Spring has sprung in 2021 and, with vaccination efforts having ramped up throughout the U.S. and internationally, CannaCon — the nation’s leading business-to-business event for the cannabis industry — is returning to hosting in-person events. This year’s lineup so far includes a series of expos dedicated to developing cannabis business opportunities in the American South and Midwest.
After the pandemic all but shut down any chance at networking or building new partnerships in the cannabis space last year, CannaCon has announced new events for the coming year in the following major U.S. cities:
- Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (May 27-28)
- Detroit, Michigan (June 25-26)
- Chicago, Illinois (August 6-7)
- Biloxi, Mississippi (September 11-12)
- Columbus, Ohio (January 7-8, 2022)
Each expo promises a rich lineup of expert speakers offering advice and knowledge related to finding success in the cannabis industry.
Between its dedicated panel discussion sessions and keynote addresses, CannaCon has for years consistently offered unique education opportunities for cannabis entrepreneurs, executives, and investors — all under one roof. But, according to CannaCon’s Director of Marketing Angela Grelle, the cannabis industry is far more than just the licensed cultivators, processors, and retailers who are on the front lines — ancillary businesses including grow supply stores, security firms, software companies, law firms, and countless others all have their own stake in the industry.
“We focus on making connections between the ancillary businesses and the local retail owners, producers, and processors,” Grelle said.
Cannabis legalization brings a lot of benefits but, while new economic growth and opportunities are just one such advantage, many onlookers fail to realize just how significantly cannabis reforms can change things. Legalization can affect an entire state’s economy whether through attracting new ancillary businesses and investors, for example, or by revitalizing the local tourism industry. In fact, with its network of ancillary industries, the cannabis revolution is creating responsible business networks and new job opportunities for workers at every skill level. If you’ve been on the sidelines until now, now is the best time to get your foot in the door.
Over the years, the CannaCon expo floor has become renowned for creating countless networking opportunities for cannabis entrepreneurs, the industry’s ancillary entrepreneurs, and all of the investors, consumers, and enthusiasts in between.
