Jim Belushi to Give Keynote at NECANN’s 2023 New England Cannabis Convention

America’s most well-known cannabis cultivator, Jim Belushi, will join NECANN’s New England Cannabis Convention for a fireside chat on Saturday, March 11.

An accomplished actor, comedian, and musician, Jim will be sharing the lessons and skills he’s learned as a commercial grower and owner of Belushi’s Farm.

Jim joins a lineup of over 120 cannabis industry expert speakers at the convention, which features 2 sold-out exhibit halls with over 300 displays, 5 daily programming tracks, and 4 workshops over 3 days. NECANN will also present the 5th annual New England Cannabis Community Awards on Friday night, and the winners of the 2023 NECANN Cup will be announced on the exhibit floor on Saturday.

The convention will be far and away the largest B2B cannabis industry event ever presented, with over 10,000 industry professionals coming together for the 3-day event at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

NECANN has been developing engaging conventions for the cannabis industry since 2014, and now produces the largest convention in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, and Maine, expanding market opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, educators, patients, advocates, and consumers. NECANN conventions hold a unique place in the event space, taking a collaborative approach with the local industries and communities, which has resulted in consistently high returns for exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, and the local cannabis market as a whole, allowing everyone to benefit and grow.

“We’re happy to say that The New England Cannabis Convention continues to defy industry norms by growing yet again in 2023,” said NECANN Founder and President, Marc Shepard. “Both exhibit halls sold out over 2 months before the show and we had the highest number of speaker applications we’ve ever seen. This event has truly become ‘The Annual Meeting of the Northeast Cannabis Industry.'”
