Now that many of us have settled into our work-from-home routines, we’re also discovering new ways to take advantage of virtual experiences, such as industry conferences and events. Rather than catching a flight, booking a hotel and blocking off multiple days to hobnob with fellow attendees face-to-face—nowadays, all you need are an internet connection, web camera and email log-in to create meaningful industry connections and expand your market knowledge.

Cannabis Conference Virtual (taking place Sept. 15, 22, and 29) is making this possible by bringing together hundreds of industry professionals for the highest quality networking and education the cannabis market has to offer, all from the safety of your home or office.

It's a little different than attending a conference in-person, of course, so the Cannabis Conference Virtual staff put together a few tips to help you make the most of your experience at events like this.

You can read the full list here.

Here's one, for example:


Cannabis Conference Virtual’s education program includes most of the line-up from our originally scheduled in-person event. That means you’ll have your pick from dozens of sessions, with 65+ experts at the top of their game ready to share their insights with you. Just like an in-person event, you’ll want to peruse the program ahead of time to make sure you’re attending the sessions most relevant to your professional development. Our intuitive platform also includes a personalized schedule, so you can add your most desired sessions and networking breakouts in a streamlined calendar.

Cannabis Conference Virtual has made compartmentalizing your event time easier than ever! For instance, we’ve split our education into targeted tracks—so no matter where you are on your cannabis journey, you’ll be able to find sessions geared toward your needs.

  • Day 1 (Sept. 15) is our Launch, Expansion, and Business Day—so if you’re new to the industry or expanding your operations, this should be your first stop. On this day, attend sessions such as, “How to Launch a Cultivation Business,” “Growing a Brand,” “Embarking on the Hemp Journey,” “Monitoring and Improving Company Performance and Capital,” and “The Global Cannabis Market Forecast and Legal Landscape.”
  • Day 2 (Sept. 22) will be specifically geared toward Cultivation & Hemp professionals. This education track includes the in-depth sessions, “Lighting and Its Impact on Plant Growth and Cannabinoid Production: The Latest Research,” “Find Your Ideal Genetic Line-Up: Cannabis & Hemp,” and “Lean Management and Six Sigma in Cultivation and Farming.” Plus, experienced cultivation experts will share their lessons learned in a special spotlight session, and much more.
  • Day 3 (Sept. 29) is our Deal-Making Summit, as well as our Dispensary education day—which means you’ll have opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s biggest players as it relates to mergers & acquisitions, as well as how to optimize a retail operation. Sessions on this day include, “Using Data to Boost Sales” and “Dispensary Marketing: The Best Options for Growing Your Customer Base and Fostering Loyalty.”
