It’s nearly time to put 2020 behind us and jump into the 2021 conference season. Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis trade show veteran waiting to get back to the expo floor or looking to attend a hemp convention or psychedelics conference for the first time, you’ve found the best list of psychedelic, cannabis, cbd and hemp trade shows.
What a year we’re putting behind us. Going from attending some of our favorite cannabis conventions to watching from quarantine as the majority of events were canceled or smartly shifted to a digital format was a sight to see. We love making connections and were really looking forward to attending the classics, like the MJBiz series, NCIA and the Benzinga Cannabis Capital conferences, plus meeting the new players at a few psychedelics trade shows, but in many ways this year off has been really beneficial. It’s given us the chance to reflect on the work we do in public relations, marketing and search engine optimization (SEO), the ways we give back (like our monthly mixer) and the amazing team we have that makes our culture and the work we do so phenomenal. The coronavirus has given all cannabis, hemp and CBD businesses the chance to step back and prepare to grow even stronger in 2021, and we know conferences are doing the same.
Out of necessity the virtual conference grew to be one of the lifesavers of 2020, and when the world moves beyond COVID-19 we expect to see digital networking continue into 2021 and beyond. As an all remote team, we understand the importance of location neutral events. Yet, we really can’t wait until it’s time to put on our most comfortable shoes and walk those miles of expo floors. So while you envision with us about the next show to attend, check out our list of virtual and in person events to aid in your future planning.
