Cannabis Events To Add To Your Calendar in 2020
The calendar has simply never had as many cannabis conventions, cannabis expo’s and cannabis conferences to choose from. A few years ago there were just a handful of cannabis events each year, now there is at least one every week. It has simply become impossible to attend all the cannabis trade shows, even for large established legal cannabis companies. But to try to make your options easier, here is a list of the main weed events in the 2020 calendar.
Upcoming Cannabis Events You Don’t Want To Miss
No matter where you live there should be some interesting upcoming cannabis events and marijuana shows near you. As well as cannabis themed trade shows, there are now plenty dedicated to hemp cultivation and CBD production/extraction.
As the market for cannabis is becoming increasingly sophisticated the number of cannabis conventions increases. You can even find niche cannabis trade shows which focus on narrow and highly specific angles, such as cannabis packaging or cannabis analytical testing equipment.
One noticeable trend in cannabis events is that a huge number of events have emerged which are dedicated to cannabis industry professionals. Perhaps this shouldn't be a surprise, cannabis is now a multi $billion industry and is one of the fastest emerging new industries.
We can’t include every cannabis event in 2020, but the list below shows you some of the more interesting weed events in 2020.
