Show Overview

Note: Unlike this 2019 photo, MJBizCon is doubling space in 2021 for safety. More info on COVID safety.

Every year, more cannabis industry deals get done at MJBizCon than any other event by far.

If you are seeking partnerships, business advice, investors, career connections, new products and services or to network with industry peers, MJBizCon is the place to do it.

This year, we’re doubling our space for COVID safety so you can attend in person without feeling like it’s too crowded. Plus, we’re offering digital-only registrations to those who can’t make it to Las Vegas. Lastly, to cut down on entry lines, pre-registration is now required. Thanks for your understanding.

Agenda

When you’re not walking the massive Expo floor and networking with peers at our evening events, don’t miss our 2021 keynote speaker Daymond John, Founder/CEO of FUBU, Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, and Star of ABC’s Shark Tank and CEO of The Shark Group.

Plus, in addition to your choice of four pre-show Forums on Tuesday, October 19 (the day before the Expo floor opens), the main show features 28+ sessions.

Each session is exclusive to MJBizCon and curated by our in-house experts, the journalists behind the award-winning MJBizDaily news service. Many of the speakers are new to the Con and the topics address today’s top business challenges.

And don’t miss the content for the Day 1 Opening General Session. It’ll start with the ‘State of the Industry and Predictions’ – everything you need to keep your business on course in 2022. Plus, new for 2021 are the event’s eye-opening key panels:

  • Reality Check: A Deep Dive Into U.S. Cannabis Legalization – Is Your Business Prepared?

Tips for First Timers

Unlike lifestyle shows, everyone at MJBizCon is there to do business or grow their career. You won’t find any cannabis or THC products in the Expo Floor (exhibitors use other plants as stand ins), you will find friendly experts in every aspect of the industry who are looking forward to connecting with you.

The dress code is business casual. The Expo Floor is the size of 5 football fields so wear comfortable shoes. (BTW: Yes, it’s ADA accessible).

Be sure to post in your own social media – such as LinkedIn – that you’ll be at the MJBizCon so others can make plans to meet you. If you don’t know many people, don’t worry – this is one of the friendliest conferences you’ll ever attend.

In-Person vs Digital

Choose digital if you...

  • Are not able to travel due to restrictions
  • Want to enjoy a few livestreamed sessions from the comfort of your office
  • Would like to view virtual booths from vendors, who are happy to answer product and service questions via DM

Choose in person if you...

  • Want the Complete MJBizCon Experience
  • Are ready to connect with peers, speakers and experts in person
  • Are hoping to land investors or key partners
  • Have never been to an MJBizCon or have been to *every* MJBizCon
  • Want to see all the latest products on the Expo floor in real life
