Prohibition Partners and Business of Cannabis are happy to announce High Tide Inc. as a sponsor for the inaugural Business of Cannabis: New York event on September 29, taking place within the iconic Rainbow Rooms, at the top of Rockefeller Center.
Over a decade of experience in the cannabis industry has positioned High Tide as a leading enterprise operating across Canada, Europe and the US. Founded in 2009, High Tide’s portfolio companies include a dominant Canadian cannabis retail chain, a global manufacturer and distributor of cutting-edge consumption accessories, and 3 of the 5 most popular accessories e-commerce platforms in the world. Combined, their online platforms saw almost 100 million site visits in 2020. They have spent the last decade developing an understanding of cannabis consumers and a suite of retail experiences to service their interests, uniquely positioning High Tide for international expansion through emerging legal markets.
In an appearance on Business of Cannabis’ BofC Live today, Vahan Ajamian, Vice President of High Tide said, “We continue to do everything that’s federally legal. We are continuing to sell CBD, continuing to sell accessories and grow that business. We had over 100 million site visits last year and we serve over 2.5 million customers through our online platforms. Once we get federal approval – or exchange approval – whichever comes first – we’ll be able to sell cannabis legally once we’re able to do so.” Ajamian continued, “New York is a huge market that we’re focused on.”
“We are excited to have High Tide on board for Business of Cannabis: New York,” said Jay Rosenthal, Managing Director of Business of Cannabis. “High Tide’s rapid expansion in the Canadian market coupled with their ever-increasing e-commerce platform has been impressive to witness – and having them as part of our event in New York shows their commitment to expanding into new and emerging legal markets.”
High Tide’s Vahan Ajamian will join speakers such as Senator Liz Krueger, William Healy of Silver Spike Capital and Pablo Zuanic of Cantor Fitzgerald; plus many more industry leaders and experts. See the full list of speakers here.
