Description

Third Thursdays is a fantastic opportunity to network with members of creative industries, meet the cultural development team, reconnect with your industry colleagues in a casual environment and enjoy some complimentary snacks! Come on out and find your next great collaborator.

Is this for me?

  • are you a professional artist?
  • are you a professional musician?
  • are you a professional writer/publisher?
  • are you a professional filmmaker?
  • are you a professional dancer?
  • are you a professional actor?
  • are you a professional artisan/crafter?
  • are you working in theatre?
  • are you working as an arts administrator?
  • do you work for a cultural and/or creative organization?
  • do you work in applied arts (ex: graphic design, video gaming, culinary, fashion, craft)?

If you answered yes to the above questions we want to see you at Third Thursdays!

The arts are at the heart of all creative industries. Design (such as interior, graphic, architecture, industrial, fashion and engineering), marketing, publishing, video production, gaming and virtual reality, fashion, and the beauty industry are all artistic pursuits. Music recording, broadcast, print publication, podcast, blogs, and other digital storytelling are all artistic pursuits.

Third Thursdays is a bi-monthly event that takes place on the 3rd Thursday of that month across Prince Edward Island. We are encouraging all creative Islanders to get out and meet up with their colleagues from across the province.

Cannabiz Tourism: Strategies 2020 @ Startup Zone
Nov 26 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Learn about the emerging Canadian Cannabis Tourism industry and what you can do to position your business to capitalize on market trends.

About this Event

On October 17, 2018, Canada legalized recreational cannabis. In July 2019, only 10-months later, the Canadian Cannabis Industry added $8.26 billion to Canada’s GDP and grew 185%.

So what does the future of Cannabis Legalization mean for Canada’s Hospitality & Tourism industry? For Prince Edward Island?

This event will:

• Define what “Cannabis Tourism” is

• Provide an overview of the Canadian Cannabis Industry

• Discuss emerging cannabis tourism strategies in Canada and abroad

• Explore strategies for businesses in Prince Edward Island

This session is designed for hospitality and tourism owners, managers and Government employees in Prince Edward Island. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Must be 19 years of age or older to attend.

– – – About the Speaker – – –

Island entrepreneur, investor and small-business owner, Shaman Ferraro is the CEO of Gocanna, a cannabis tourism consulting and education service. In August 2018, Shaman was the first person to provide analytical data and project the potential $2B economic value of cannabis tourism industry in Canada. Recognized as a Cannabis Tourism Expert, he has been a featured speaker on the subject at conferences across Canada.

Shaman is also an experienced ‘cannabis event planner’, having successfully hosted PEI’s first recreational cannabis event on October 19, 2018 – 2 days after legalization – as well as PEI’s first cannabis conference in May 2019, The Atlantic Cannabis Conference & Expo.

Combining traditional hospitality and tourism with opportunities in the emerging cannabis industry, Shaman is a leader in comprehensively understanding unique solutions that maximize the customer experience, the value of commercial services and the economic return for business owners in the emerging and niche markets.

FUN FACT: Shaman was interviewed live by CTV NEWS Toronto on October 17, 2018 – the day cannabis was legalized in Canada!
