Rotorua X Connect August 2019 – 10th Birthday Special Event
Our Connect event provides an opportunity to meet new faces, be inspired by other people’s success and expand your networks.
This month we have a special Connect event as part of the Rotorua Innovation Festival PLUS its our 10th birthday
To celebrate our TENTH year, and our 94th EVENT we are excited to have a speaker who is also breaking ground in a very hot topic, medicinal cannabis. And it’s a great fit to be part of the inaugral Rotorua Innovation Festival Taiopenga Auaha 2019.
Ten Year Milestone
Ten years ago Rotorua X launched to provide a different type of business event that focused on connection and inspiration. An event for the future leaders of our town. In today’s entrepreneurial speak we disrupted the status quo of business networking. Our first event had 12 attendees. Fast forward ten years and we are consistently getting up to 100 RSVP’s to our monthly events.
Mark Lucas, founder and CEO of Cannasouth, will join us to share his journey on being the first NZ medicinal cannabis company to list on the New Zealand Stock Exchange.
Globally, the market is moving ahead at a rapid pace and Mark believes New Zealand is well positioned to play a significant role in the industry globally through a focus on quality, innovation, and sustainability. There is an air on anticipation with the looming legalisation of medicinal cannabis that we will witness a new market explode.
But it is a polarising issue. Right now the Government is consulting on medicinal cannabis legislation. And of course we all get to have our say on in the referendum planned in the 2020 election.
If you want to hear an insider’s view on what’s happening in this space, and the start-up journey of one of the leading medicinal cannabis research companies in New Zealand, then register now for our special Innovation Festival Connect Event
Join us at the fabulous Regent of Rotorua for drinks and nibbles.
As well as our awesome speaker, we may have cake and provide plenty of laughs with 10 years’ worth of blooper photos from our events (and oh my, we have some truly hilarious ones!).
Please RSVP online. RSVP now.
All the best,
Darren, Anna, Clive, Rachael, Renee and Julia.
