Directory and the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association, will promote the medical and industrial benefits of a legal cannabis industry with a strong emphasis on the business sector, connecting businesses in this up-and-coming market, according to a press release.

Representatives from all areas of the cannabis industry will be in attendance, from cultivation, production, dispensaries and testing, to security, marketing and media outlets. Top flight speakers will help attendees take home critical information they can put to work to build business and profits. "We have brought leaders from the medical cannabis industry to Arkansas to share how they've had success in other states." Says Corey Hunt, Board member of the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association. The show is open to the public as well as the business to business (B2B) world.

“The Ark-La-Tex Cannabis Business Expo is dedicated to creating and enhancing lifelong partnerships within the emerging cannabis industry,” says Eric Norton, Founder of Imperious Expo. “It is our objective to provide a professional venue for cannabis businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and community partners to showcase industry products, people and innovations and to cultivate business values within the cannabis industry through education and responsible community involvement.”

Storm Nolan, President of the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association, is enthusiastic about the partnership with Imperious Expo. “Imperious has a good track record of conducting successful industry events in other states, and we’re glad that he’s chosen Arkansas as the location of his next expo covering Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas - states that are now just forming their medical cannabis programs. We expect many great speakers and presenters to be on hand to help educate those entering the cannabis industry, and we think education is the best way to make sure that the cannabis industry in Arkansas is successful.”

The entry fee for both days and the Weedmaps-sponsored after-party at Rebel Kettle is $50 at the door. Pre-registration online with promo code “ACIA2017” gets you 50% off.
