With the launch of medical marijuana in Arkansas starting in months, the medical cannabis industry is coming to Little Rock for a tri-state conference.

The two-day expo will be held on December 6-7 at the Statehouse Convention Center. The Ark-La-Tex Cannabis Business Expo will be hosted by Imperious Expo + Directory and the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association (ACIA).


The event will offer Arkansans a chance to meet with hundreds of current industry experts from around the country. Representatives from all areas of the cannabis industry will be in attendance, from cultivation, production, dispensaries and testing, to security, marketing, and media outlets, according to organizers.

“The Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association is excited to team up with Eric Norton at Imperious Expo to bring the first cannabis industry expo to the Arkansas area,” said Storm Nolan, President of the ACIA. “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 expo does offer opportunities for sponsorships and exhibitors. For more information, click here.
