As an exhibitor at a NECANN event, you will have the opportunity to connect with a highly engaged and diverse audience of cannabis industry professionals from across the New England region. Our approach is unique in that we focus on the current state and potential of each local market we visit, rather than taking a generic national approach.

Our conventions are a result of a collaborative approach with local industries and communities, which has resulted in consistently high returns for exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, and the local cannabis market as a whole. By participating in a NECANN event, you will have the opportunity to showcase your products and services to a highly targeted audience, while also gaining valuable insights and connections within the industry.

Grow With NECANN

Since its humble beginning in 2014, before the Massachusetts medical cannabis program was fully operational and recreational cannabis was still just a dream, the New England Cannabis Convention has grown into the largest B2B cannabis industry event in the country. NECANN has become a vital hub for resources and communication for businesses, entrepreneurs, cultivators, advocates, patients, investors, educators, and consumers alike in the Northeast and beyond.
