WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ACI

They love it. Read what the previous attendees had to say!

I was astonished with the quality of this presentation. The ACI Business Forum exceeded all of my expectations and made for a very complete presentation. The event was also appropriately priced and I feel that I definitely worth every penny. I look forward to attending the next presentation.

Attendee
ACI Business Forum 2016

I have been a medical card holder in AK since 2009. Finally there is a source for cannabis education in Alaska. The state really has neglected the “medical cannabis” patients by not providing any reliable resources. I can honestly say, I am much more prepared for this adventure, then I was even a week before the “Cannabis Business Forum”. Thanks Cory & Team for an awesome event & weekend.
