The Ultimate List Of 2019 Cannabis Conferences

NISONCO team members gather at MJBizCon.

Whether you’re in the cannabis reform movement or you’re a member of the industry, there’s really no better way to supercharge your network than a good conference, trade show or cannabis industry event.

Nothing helps you dig into the world around your networks like a deep dive through an expo floor, speaker’s panels, and presentations. These are valuable opportunities to connect with the community that glues us all together. Teamwork makes the dream work, after all!

This year there will be plenty of cannabis conference opportunities, but some have already come and gone. Pick your favorites now and make sure you get the chance you deserve to build out your canna-community.

There are a few places you can expect to see any serious industry player.

MJBizCon, for example, is the largest network of comprehensive conferences happening in the cannabis industry. You can be sure to find all the cannabis leaders and trendsetters attending, from entrepreneurs and companies to investors and regulatory allies.

Lift conferences are at the top of the game as well and have a similar regional spread and diversity of attendees.

If you’re focused on the larger reform community and issues of social responsibility, there’s also the Drug Policy Alliance and Students for Sensible Drug Policy conferences. Both are bringing their communities to the midwest in 2019.
