The Maine Cannabis Convention, billed as the largest B2B event in the state, will move from Portland to Augusta this year for its seventh annual gathering in a state where sales of recreational cannabis nearly doubled last year.
Since the Maine adult-use market’s first full month of operation in October 2020, the state’s industry saw new records set every month through August 2022, and by year-end the sales figures were still close to that peak (https://cnw.fm/vIKfh).
The 2023 Maine Cannabis Convention take place August 12-13th and will continue the series’ tradition of bringing together the region’s best speakers on multiple programming tracks, a congregation of decision-makers and cannabis/hemp business people attendees, and floorspace for exhibitors who display all kinds of products and services, ranging from cultivation to accounting.
The details are still coming together but, if the previous conventions are any indicator, attendees can expect to mingle with hundreds of delegates and about 150 exhibitors.
Businesses interested in exhibition space can register at https://cnw.fm/lJuH4. More than 50 booth spaces have already been reserved, including a spot for last year’s Vape Cartridge NECANN Cup winner HIGHTECH Labs.
The NECANN Cup is the largest cannabis competition in New England and provides an opportunity for innovators to shine, particularly in the crowded marketplace that Maine’s cannabis industry has become.
This year, the convention will work in partnership with the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine (MMCM) to combine the annual event with MMCM’s HomeGrown TradeShow, bringing patients and their caregiver advocates into the mix.
Medical-use cannabis has been allowed in Maine since 1999, with voter-approved dispensary and state registry becoming legal a decade later (https://cnw.fm/ak38n). The MMCM was organized in 2010 as a volunteer trade association dedicated to the support and promotion of safe access to medical marijuana, and the MMCM HomeGrown TradeShow is now in its 11th year of scheduled events in Augusta.
- Combining for the first time with the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine’s (MMCM’s) HomeGrown TradeShow in Augusta, Maine, for the largest B2B cannabis industry event in the state
- Taking place Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 12-13
- About 150 business exhibitors expected, with more than 50 already registered
- Attendees include decision-makers and cannabis/hemp business people for those interested in networking
- Competition for the NECANN Cup in a variety of categories
Behind the scenes:
Since 2014, the New England Cannabis Convention (NECANN) has sponsored events including annual conferences in celebration of hemp, medical marijuana and adult cannabis use, and the organization is widely known as a leading force in the adoption and celebration of cannabis consumption from Maine to Oklahoma as the popularity and legality of the market continues to spread.
