Buyers Industry Guide

Las Vegas Convention Center

Las Vegas, NV

 

The fall Marijuana Business Conference & Expo has been named the nation’s fastest-growing trade show, yet another indication of the cannabis industry’s increasing prominence on the national stage.

The event, hosted by Marijuana Business Daily, led the pack last year in growth in attendees, net square feet of paid exhibit space, and number of exhibitors, Trade Show Executive announced at “The Fastest 50” awards ceremony Thursday night in Las Vegas.

Trade Show Executive ranks the nation’s 50 fastest-growing trade shows by annual percentage growth in each of those three areas.

“While this is a great honor and recognition for the team behind the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo, it is truly a testament to the economic power of our market and validation for the need for our national trade show and conference as a key catalyst for the industry,” George Jage, president and publisher of Marijuana Business Daily, said.

The event beat out scores of mainstream trade shows both small and large, including those focused on everything from construction and plastics to fashion and specialty coffee.

Trade Show Executive, which provides news and analysis for professionals who run trade shows, selects winners based on the highest percentage of growth in each category. Trade shows must meet certain baselines to be considered.

The fall Marijuana Business Conference & Expo, held in Las Vegas each November, grew from just over 16,000 square feet of exhibitor space in 2014 to 30,000 square feet last year. The number of exhibiting companies shot up nearly 65%, to 233 from 142, while total attendance jumped 73%, to 5,561.

The 2016 fall conference is expected to draw 7,500 industry professionals and 300 exhibitors in 43,000 net square feet of space. It is Marijuana Business Daily‘s fifth annual fall conference.

2018 Conventions

January 13 & 14, Lift Cannabis Expo, Vancouver, Canada

Buyers Industry Guide

Vancouver Convention Centre

Vancouver, Canada

We set out to create a landmark event for the Canadian cannabis market with our first Lift Expo in Toronto this past May. Having sold out the show to over 130 exhibitors from across North America and Europe more than two months out, we felt we were on the right track. Now that the show has wrapped and we witnessed 10,000 excited and engaged attendees come through the doors to help make the expo Canada’s best cannabis show ever (view highlights here), we know we’re building something that Canadians want and need.

As the Canadian market continues to grow, fuelled by the federal government’s ongoing support for legalization, we’re excited to now invite you to join us in Vancouver on September 17 and 18, 2016 for our second Lift Cannabis Expo.

Vancouver has a colourful and proud history of being at the forefront of cannabis commerce, innovation, and activism not just in Canada, but the world. What’s more, the city’s recent (and unprecedented) move to regulate cannabis storefronts is once again positioning Vancouver as an innovator in sensible drug policy and industry. Add to this the federal government’s requirement to improve access to Canada’s existing world-leading medical cannabis program (an improvement which many speculate will incorporate home-growing), and opportunities will undoubtedly be very interesting and substantial come September.

The Lift Cannabis Expo is an important step in showing the world the professionalism and maturity of the expanding cannabis industry. By getting involved in Vancouver’s Lift Expo, you’ll be joining leading businesses from around the globe showcasing some of the best products and services the industry has to offer to thousands of eager and curious consumers.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

March 18 – 21, Grass Valley, Nevada County Cup

Buyers Industry Guide

Grass Valley, CA

Our focus is on Science, Education, and Best Practices.

We set a new standard for judging medical cannabis quality, that is scientific and objective. Out event will not be a “smokefest,” like other cups. We admit they can be fun, but we don’t believe that judges can objectively and scientifically evaluate several samples of cannabis in one day. It is just not possible, and in fact, our judges do not evaluate any cannabis at the Cup.
