Epstein is exhibiting at this weekend’s Illinois Cannabis Convention being held at the Lakeside Center within Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center. This event, which takes place on June 10th and June 11th, is the only conference solely focused on the fast growing Illinois Cannabis market.
With the recent emergence of legalized cannabis in Illinois and across the US, Epstein has become a leading DesignBuild firm in this industry, providing clients a hands-on approach to strategic planning, programming, architecture, engineering and construction services for retail dispensaries as well as cultivation, processing and manufacturing facilities across the United States.
Retail cannabis has been a rapidly developing market as doctors are finding the plant has great medicinal success for the treatment of myriad of issues and recreational users are enjoying, similar to beer, wine and spirits, the sensations that the flower brings. Epstein has bolstered its portfolio in recent years, establishing Cannabis as another sector in our diverse market coverage, an industry that not only benefits our clients and end-users, but also providing municipalities and state agencies with significant tax benefits which allow for further investment in infrastructure redevelopment and public services.
While most companies in the marketplace have incorporated their brand identity into the design of a cultivation and manufacturing facility or dispensary, these developments still requires a well-coordinated effort with the owner, their legal representation, security, and the local municipality for every location. Community inclusion and public appeal is also an important part of planning for the retail site. Events such as the Illinois Cannabis Convention allow Epstein, to further promote our qualifications to a much broader, multi-regional audience.
