As entrepreneurs and cannabis professionals are preparing to move forward in the billion-dollar legal weed industry, NY Cannabis Insider hosts live events that allow participants to learn about regulations, make connections, establish teams, and prepare to launch/grow businesses. 

Format & topics:

NY Cannabis Insider will host the state's first cannabis "summit" of 2023, where industry professionals – from growers, processors and retailers to attorneys, consultants and politicians – will gather for a day of venting and problem-solving.

The event will be organized such that the morning session will be dedicated to airing grievances from all angles of the industry, while the afternoon session will be focused on proposed solutions. View the topics we'll be discussing and solutioning here.

The summit will also host panel discussions throughout the day in a secondary room focused on retail operations, current regulations, best practices and other topics. Lightning-round business consultations will be available for attendees, in addition to multiple networking opportunities, lunch, a happy hour and much more.

Your ticket provides you with all-access to this all-day event, full access to our vendor fair with complimentary consultation sessions courtesy of select vendors, happy hour, lunch, on-site networking and access to thought leaders and experts in the cannabis industry.

Who attends & what to expect:

Join cannabis business owners and other industry professionals such as growers, legacy operators, and supporters for a day of actionable industry insights discussed by thought leaders. There will be an abundance of networking time to connect with others working in the cannabis space. The conference will also feature onsite vendors helping cannabis entrepreneurs build out their business team, as well as lightning-round consultations to answer questions about accounting, legal, and other considerations specific to cannabis businesses.
