DISCUSSION TOPIC: The history, heritage and evolution of the Beak & Skiff brand

Discover the fascinating history of Beak & Skiff, from family farm to cannabis market leader. Retailer Dave Vautrin from Union Square Travel Agency (a cannabis store) will speak on the store's experience around curating a diverse portfolio of brands/SKUs will help compliment and tie-in to the discussion regarding the heritage of Beak & Skiff and our brand building experience with 1911 Est. and Ayrloom. This is a unique opportunity for attendees to hear from and understand the challenges/needs from the whole supply chain.

This limited-ticket event will bring together current and hopeful licensees, entrepreneurs, attorneys, politicians and more for an intimate discussion, followed by an opportunity to network and receive business planning advice along with an option to tour the production facility and campus. Tickets will sell out.



Join us for an evening networking meetup featuring a brief panel discussion with industry experts from the ayrloom/1911/Beak & Skiff brands moderated by the NYCI content team. The conversation will focus on learnings from a brand that has evolved from a 110-year-old family farm to a well-known market leader in the hemp and cannabis industry. There will be a chance for attendees to interact directly with industry thought leaders from the ayrloom/1911/Beak & Skiff team during Q&A, followed by open networking time to meet others in the industry. 

Your ticket provides you with a complimentary drink courtesy of 1911 Established, mini consultations for business planning provided by sponsors and vendors, and full access to our panel conversation with dedicated networking time for industry professionals in attendance. The Limp Lizard food truck will also be available on site.

Also available is a unique add-on to our general admission tour that includes both a production facility tour AND a UTV ride through the 1,000-acre apple orchard and campus.
