The Circle AGM Shareholder Meeting & Tradeshow 2019
The Start of something incredible!
Spiritleaf’s second annual AGM was recently held in Calgary, Canada. The excitement kicked off with Darren Bondar, Spiritleaf President & CEO sharing the new company manifesto, which helped to set the tone for the event.
Then the entire Spiritleaf team was welcomed on stage with brief introductions, for the franchise owners to see all the friendly faces behind the brand. Both staff and franchisees were thrilled with the look of the new event booth too!
There were several high-level presentations from the Spiritleaf management team covering various topics of business.
Many of Spiritleaf’s strategic partners also shared presentations with the audience, such as Cova POS. Some of the biggest licensed producers also took to the stage, sharing informative details about their brands and products. Even sharing some of their plans for the launch of edible formats later this year!
The highlight of the day was the presentation given by the AGLC representative, who very confidently answered questions from audience members.
This event included a Spiritleaf pop-up shop and some branded snacks including gourmet popcorn, a customized doughnut wall and even popsicle’s sponsored by our friends at Aurora Cannabis Inc.
