    I just got official word that the MJBizCon show is not going to take place in Las Vegas Dec 2-4, 2020 it will only be online.

    We truly value your support and appreciate your patience as we explored options to move forward with MJBizCon in Las Vegas this year. We’ve been monitoring the situation closely with our partners in Las Vegas, and unfortunately, we have now received official word from the Las Vegas Convention Center that they are no longer available as a forum for an event of our scale.


    As we now transition from an in-person to a digital environment, we remain committed to moving business forward in the cannabis industry, and to providing manufacturers, service providers and buyers with the best opportunity to connect, promote new products and discover new trends.


    As a contracted exhibitor for MJBizCon 2020, you have two options moving forward, outlined below.


    MJBizCon 2021 will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center October 20-22 and the floor plan from 2020 will transition over to that October event. As a contracted exhibitor for MJBizCon 2020, you have the option to roll your deposit, payment and space over to the 2021 event. You must have at least 50% of your total paid by November 30th in order to roll over. This will ensure your space stays in the same approximate location for 2021 and you will bypass the space selection process which will begin in January. You may also choose to apply those funds to any media MJBizDaily or Hemp Industry Daily media product(s) in 2021 as well. As an added benefit at no extra charge, you will also be included in the digital version of MJBizCon 2020 with a Strategic Showroom listing that includes:


    Company logo • Company description • Opportunity to post press releases • Showroom analytics • Links to company social media profiles• Four (4) MJBizCon Sponsor Digital Staff Passes • Access to the Meetings Scheduler to manage in-bound meeting requests• Access to online leads•


    BONUS - 5,000 Priority Points for future MJBizCon event space selection planning


    We have a variety of upgrades and additional sponsorships including the option to sponsor sessions, specific Passholder Day Forums and even an opportunity to pitch to investors.


    Should you wish to not roll over your deposit, payment and space to MJBizCon 2021 you can request your refund check in writing and that will be for all payments made, minus the deposit. Your deposit will be allocated toward your Strategic Showroom listing so you will have a presence in the digital version of MJBizCon 2020. We will then notify you before the end of the year as to when in January we will continue with space selection for the event in October 2021. If you are an exhibitor outside of the United States, refunds will be made via wire transfer.


    You must notify us of your selection by November 30, 2020. If we do not receive your selection by November 30, we will refund the amount paid via check (wire transfer for outside of the U.S.), minus your deposit.


    All refunds will be processed approximately 30 days of receiving your selection.


    We truly value your support and look forward to seeing you online this year and back in Las Vegas in 2021.

    Its frustrating because they kept acting like they were going to have the show just like Sema was and its like obviously you aren't going to have the show. They don't realize all the time and prep work that exhibitors have to invest into these shows. I don't know why they drag out these decisions.

    I'd prefer a live joint to an online meeting

    Looks like they've worked hard to hash out the details!
