Flores will play a key role in strategic marketing of the Augmented Reality CannaCube Live™ platform advancing its portfolio of Augmented Reality marketing capabilities to dispensaries, cultivation and extraction facilities and other marijuana businesses.
“I am tremendously impressed with this leadership team, its progressive model and its ability to realize the vision of a modern cannabis industry that leverages Augmented Reality,” says Flores.
“We are pleased to have engaged the services of Mr. Anthony Flores,” says Bill Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. “The AR market is estimated to grow to a $120 billion industry by 2020. Mr. Flores’ services will help the CannaCube get into the hands of diverse marijuana businesses, thereby allowing Future Farm to be at the forefront of this fast growing cannabis market and fast growing technology.”
The AR market is expected to explode from a $10 billion market today to $120 billion over the next two years as Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Intel are now launching software and hardware to support this dynamic and fast-growing industry. Future Farm is aiming to carve out its niche in the cannabis market with augmented reality enhanced packaging for branding as well as an ad-tech driven platform where dispensaries, cultivators, processors and others will use its AR platform to create a richer customer experience in dispensaries, and at home.
