As the new year approaches, many of us are busy with holiday preparations and all that goes with that.

But if you’re a cannabis business owner, you may want to think about which cannabis conferences for 2023 you’re going to attend. After all, with the exponential growth this industry experiences, tickets are going quickly.

As cannabis marketing and public relations specialists, we like to offer our clients a wide array of these conferences with options all over the country. The following is our short list.

Cannatech Expo – February 14-17, 2023

Among the fastest growing sectors in the cannabis industry is tech. And the world’s first CannaTech Expo covers just that. This important conference covers everything in the cannabis technology spectrum from IT infrastructure to technologies that support dispensaries as well as growing, processing, and manufacturing operations.

An added bonus? It’s in Fort Lauderdale. So if you live in a cold weather climate, this is the icing on the cake. Whatever the case, Cannatech Expo looks to be one of the most important shows of the year.

The Emerald Conference – March 1-3, 2023

For the science-minded in the industry, there’s the Emerald Conference in San Diego (another warm weather destination). 2023 will mark the eighth year of this interdisciplinary cannabis science event. It’s the ultimate forum for discussion on discovery science – with numerous speakers and exhibits that demonstrate the ways in which science and data support best practices in cultivation, production, and quality assurance.

If your focus is on extraction science, R&D, analytical testing, formulations, cultivation science, and/or pre-clinical research, this is a must-attend event.

Michigan CannabisTech Expo – May 3 to 4, 2023

Ah, Michigan (Mt. Pleasant specifically) in the spring. You never quite know what you’re going to get.

But at the Michigan CannabisTech Expo – the largest Cannabis Business Expo in the Midwest – you can count on over 40,000 square feet of the top cannabis industry suppliers offering the latest in production technology. There will also be dozens of expert-led seminars covering a wide array of topics from licensing to hiring to banking, and more.

It’s an invaluable place to gain information on this profitable and expanding market.

CannaCon West Albuquerque – May 19 – 20, 2023

Maybe the U.S. southwest is more your speed in the spring. If so, start making your plans to head to New Mexico for CannaCon West Albuquerque.

CannaCon will take care of all of our business needs. As their website states, “From seed to seed money.

Exhibit at CannaCon to ensure your business is part of an elite group of Industry professionals who are speaking to the right target audience at the right time.”

Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition NYC – June 1-3, 2023

If you’re looking for an excuse to get away to the Big Apple before the searing summer heat, the CWCBExpo is a great one.

With New York and the entire tri-state area becoming one of the largest cannabis and hemp economic sectors in the country, this conference is chock full of educational and relevant sessions to help you develop your brand, look for investors, and increase efficiencies.

And when you’re not busy with that, you have some of the world’s greatest dining and entertainment at your beck and call.

MJBizCon – November 28 – December 1st, 2023

Skipping way ahead to the holiday season of 2023, there’s the MJBizCon in Las Vegas. If you can’t make it to any other cannabis conferences for 2023, do your best to get to this one. From professional grow and processing equipment to financial services, this conference boasts more than 1,400 industry suppliers in attendance.

And there are four distinct segmented pavilions to get you to the specific exhibitors you’re seeking in:

  • Cultivation Products & Services
  • Processing, Packaging & Lab Services
  • Retail & Dispensary
  • Business Services

Finally, if heading out onto the wild streets of Vegas isn’t exactly your thing, you can relax and recharge at ‘The Joint’ and ‘Elevation Lounge’ right on the expo hall floor. They’re the perfect spots to meet-up, rehydrate, and have some fun with other attendees.
