Today we are honored to have Sacha Hockenhull. Sacha Hockenhull is an entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience ranging from restaurant management, corporate communications, and event organization. He currently organizes HempFest Canada and Growing Summit and is also part of C45 Quality Association which serves as a national private-sector advocate for compliance and quality in the Canadian Cannabis sector.
When Sacha organized his first cannabis exposition in Calgary, his friends said he would get arrested and his family threatened to disown him. He watched hundreds of people file through HempFest at the Edmonton Convention Centre, the first major event of its kind in the city since recreational marijuana legalization. "Now the conversation is totally different," said Hockenhull. "When I say I run a cannabis show, people say, 'Tell me everything you know.'"
