MJBizCon Las Vegas Will Be A Weeklong In 2019
The event’s expansion reflects the rapid growth of the global cannabis industry.
The cannabis world is currently in the middle of what has become one of the largest and most important industry events: MJBizCon.
Hosted in Las Vegas, the annual conference and trade show has seen explosive growth in recent years. So much so that the city of Las Vegas has just announced plans to extend the event. Beginning next year, the three-day expo will become a weeklong cannabis event.
Introducing “MJBizCon Week”
This year’s MJBizCon kicked off this week in Las Vegas. It started on Wednesday, November 14, and ends on Friday, Nov. 16. The three-day event features a huge number of exhibits, presentations, and opportunities for cannabis players to network and learn more about what’s going on throughout the industry.
Yesterday, event organizers announced that the conference and trade show is going to expand to become a weeklong event. The change will begin next year.
The decision to launch MJBizCon Week was spearheaded by event organizers and officials from the city of Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada.
“The City of Las Vegas and Clark County have officially proclaimed the debut of ‘MJBizCon Week’ surrounding the annual MJBizCon Conference & Expo beginning in 2019,” organizers said in a press release.
According to the release, organizers and local officials chose to make the change after seeing how many people are now attending the annual conference. Extending the length of the event will allow for even more activity and could draw even more visitors.
In addition to expanding from three days to a week, the event is moving from mid-November to mid-December. The press release said that the first MJBizCon Week is scheduled for Dec. 9-13, 2019.
More specifically, the official MJBizCon Conference and Expo show will take place Dec. 11-13. Prior to that, the first two days of the week will feature new events and activities. So far, planners have not specified exactly what new features the extended event will include.
