Who We Are

NECANN has been developing engaging conventions for the Cannabis industry since 2014,  expanding market opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, educators, patients, advocates, and consumers. We feel our approach of creating unique conventions focused on the current state and potential of each local market we come to is a superior alternative to the generic national canna-convention franchises that pop up everywhere. Rather than focusing on what the Cannabis Industry can do for us, NECANN takes a collaborative approach with the local industries and communities for our conventions, which has resulted in consistently high returns for exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, and the local cannabis market as a whole, allowing everyone to benefit and grow.
