Academic Cannabis Conference

The ACC VIP After Party follows the Academic Cannabis Conference, which runs from 12-5 p.m. earlier that same day. The Academic Cannabis Conference (ACC) is set to attract around 600 attendees from across the Illinois cannabis industry, including professionals, longtime enthusiasts, and newcomers, to the Garden Grove Event Center in Carbondale for two conjoining networking experiences, the Education Center & Job Fair and the Entertainment & Cannabis Community. Though the two event spaces are separated within the event grounds, ticket holders will have free rein to travel back-and-forth between the two conjoining events.

The Education Center & Job Fair portion of the event, with the SIUC Cannabis Science Center as academic contributor, will combine academic research and education with job fair opportunities and resources and include academic presentations, a panel, horticulture programs, certificate programs, job trainers, job seekers, employers, and potential and current students in cannabis. The ACC, located at 1215 East Walnut St. in Carbondale, is pleased to announce two of its Featured Presenters, Dr. Jose Leme and Dr. Suzanne Mulvehill.

The Education Center booth and Presentation Stage are the focal points for this portion of the event. The Education Center booth will be the communal marketing materials location for job opportunities and academic resources. From the Presentation Stage, professors and professionals in the cannabis field will deliver research presentations and discussion panels. The presentation schedule will be announced soon.

The Entertainment & Cannabis Community portion features a variety of new and established Illinois cannabis brands, legal consumption, a full cannabis bar service (sponsored by The Botanist), a dab bar service (sponsored by Legacy), and an infused-cocktail bar service (sponsored by Tonic), joint rolling stations (sponsored by Cresco), music, food, games, giveaways, and more. Anchored in the middle of the Entertainment & Cannabis Community is the Community Center booth. The Community Center booth is the focal point for all prescheduled activities, games, and giveaways. Throughout the event, our Activities Host will facilitate games and 420 activities to ensure continuous entertainment at the Community Center and the surrounding vendors.
