MjBizCon in Las Vegas
The cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and it’s only getting bigger. This has led to exceedingly more interest and an increase in the number of cannabis conventions popping up around the globe. One of the most popular and growing conventions is MJBizCon in Las Vegas. Nevada.MjBizcon was founded by Cassandra Farrington and Harrison Phillips in 2012 as a platform to connect industry professionals in the business of cannabis. Today, it is the leading cannabis business conference and expo in the world (in the world Craig! 🌍👮🏽), hosting an annual event in select cities across the United States and digitally spanning virtual streaming events. Through its topics, panelists, and global reach, MjBizcon introduces attendees to resources and experts for business success in the cannabis industry to build meaningful relationships.
What it’s like as an attendee.
At MJBizCon, attendees can expect to see the hottest products, learn the latest regulations, and hear from the “who’s who“ of the cannabis industry. If you convention “goodies” like me you can get MASSIVE 😛 amounts of free product, with the admission fee of course . This event is a great place to connect with vendors, pick up new skills, and take part in seminars. There are endless opportunities (we'll dive deeper shortly) for attendees to expand their knowledge and take part in high-yielding events.
How big is it?
MJBizCon is the world's largest cannabis business and networking event! With over 500 exhibitors, more than 175 educational and startup sessions, and over 30,000 cannabis industry professionals and entrepreneurs expected to attend annually, there are a great number of reasons why companies and individuals should attend MJBizCon. Attendants will benefit from the expansive networking opportunities where they can gain insights and make connections with the many movers and shakers in the world of weed. Additionally, those attending can discover better business strategies or better growing techniques, stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry, and gain exposure to a wide variety of leading cannabis solutions. Furthermore, MJBizCon offers unique opportunities to learn from keynote speakers, celebrities, and industry leaders while also attending a variety of themed after-party events. With all the great reasons to attend, it’s no wonder that MJBizCon is an annual pilgrimage for so many ganja professionals!
