ZOOMAWAY TRAVEL ANNOUNCES PLANS TO RESEARCH AND PURSUE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE CANNABIS HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES
The cannabis hospitality and tourism industry is growing with the recreational legalization of marijuana in several states including Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Zoomaway feels that the adoption of cannabis hospitality and tourism by lodging, activities, transportation, culinary and wellness experiences won't be too far behind. As the industry finds its way through the regulations and appetites for certain experiences, Zoomaway plans to be well positioned as these opportunities arise.
"We have been identifying several different opportunities in the United States in this space for the past several months. With our ultradiverse suite of technology products, we believe that we can capitalize on this growing market and be at the forefront of continued expansion. We also have the added benefit of being in Nevada, which has recently joined the wave of states to become marijuana friendly. Any potential start-ups or existing tour operators would not only benefit from Zoomaway's booking technology and platforms, but would gain the added benefit of using our extensive hotel and outdoor activity inventory. The opportunity to bring together two growing industries is always worth our research time and exploration dollars," said Sean Schaeffer, chief executive officer of ZoomAway Travel.
Subject to the completion of the research into these markets and the regulatory and legal requirements associated, Zoomaway will pursue relationships in several new U.S. and international destinations. Many conditions and restrictions remain within the cannabis industry and there should be no inference taken from this release that Zoomaway Travel or its subsidiaries currently operate in this space.
