MJBizCon speaker sessions will also aim to tackle some of the new challenges that have come up for the industry since the pandemic began. Other innovations on the floor in 2021 include a Hall of Flowers partnership. “We’re looking to hook up with one of the other leading event brands in the industry, to use both our strengths,” says Walsh. “Really connecting the brands with retailers in a new way. You can get lost in the sea of people at MJBizCon. We wanted to carve out a space.”

Founded in 2011, the conference has been growing over the last decade to have been officially gifted the title of “MJBizCon week” from the city of Las Vegas. Attendees can expect to see 1,000 exhibitors across over 250,000 square feet for this year’s show. MJBizCon is known for its technology, industry-focused showroom floor. It has been lovingly called the ‘Comic Con of weed’ because of its sheer scope, and also because of its draw to entrepreneurs and celebrities alike. Past year’s attendees included Kevin O’Leary, Kelsey Grammer, Kevin Smith, Gene Simmons, and more.

“From my point of view, most of us in the craft beer space are entrepreneurs at heart,” says Katechis. “As I began evaluating opportunities to join the cannabis industry, I found a lot of similarities between the cannabis and craft beer industry’s entrepreneurial spirit. In craft beer, many of us started as home brewers and in the cannabis industry, the same can often be said about home growers. What attracted me to the cannabis industry, especially the team at Veritas Fine Cannabis, is that shared entrepreneurial spirit. As budding entrepreneurs, we are always looking for opportunities to express ourselves in the name of having fun and making the world a better place, and the cannabis industry provides the means to do so.”

The redemption song of MJBiz’s flagship event expects somewhere in between 20,000 and 30,000 attendees, with masks and social distancing in place. Before the pandemic in 2019, it reached nearly 35,000 attendees. Its CEO Chris Walsh sees a similar pace this year. “It really legitimizes the industry for people,” says Walsh. “A couple years ago, founders who came as attendees are now running bigger, more established companies.”
