MJBizCon 2023 will be my 2nd MJBizCon and my something-like-my-50th cannabis event. I love them! I love the energy of being in-person. I love getting to meet other women in the cannabis industry and see what they’re building in this largely male industry.  I love seeing friends and business partners transform from Zoom squares to real life connections, like the folks from Respect My Region and Oak PR. I love seeing what’s new from an industry-building perspective and as a cannabis consumer (PuffCo, I will be finding time to drop by your booth!). In short, I love MJBizCon! And trust me, I have some hard-earned advice and wisdom that I’d love to share with you to get the highest grade MJBizCon experience possible. 

Schedule appointments with exhibitors in advance

Many exhibitors offer pre-scheduled appointments to qualified buyers. This will give you a chance to meet with key decision-makers and get your foot in the door. This proactive approach ensures that you make the most of your MJBizCon experience. Imagine it as having a backstage pass to the cannabis industry's biggest show. By scheduling appointments, you not only get to bypass the crowds and long lines but also secure quality face-time with industry leaders and innovators. It's like having a reservation at the hottest restaurant in town during a food festival – you skip the wait and dive straight into the delicious conversations and opportunities. So, why is it the smartest move? Because it's your express ticket to networking, learning, and elevating your cannabis game at MJBizCon 2023.

Plan your evenings with even more attention to detail

Business cards get exchanged on the conference floor, but everyone knows deals get done after hours. Most parties will be within a short stoned cab ride, but you still should plan as few venue changes as you can get away with, and consider mapping out a loop that leaves you back at your hotel. Realistically, you can hit the floor, 1-2 hotel meetings, 1 pre-party, 2-3 parties before you have to call it a night. Our friends at Distru have been collecting events and parties, if you’re looking to fill out your social card or are planning an event and have one to add.

Dress professionally but with a touch of personality

MJBizCon is a business event, so it's important to make a good impression. However, don't be afraid to show off your personal style. Consider incorporating cannabis-inspired elements into your attire to subtly signal your industry expertise. There are more than 2 football fields worth of exhibits so you might also want to opt for a business casual sneaker rather than heels or loafers.

Get your hands on some product!

Whether you’re testing out a new cultivar to consider carrying or taking some tech for a spin, the beauty of a conference is that we’re all in person to experience it! You’ve done your research, now it's time to see products in action. And in the world of cannabis that means taking smoking devices, strains, and form factors of cannabis delivery for a spin.  Here’s a few places you can try some new products:
