How did MJBizCon get started and who is behind it?

Back when MJBizDaily first launched, there was no national trade show for cannabis. Our editors felt the industry needed a way to come together as a business community, hear about the latest advances and network in person. So, in 2012, we made history by launching MJBizCon, the industry’s very first national trade show.

I have a small child; can I bring them to the show?

Due to the nature of the industry, all our shows are strictly for persons 18 years or older. In accordance with local laws, no one under the age 19 will be permitted to attend MJBizConINTL. We do not allow small children to accompany their parents at our events, so please plan accordingly.

Failure to respect this rule will result in revocation of event access, without refund.

If I missed the submission deadline, can I still be considered as a speaker?

We have a defined deadline to submit for each conference to ensure smooth processes on our end and so we can consolidate the speaker vetting process. We encourage you to apply for other shows, as you might be considered for a different event.

What are the speaker application deadlines for each event?

Visit the 2020 Speaker Application page and the deadline to apply will be listed on the application page for each show.

How can I follow up on a speaker submission?

Speakers will receive a confirmation email once you submit the application. (The email may go into your spam/junk folder.)

Due to the overwhelming number of submissions we receive, our Conference Content team does their best to reach out to speaker applications as soon as they can. It is good to note that start curating the content early for each conference, so those accepted to speak at a given conference will be notified near the deadline to apply for that conference.

For further questions or concerns, contact our Conference Content team at [email protected].

When will I know if I have been selected to speak?

You will receive an acceptance or denial email within 30 days of the application deadline.

Will I be compensated for speaking? How about expense reimbursement?

The primary benefit for speaking at an MJBizCon event is the exposure to your peers as knowledge, respected expert in your field to our attendee audience consisting of industry executives, high-level professionals and investors.

In addition, all MJBizCon speakers receive a complementary conference registration for the speaker and a discounted pass for a guest. These passes include full access to Main Conference sessions and the Expo Floor for the event; any add-ons can be purchases for an additional fee.

I am a confirmed speaker; how can I register? How do I register a guest?

Once you have been confirmed as a speaker you will receive your complimentary registration via email and along with steps on how to register a guest.

My company is sponsoring the conference and/or has a booth at the event. Do I get to speak, or will I be given special consideration?

We maintain a strict separation between our editorial and sales divisions. This approach ensures valuable, non-promotional and highly curated content at our events, and attracts the high-quality attendees which sponsors and exhibitors want to meet.

All speakers are evaluated on their expertise, what topics they can speak to, their proposed session ideas and a host of other factors not tied to exhibiting or sponsoring.

This separation between content and sales is a core pillar of our business philosophy, and we do not deviate from it.

Can I repurpose presentation content from another event I recently spoke at?

We require speakers to present fresh material, not simply recycle presentations they’ve given in the past. Your speaker submission should reflect this requirement.

What happens after I get selected to speak?

If you are selected to speak you will be contacted by our Conference Content team with more information.
