InSpire Visits Detroit for NCIA’s Midwest Cannabis Business Conference

15 September 2021 /

InSpire is excited to be traveling to Detroit for the National Cannabis Industry Association’s annual Midwest Cannabis Business Conference. Later this month, our own Jesse Porter will join the NCIA Facilities Design Committee to discuss resource efficiency for HVACD, lighting and controls systems. The session will take place on Thursday, September 23 at 1:00 p.m. EST during the conference. 

Jesse will be joined by Dario Boyce from Anderson Porter Design and Corinne Wilder from Fluence by OSRAM, who are all representatives of the Facilities Design Committee. The FDC focuses on providing NCIA members with up-to-date information on facilities design to help businesses plan for GMP level production as the market transitions from a state to a federally regulated industry. The Committee will explore case study examples of facility design to illustrate operational challenges and technical hurdles and how to navigate them. Attendees will learn more about:

  • How to differentiate between system types, evaluate the efficiency of and right-size cannabis HVACD equipment
  • The different types of horticulture lighting equipment and critical factors for optimized lighting design 
  • The importance of data collection and control systems for plant and energy performance

A study from June 2021 shows that Michigan’s cannabis industry brought in nearly $3.2 billion in 2020. The Midwest Cannabis Business Conference aims to lead the conversation surrounding the future of the Midwest cannabis market by sharing insights and best practices from industry experts to help new businesses succeed. The conference is developed with a focus on dispensary owners and cultivators.
