Designed to be the first true “Cannabis 2.0” event, Marijuana Venture’s Retail Vision is a best-in-class business and technology conference specifically developed to help cannabis retailers grow their enterprise and increase profits.
The two-day event, set for November 9-10, 2021, at the Seattle Airport Marriott, will feature expert advice from leading executives and professionals in both traditional retail and the cannabis segment. This blended approach gives participants invaluable insight into what works and what doesn’t. It will also be the first cannabis event to offer a money-back guarantee.
“Retail Vision goes beyond the green-rush hype of other industry events and focuses on practical, established methods for running a successful retail establishment,” said Greg James, publisher of Marijuana Venture magazine, which also produces the Interchange business event and the Retail and Dispensary Expo. “On the first day, it’s all business. We’ve assembled retail experts from various backgrounds, including Costco and Nordstrom, to take the dispensary owner’s business knowledge to the next level.”
Advanced retail best practices covered during the two-day event include merchandising, add-on sales, customer services and buying/vendor practices.
For day two the magazine is partnering with 420MSP and the focus switches to leveraging retail technology to improve efficiency and maximize potential. Harry Brelsford of 420MSP says cannabis retailers have similar technology needs to other industries, but with a twist.
“Cannabis retailers and dispensaries have unique cannabis vertical technology workloads such as POS solutions, reporting needs (compliance and traceability) and security (cyber and physical),” he says. “On day two of Retail Vision, attendees will have the chance to get their arms around all the relevant cannabis technology.”
The technology component explores digital marketing, customer retention programs, point-of-sale solutions, e-commerce platforms and website design.
