Spring has sprung in 2021 and vaccination efforts having ramped up throughout the U.S. and internationally. As a result, CannaCon has announced it is returning to hosting in-person events. This event is the nation’s leading business-to-business event for the cannabis industry. The lineup so far includes a series of expos dedicated to developing cannabis business opportunities in the South and Midwest.
A Triumphant Return
The pandemic has all but shut down any chance at in-person networking. A year later, and events are starting to take shape now that the vaccine has rolled out. As a result, 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 features a rich lineup of expert speakers offering advice and knowledge related to finding success in the cannabis industry. As many states continue to legalize cannabis, especially in the south, this may be beneficial for new business owners.
Between its dedicated panel discussion sessions and keynote addresses, CannaCon has for years consistently offered unique education opportunities for cannabis entrepreneurs, executives, and investors. 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.
According to their website, CannaCon is dedicated to creating and strengthening lifelong partnerships within the emerging cannabis industry. Its mission is to provide a global B2B venue for the entire cannabis community. They are committed to cultivating business values within the cannabis industry through education and responsible community involvement.
Cannabis legalization brings a lot of benefits. 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.
