Exhibitor Testimonials and Convention Highlight Videos

NECANN Conventions are not just a walk into one booth, look and go to the next. You are getting a lot of good conversation. You are getting a lot of good contacts. It is truly unique to some of the other conventions.
Bryan Davis
Aurora Innovations
I had an expectation that NECANN would be a lot smaller than it actually is, but there are hundreds of people here, all with the same goal. They want to be part of this industry. They want to see it done right. You have everything here from cultivation to retail.
Rodney Holcombe
LeafLink
The foot traffic here today in Albany has been excellent. These exhibits come with seminars that cover everything from starting a business to compliance. Just being able to soak up as much game, as much knowledge as possible, is such a pivotal thing. It’s awesome that it’s all provided under one roof here. I love it.
Chris Barnes
Eagle Eyes Transport
We love displaying at NECANN events. It’s always great. Not only is this a new market, but it’s a mixture of hobby growers, commercial growers, and people just out to see what’s going on in the industry… We are able to connect with new people, we see old friends here, and the networking that goes on here at NECANN is really unmatched. Anyone who is looking to get in the cannabis industry or looking to see what’s going on, should definitely either display here or attend this convention.

This has been a really great platform to connect with both people in the industry and in the general public alike. We’ve met many interesting, motivated people who are passionate about educating the masses about cannabis. I couldn't think of a better opportunity for someone who is starting out and has a small business, to really get their name out there.
Paulina Miklosz
Higher Med LLC
We had a really good weekend at the booth. We’ve been buzzing the whole time. A lot of folks have been coming to check out the brand so we really enjoyed it.

Necann is one of the best events across the country that you can attend to further your business, to learn, network, create partnerships, and have an incredible experience.
Akash Govil
Zencorn
From the credit card processing, to the banking, to growing the product we use, it’s been amazing meeting everybody here from all over the United States
Felicia Glasper
Roasted and Toasted
You could speak to ten people in the space of an hour that would take you a month at home trying to figure out that same information. Just the ability to talk to so many people in a short amount of time is awesome.
Oliver Hoad
APPI Energy
Compared to other conferences, not only is NECANN more economical, but the connections we make here are better than what we make at pretty much any other convention we’ve been to. NJ show was potentially the best 'I've attended. Or right up there. You hit the nail on the head for getting a mainly B2B non-consumer crowd, and the vibe was great.
Rick Lavene
Accounting Buds
Busiest show I have attended yet. The leads will pay off in time.
Rod Brady

NECANN is the BEST place to do business.

Kate Holste

This is where you gotta show up if you want to be known in Massachusetts. If you’re launching any product that’s related to the cannabis Industry- this is the place to do it.
Kyle Ronellenfitch

New England and Massachusetts come together as a cannabis community from cultivators, producers, and processors. This is the show to attend.

The show is drawing more quality exhibitors and that leads to better networking. We had a couple of new deals that we struck up that will have a big impact on our business going forward. More out of state customers, investors and engineering are interested in locating in MA and we meet them here.
Gary Arnold
TSRgrow
To see how the crowds have grown is unbelievable. We’re very selective about the shows we do; we never miss NECANN.
Lisa Keyser

Of all the shows I attended, NECANN in Boston was the best as far as large-scale cultivators in New England, with state licensed cultivators from Maine, NH, Mass, Conn, and RI all there

This is my 2nd NECANN show, we will definitely be at all that NECANN puts together. We started with the Boston show which was awesome and this ME show although smaller was a positive surprise. Very good all-around with plenty of room to grow.
Very strong event bringing together the Cannabis business in the Northeast very well.
Amazing show. Well done, well attended, and the vendors I spoke to made great contacts and sales.

The ability to speak to 10 people in an hour that would take a month to reach from my office is such a massive benefit to us.
Oliver Hoard
APPI Energy
We met local craft growers as well as people flying in to attend necann who are trying to get into the Illinois industry. It was so amazing for people to be able to really get actionable items here across a range of topics, which is really great.

This is definitely the best one I’ve been to in Connecticut. Incredible turn-out. We had a lot of vendors and people walking through, so it’s definitely been a positive experience.

Mahlon James
Paybotic
It’s the best event hands down, just Necanns where it's at.
Maggie Singh

We experienced the best show we had in years in New Jersey. NECANN is the best in the industry, we’ve paid 3x the cost with others that can’t bring half of the quality attendees that necann does every single show!

It’s been a great show, I can’t believe how packed it is, we’re definitely going to come back.

Keven Clark
Tom’s Tumble Trimmer
We have attended other Necann events, we’ve never had a booth and unfortunately for me, that’s a missed opportunity in the past but looking forward we will be here present at every single one.
Paul Evangelista
Needham Bank
We’re making a lot of connections with dispensaries and we’re also making a lot of new connections with consumers that come straight up and they’re asking their local dispensaries like why don’t you have this product, so it’s working and we’re winning on both ends as far as that.
Sean Rand
Novel Beverage Co.
I see each year there are more and more attendees, more vendors; these are multi-state, and even international companies that are now coming here. I’d recommend necann to anyone, either exhibiting or attending. We’ll absolutely be back.
BarbaraEric Roiter Jacobs
Surna Cultivation Technologies
One of the main reasons we come to necann is to connect with cultivators, and the movers and shakers in the local market.

From Exhibitor Surveys:

The attendance at NECANN was one of the best we have exhibited at over the last 3 years.

It was our first time having a booth at NECANN, we truly appreciated the diversity in vendors and attendees.

This show brought together a healthy mix of industry businesses, consumers, and advocates.
The quality and volume of attendees were outstanding.

NECANN is THE event for New England cannabis entrepreneurs, investors, patients.

This event was absolutely amazing! We will be vending here every year!

I couldn’t believe the turnout at the NECANN a lot more than I was even wishing for.

I enjoyed the time, was able to network with many existing clients in one building.
