Since 2012, MJBizCon has been one of the largest cannabis business conferences in the world, but this week the show received some bad news.
This week, the conference announced that the Las Vegas Convention Center will not host the in-person event this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
As a result, MJBizCon has been reformatted into a digital event experience with five weeks of content and networking opportunities.
MJBizCon 2020 will kick off with special sessions and networking opportunities starting November 2, 2020, Election Week.
Digital programming will include forums focused on specific markets: California, Canada, Latin America, and Europe, as well as days dedicated to the Investor Intelligence Conference, Science Symposium, and Hemp Forum.
The event will culminate in a main event from December 2-4, 2020, beginning with a State of the Industry presentation followed by a keynote from Whole Foods CEO John Mackey.
Mackey will present, “Conscious Capitalism in Cannabis,” which covers the four pillars for guiding a business in conducting socially responsible and ethical practices.
The digital event includes more than 60 sessions, 100s of new products and services, online roundtables, networking sessions and discussion groups.
Produced by MJBizDaily, the full digital event experience is available for $49, but some content will be made available for free to newcomers.
