Why It’s Worth Attending
- Networking and Capitalizing on Social Interaction
MJBizCon draws in 35,000 attendees every year, over the span of only three days. For any conference, the true value of attending comes from engaging with other attendees, and capitalizing on those interactions. This could happen in a miasma of ways depending on your company, from future business deals to marketing opportunities. With such a high concentration of industry professionals in one place at one time, the networking possibilities — and the opportunities they provide — are boundless.
- Expand Your Horizons, Especially Beyond Your Specialization
Conferences are a marvelous way to see a slurry of all that is new and exciting across an industry, as well as gain professional development and knowledge. Whether you’re attending an official agenda-based MJBizCon session or simply asking questions at one of the more than 1,300 booths, you’re guaranteed to learn something new.
- Troubleshoot Business Problems
With more than 8,000 cannabiz executives in attendance, MJBizCon is the perfect opportunity to harness professional brainpower for free, and you should take full advantage of it. In the era of email it can be difficult to stand out when trying to contact a fellow business for help or advice, but conferences offer the opportunity to speak face-to-face with professionals from various facets of the industry.
- Share Your Ideas and Work
There’s no better place than MJBizCon to show off what you’ve been working on, as there are more than 1,250 investors and 1,500 CEOs in attendance. If you’re new to the industry completely, be sure to look into the extremely popular and lauded Marijuana Business Crash Course.
