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 another cannabis conference and summit, where industry professionals – from growers, processors and retailers to attorneys, consultants and politicians – will gather for a day of learning, venting and problem-solving. Our events are always evolving and changing based on the needs of the industry.

This year, we've hosted a "problems and solutions" summit where the morning session was dedicated to airing grievances from all angles of the industry, while the afternoon session focused on proposed solutions for the same topics (DASNY, the June 1 cultivation deadline, legacy/enforcement, medical marijuana, and the 4/20 bill). Most recently we hosted a "state of the cannabis industry" to share unique perspectives from several key stakeholders, such as cultivators, processors, retailers, politicians, attorneys, and medical operators.

As we get closer to the November event date, we will publish a survey of topics to determine what attendees want to focus on and announce the format/agenda.

The event will also host keynote speakers/interviews during the day. Lightning-round business consultations will be available for attendees, in addition to multiple networking opportunities, lunch, a happy hour and more.

Your ticket provides you with all-access to this all-day conference, 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.
