Reinventing NCIA’s 2020 Events

Reinventing NCIA’s 2020 Events


Based on the ongoing uncertainty around phased openings of specific states and to ensure the most successful – and healthy – event for all exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, speakers, and partners, we have decided to move the remainder of our 2020 events to next year.

NCIA’s Midwest Cannabis Business Conference, originally scheduled for August 26-27, 2020 in Detroit, will now take place August 25-26, 2021. Our 7th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo, which would have been held September 29 – October 1, 2020 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, will now occur August 3-5, 2021 at the same location.

NCIA’s 10th Annual Cannabis Industry Lobby Days, set to take place in Washington, D.C., September 15-17, 2020 will now take place May 25-27, 2021.

While we are disappointed that we will not be hosting in-person events for the rest of the year, our first and foremost priority is the health and safety of our community. We will continue to deliver quality content, online networking, and serve our members to help them be as successful as possible in this ever-changing environment while we press on with our cannabis policy reform efforts in Congress.

This unexpected disruption to our 2020 events program has a serious financial impact on NCIA’s operations. However, as the industry’s leading voice in Washington, D.C. our government relations team continues to work around the clock to advance the industry’s interests. If you support the important work of ending federal marijuana prohibition and opening opportunities for the legal industry, please consider making a donation to NCIA during this difficult time.

In lieu of the in-person events this year, we will hold a virtual event showcasing our class-leading educational programming and continued focus on advocacy and community in serving the industry. This experience is scheduled for October 21-22, 2020. Details will be available soon.
