On March 26, 2020, the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) delayed the annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo to September 29 through October 1, 2020 due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The event will still be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The expo was previously scheduled to take place from June 15-17, 2020. According to the NCIA, all attendee and exhibitor registrations will be honored.
"The health and safety of our members, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, visitors, and staff is our number one priority," said Aaron Smith, NCIA executive director, in a statement. "We understand the concerns that many of our members may be feeling as we move forward into unknown territory. However, our industry is used to weathering the worst of storms and thriving in the harshest environments."
Under the revised schedule, workshops, tours and education panels will start on September 29 and exhibits will open from September 30 to October 1.
The show is still projected to attract thousands of cannabis industry professionals that span across industries, including cultivation, extraction, investment, science laboratories, law, infused product manufacturers and retail.
