We are proud to present the 4th Annual Croptoberfest in Zillah, Washington on November 4th, 2017. Croptoberfest features over 5 hours of speakers educating about cannabis research, organic cultivation, processing, testing standards, and marketing. This year our event will be hosted in the Perham Hall located at 705 Railroad Ave. Zillah, WA, 98953. The event venue is located in the lower half of a historic building that was originally built during the turn of the century as a fruit packing warehouse. The warehouse was recently renovated into the Perham Hall event venue. Inside the main hall, guests will find a private no-host bar that will serve the attendees with adult libations as well as a conveniently located bar and grill that is just above the event venue that can accommodate folks with food and drink while they are attending Croptoberfest. Attendees will also find free event parking on site.
Each year Croptoberfest features the main stage that the entire event is focused around. We are known for gathering together speakers and panelists that discuss today’s cannabis industry. This extensive industry education is the main value that our guests receive. The secondary value is the inspired dialogue that will organically spark up around the educational panels. Our goal is to inspire the industry to gather around our common issues so that we all can find common solutions. Lastly, our event this year will host over thirty booths separated into three activity areas. Each of these areas will have our different sponsors who are both cannabis companies along with ancillary services. During the programmed breaks our guests can visit and survey these offerings while networking with other businesses and industry fellows. Overall, the experience of Croptoberfest provides a unique survey into the here and now of the cannabis industry along with a glimpse into the near future.
Doors for Croptoberfest will open for all attendees 9:00 a.m. and this mark the beginning of the event and at that time all three showrooms will be open. The main offering that our event delivers to our guests is the speakers and the educational forums that are constructed to provide information on the cannabis industry through specifically the agriculture focus. This year we will be covering many topics that affect the developing industry such as cannabis policy, commodity commissions, organic standards, testing standards, pesticides and IPM and how all of these affect the cannabis marketplace. Each panelist and speaker will dive into the subject matter and offer the attendees a unique viewpoint from their perspective. At the end of each panel or speaker, we will have reserved time to have attendees ask questions and receive answers from our speakers and panelists.
We take organics and sustainability into mind when crafting our event each year. That is why we incorporate as many agricultural voices into the event as possible. Even though we do not advocate for the use of pesticides we understand that they are a functional tool in the toolbox of cannabis cultivators around the world. After all, we are mono-cropping in a quasi-large scale and this has exposed our hybridized crop to heightened levels of pest and disease. It is because of this scenario that we promote education on these chemicals and how to properly apply them. This year we are excited to announce that we will be offering WSDA recertification credits for attendees that have pesticide applicators license.
