If you’re looking to network at the biggest cannabis business conference, then don’t wait to purchase your ticket for the 5th Annual Marijuana Business Conference & Expo. Coming to the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from November 15-18, 2016, this conference and expo attracts industry professionals and interested individuals from all over the world, and it’s for a good reason.
All levels of professionals will be at this event, from industry veterans to new, emerging brands. The event will draw over 7,500 attendees, who will find 321 exhibitors and 80 speakers at this largescale event. Every sector of the cannabis industry will be present at the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo—ancillary products and tech, dispensaries and recreational retailers, infused cannabis product manufacturers, private equity investors, professional and financial services, testing labs and wholesale growers.
This year’s event is bigger and better than ever, with three brand-new features happening this month. First, there will be a full-day workshop for business professionals. The MJBizCon Science Symposium will give attendees the opportunity to meet top scientists. The basics of plants and therapies will be explained, while new research discoveries and advanced case studies will also give attendees further insight into the science of cannabis. Additionally, the science of cannabis wouldn’t be complete without a lesson on therapeutic research, testing approaches and extraction methods. This is taking place on Tuesday, November 15, the day before the main MJBizCon begins.
Another exciting feature of MJBizCon will the “The Dispensary Experience.” This interactive walk-through display of a cannabis dispensary gives attendees the ability to check out the cutting-edge equipment, technology and design of a top dispensary. The shop will not be selling products; instead it is used to educate attendees about best business practices.
Finally, a very exciting feature of this event is that 33 percent of the exhibitors are brand-new! That’s right—the exhibitor hall is sold out and one-third have never had a booth at MJBizCon before.
Like the years before, this event will feature expert speakers from all avenues of the cannabis industry. The two keynote speakers of the event are Penn Jillette and Juliette Funt. Penn Jillette is a Libertarian, author and entertainer who is well-known as one-half of the duo, Penn & Teller. Juiliette Funt is the CEO of WhiteSpace at Work, and she will be giving a speech on “Activity is Not Productivity: Tools to Optimize Your Cannabis Workday.”
Other highlights for this year’s event include a Win, Lose or Draw, which is a 2016 Election Postgame. There will also be brand-new presentation and panels throughout the week. These educational opportunities will provide insight into topics like “The Big Shift: Transitioning from MMJ to Rec,” “Finding & Keeping a Bank,” “Cultivation Roundtables” and many more.
MJBizCon will also have a course offered for any newbies to the cannabis industry on November 15, which is entitled Marijuana Business Crash Course. On Wednesday evening there will be a #MJBizCon Mixer Industry Celebration & Benefit Event, where the top industry leaders will network and enjoy the evening. Plus, all proceeds for ticket sales to the mixer go toward fighting for cannabis legalization.
Out of all the cannabis events out there, Marijuana Business Conference & Expo is the one event you cannot miss. With top exhibitors, speakers, education and more, you and your business will benefit greatly by attending this exclusive event.
