The event is said to be the largest gathering of cannabis professionals worldwide 

Thousands upon thousands of cannabis professionals are descending on Las Vegas for the MJBiz Conference, being held from Dec. 11 to 13.

Organizers say “there is no place like it to equip your business for growth,” with a whopping 35,000 people expected to attend from 75 countries, including more than 1,500 CEOs, more than 8,000 executives, 1,250-plus investors and more than 1,300 exhibitors. 

“MJBizCon Week is more than MJBizCon – it’s where the entire cannabis industry comes together to learn, network, explore, reward and get business done,” organizers add. “We’ve pulled together an outstanding program of associated events and add-ons to ensure that everyone has the chance to meet their communities and make the connections that will advance their businesses during the first official MJBizCon Week.

The event is so massive that it’s been proclaimed MJBizCon Week by the Board of Clark County Commissioners and the City of Las Vegas.

Although the conference kicked off on Wednesday, the week’s events began on Monday, Dec. 9 with an Investor Intelligence Conference and is said to provide a “premium resource for the balanced and unbiased market intelligence, realistic projections and insider analysis needed to navigate the hemp and cannabis industry.”

This two-day event aims to “connects high net worth and accredited investors tied to family offices, banks, venture capitalists, hedge funds and institutional investment firms with the forecasts and data crucial to making informed decisions.”

Meantime, the week also includes the MJ Biz Daily Awards set for Thursday night (Dec. 12), to recognize excellence in the industry. 

Keynote speaker of the MjBizCon is none other than Marc Randolph, founder CEO of Netflix and veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur.

“The series of events including and surrounding the world’s largest cannabis industry B2B event, MJBizCon, has been proclaimed MJBizCon Week by the Board of Clark County Commissioners and the City of Las Vegas, honoring MJBizCon’s increase in global recognition, rapid-expanding attendance and significant impact beyond the convention center walls,” organizers note.
