Next week sparks an exciting time for technology in British Columbia. The #BCTECH Summit is happening January 18-19 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This inaugural event brings together businesses, politicians, and thought leaders to discuss the most important topics impacting business technology decisions today.

Tantalus Labs is stoked to be in attendance. We’ll be participating in the trade show, at a table in the pavilion organized by Launch Academy, our favourite Vancouver Tech Incubator. If you’re in attendance, swing by and kick it. We’ll be chatting with attendees all day about emerging technologies and potential applications for our industry.

Through our mission to advance the frontier of cannabis, we can’t help getting excited about emerging technologies. The tech sector holds the potential to improve cannabis cultivation techniques and enhance the end user experience for customers.

The primary technology that Tantalus can share with this community is our greenhouse. Greenhouses have been utilized to optimize cultivation conditions for years. Combining top greenhouse designs with the systems needed for Canadian cannabis production is a nascent field we aspire to advance. Novel systems such as odour filtration, rainwater recapture, process automation, security, and others all need to work in harmony with proven greenhouse tech.

Our facility will be inspection ready in February, bringing years of design and engineering to their conclusion. The facility has strong potential to lend innovation back to other agricultural sectors, and drive best practices for sustainable cannabis cultivation. It’s been a lot of work, and a lot of fun.

Operating a sustainable company that cultivates world-class cannabis is a goal we will always refine. It has forced us to examine our processes on a long time horizon, and view agricultural technologies at their merit. It has led us to believe in the #Sungrown future for cannabis cultivation, and we aspire to champion sustainability for its customers and environment.

The vision for a brighter future is one that Tantalus Labs shares with technology enthusiasts. We’re looking forward to meeting everyone next week.
