CannaCon, the nation’s preeminent cannabis industry convention, is gearing up for its biggest and best event to date. CannaCon 2017 Boston will be hosted over three days, from July 13th - 15th in Boston’s historic Back Bay district at the Hynes Convention Center.

As a marketplace for cannabis-related education, innovative products, and businesses, the three-day conference provides an ideal platform for businesses and consumers. Anyone interested in the business of cannabis—from cannabis industry neophytes to seasoned industry professionals—will find plenty of learning and networking opportunities at CannaCon Boston. The schedule is jam-packed with a diverse group of speakers and events.

“We’re excited for CannaCon Boston, our most exciting and fun event to date,” said Bob Smart, founder of CannaCon. “While adult-use—or recreational—cannabis is legal in Massachusetts, CannaCon is serious about the business of cannabis. We’re a cannabis convention without the cannabis. And, our goal is to bring together the best and the brightest of the industry for three days of immersive learning and networking.”

Attendees Can Choose One of Three Pathways

Seminars are organized around three key points of focus or pathways:

Growers: Growers and cultivators can learn the basics of plant production and yield management with acknowledged industry leaders, or dive deep and get granular with seminars on topics like the practical use of microbes in cannabis cultivation.

Entrepreneurs: Entrepreneurs can learn about specific products—such as the explosively growing field of topical creams and oils—or take a step back and learn about higher-order business and marketing concepts.

Researchers: Scientists will find plenty of food for thought, whether it’s sharing in the wealth of new cannabis research now becoming available or exploring specific topics such as safety testing, 3rd-party certification and more.

One of the most-anticipated events, the “InCannaVest Investor Pitch Boston 2017,” makes its CannaCon debut on Friday, July 14, and Saturday, July 15, from 2:45pm EST - 3:45pm EST.
