The New England Cannabis Network will be hosting the 2016 New England Cannabis Convention at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston April 23 and 24. With over 120 industry vendors, and more than 60 local and national cannabis experts and health care speakers, this will be the N.E. Region’s largest cannabis industry event in 2016. Industry growth is explosive, with legal Cannabis sales in the U.S. projected to gross $16.7 billion dollars in 2016, and grow to over $20 billion by 2019. The Convention will focus on helping New Englanders get involved in this amazing opportunity.
Programming for the event will feature four complete tracks covering all aspects of the industry:
(1) Cannabis careers, businesses, and investment opportunities, (2) Marijuana as medicine, (3) Live demos on growing, cloning, tinctures, and more, and (4) Opportunities in the hemp industry. The event will also feature the first annual N.E. Cannabis Film Festival, showing a curated selection of short cannabis-related films from around the world.
Attendees at the event will also have the opportunity to network with the over 120 local and national cannabis industry businesses, speak with doctors and health care providers, explore investment and career opportunities, connect with advocacy groups, see the latest developments in lighting, soil, and growing equipment, and shop a huge variety of the latest smoking, vaping, and storage accessories. After hosting a series of four smaller successful events in 2015 (with over 10,000 attendees total), NECANN is excited to bring the focus of the New England Medical Marijuana community back to Massachusetts with the Cannabis Convention. “Over the last 12 months, huge progress has been made towards the normalization of cannabis use in New England, and around the country. With legalization votes possible in as many as four New England states in 2016, we want to help create a networking hub for the local caregivers, patients, advocates, businesses, investors, and entrepreneurs to meet and grow,” said Marc Shepard, Co-Founder of NECANN. “For anyone who is interested in seeing the true scope of the local cannabis industry, including its benefits and enormous potential, this is the place to be.” The show is 18+ (children under 18 must be accompanied by adult), and no smoking or vaping is allowed in the building. Registration for the event can be bought online at: www.NECANN.com. A limited amount of tickets will also be available at the Hynes Convention Center on show days.
