Albany, NY – The inaugural New York Cannabis and Hemp Convention coming to Albany August 26-27 will serve as an essential hub for local businesses, investors, and entrepreneurs to meet, network and grow. With the New York cannabis industry projected to reach $3 billion by 2026, attendees can network with hundreds of local and national cannabis industry businesses, explore investment & career opportunities, connect with advocacy groups, see the latest developments in lighting, soil, and growing equipment, and purchase a wide variety of accessories. Every facet of the cannabis industry is represented at NECANN New York.

“With cultivation licenses and adult use cannabis retail outlets on the way, the number of new career and business opportunities in New York will absolutely explode in the next twelve months”, said Marc Shepard, co-founder and President of NECANN.  “With a full exhibit hall and two programming tracks dedicated to local opportunities running both days, this will be the first major cannabis industry event focusing exclusively on the New York market”.

Over 120 exhibitors and several thousand attendees are expected to attend the two-day NECANN New York convention, one of the largest and most influential events of its kind.  Programming highlights include:

“Our mission is to bring the local leaders and communities in so they can network, educate, and begin working together. “New York has made a commitment to establishing a vibrant cannabis industry, and part of our job at NECANN is to help entrepreneurs work together as a community and keep a majority of the capital circulating locally,” said Shepard. “If we are working together, serving each other, hiring locally and building a business infrastructure for cannabis, then it really can be a $2 billion industry right here in New York.”
