When it comes to networking and opportunities to learn about all the latest changes going in on in the cannabis industry, the MJBizCon experience is unparalleled. Me personally, I’ve gone to the last four events and every single year is bigger and better than the years prior. A unique aspect about this year’s show, is that there seems to be a larger focus on networking and general socializing, with various efforts having been made to make it easier for attendees to do both.

About the show
Now in its 11th year running, MJBizCon holds the reputation of being the “number 1 global cannabis business conference and tradeshow”; and it’s easy to see why. With over 1,400 exhibitors, more than 140 speakers, and 320,000 square feet of exhibitor space, this is definitely the one industry trade show that you never want to miss.
Starting off, there will be a number of beneficial and educational pre-show forums for attendees to choose from including the MJBiz Finance Forum, MJBiz CBD and Hemp Forum, MJBiz Marketing Forum, MJBiz Science Symposium, reMind Psychedelics Business Forum, and Associations Day (dedicated to non-profits in the industry, over 40 of which are already registered).
What will be different about this year’s show, as far as organization goes, is that the entire floor will be categorized by four distinct segmented pavilions to help you pinpoint the exhibitors, network with ease, and not waste time wandering aimlessly through the entire space (we all know how easy it is to get disoriented and lose track of important booths when you’re there).
The four pavilions will be:
- Cultivation Products and Services
- Processing, Packaging and Lab Services
- Retail and Dispensary
- Business Services
There will also be a couple of on-floor lounges where you can relax, recharge, and possibly have some fun impromptu meetups – such as The Joint lounge and Elevation lounge. Also brand new this year will be The Patio, which is an outdoor hangout spot for chill and organic networking opportunities. It will be open daily and includes a DJ, fun outdoor games, food trucks, a 360-degree photo booth, private lounges for VIP meetings, shaded seating, and other amenities.
Will Biden be there?
When it comes to cannabis industry trade shows, and especially the larger ones like MJBizCon, we have seen that some years are bigger than others. While they do grow consecutively every year as the industry expands, some years they experience a much bigger jump in attendee numbers. Some of the most noticeable increases reported, have come during election years.
Right now, we have recreational cannabis legalization on ballots in four different states (Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, and North Dakota), and a few others looking to legalize medical marijuana. And during this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be up for grabs, and federal cannabis legalization depends largely on who is in congress.
According to event organizers, President Joe Biden was formally invited to MJBizCon this year, following some recent pardons and statements he made, and in hopes that he will offer some clarity regarding what he plans on doing to help facilitate progressive cannabis reform; and when he plans to do it, since many promises have until now, gone unfulfilled.
When and where
As usual, MJBizCon will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center at 3150 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. The 2021 convention was a bit early in the year and a lot of our friends from the cultivation sectors were unable to make it, so this year’s event will be a month later than the previous one.
The official dates are November 15th to 18th, with the 15th reserved for pre-show forums and the 16th, 17th, and 18th as official show days. You can save $200 if you get your tickets between now and October 27th. You can also get an additional 10% off using the coupon code “22TCS10”.
And since it’s Vegas, there’s a number of hotels nearby that you can stay at, you can start by checking here for partnering locations. Also, there will be MJBizCon-affiliated afterparties, as well as endless options for local entertainment.
