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

Format & topics:

The event will host two tracks during the day: advanced and beginner. Join us for a day that will cover topics from current retail/AUCC/AUCP/legacy operators as well as training for startups new to the industry. There will be keynote speakers, panel interviews and training sessions on considerations for new and legacy business owners during the day. Lightning-round business consultations will be available for attendees, in addition to multiple networking opportunities, lunch, a happy hour and more.

Returning attendees can expect to hear about updates in the industry and a more advanced conversation on topics that continue to affect the industry to date. Anyone getting started in the industry or applying for a business license will have an opportunity to hear about startup concepts from accounting to foundational business planning, insurance, real estate, retail concepts and medical marijuana.

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.
