With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the New England Cannabis Convention, or NECANN, to move its annual event online, the group says its planning what is the largest digital cannabis industry event in the world.
NECANN Online will run from Sept. 14 to 16, with more than 500 exhibitors and more than 50 programming sessions that cover topics like technology and innovation, growing and extraction, business and careers, hemp, CBD, medical marijuana, and social justice and equity.
Additionally, NECANN is rescheduling three fall conventions to new dates in 2021.
“As disappointed as we are to not be able to hold our in-person conventions, we are incredibly excited to be presenting our exhibitors and attendees with NECANN Online, the largest and most content-packed digital event ever in the cannabis and hemp space,” said Marc Shepard, the president of NECANN.
NECANN Online will feature live feeds from the 2020 New England Canna Community Awards Show and the NECANN Cannabis Competition Awards, according to a news release. Participants will receive a “virtual swag bag” and 2020 cannabis industry resource guide.
“NECANN Online will feature much more than the virtual booths and webinars most digital events are currently limited to. We will have virtual gift bags filled with exclusive deals, discounts, giveaways, and raffles; two live awards shows – the 2020 New England Cannabis Community Awards, and the NECANN Cannabis Cup Winners; exclusive products like The NECANN Cannabis Coloring Book, and a few surprise guest speakers,” Shepard said.
