NECANN’s High Lifestyle Show will be a first-of-its kind in Massachusetts. The three-day event will be a 30,000 sq ft indoor and outdoor gathering of cannabis brands, retailers, distributors, growers, artists, performers, and consumers converging at a private resort hotel. The event will feature both a conference and festival setting with exhibitors, vendors, concerts, comedy, education, celebrities, socializing and networking.
As a business event, one of our goals is to have businesses, entrepreneurs and brands to be able to meet the distributors, retailers and consumers in an entertaining, safe environment. Retail distributors can promote their products and retail locations in order to compete to attract new customers. Artists can find new fans. Craft growers and brands can showcase their products (in legally acceptable quantities) to curators, dispensaries, and delivery licensees. Making the connection and showing products, knowledge, and skills will allow next-generation and legacy growers to find new paths to success.
As a LifeStyle event, we will be showcasing all aspects of the canna-inspired culture including health, wellness, music, art, clothing, literature, food, cultivation, supplies, medical, educational and ancillary aspects including cannabis weddings and travel.
There will be multiple forms of entertainment all weekend, with live music headlined by: The Wailers, Jon Butcher Axis, Roots of Creation, Brett Wilson, Mikaela Davis, Barrence Whitfield, Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys, Tsunami of Sound, Justine’s Black Threads and more.
Comedy highlights include Dan Hall & The Weed Game Show, plus LIVE Stand-up starring Matt Barry, Mona Forgione, Ian Stuart, Josh Day, all weekend long.
There will also be celebrity signings, artists, and educational seminars on various aspects of the cannabis industry.
Access to the property Oct. 7-9 will be limited to 21+ aged ticket holders, and cannabis activities allowed will be anything legal by Massachusetts laws including outdoor consumption (the event is 21+). Attendees will be allowed to carry a quantity that is legally allowed in Mass, and consume combustible cannabis on property outdoors. No THC products will be sold on premises, although CBD and non-infused products will be.
“The concept for this event has been years in the making, following the craft wine and craft beer movements, both regulated in a similar manner as cannabis,” said event promoter Gary Sohmers. “That model where brands are allowed (by law) to allow people to “taste” their products to build brand loyalty and let people try something prior to buying it, allowed smaller businesses to succeed in stores, bars, and restaurants because of consumer demand. We hope that this consumption-friendly event will be a step in the direction of safe and legal tasting events in Massachusetts”.
