NECANN conventions are resource hubs for the Cannabis Industry. Focused on each local market’s needs and opportunities, so businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, educators, patients, advocates, and consumers can connect, learn, and grow. We feel that we are a superior alternative to the generic national canna-convention franchises offered elsewhere. NECANN takes a collaborative approach to each of our conventions that has resulted in consistently high ROI for exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, and the local cannabis market as a whole, Facilitating growth for all.
