NECANN’s Illinois Cannabis Convention
June 10 - June 11
Illinois Cannabis Convention – The 1st convention focused exclusively on the Illinois market! Since 2014, NECANN events have helped emerging cannabis markets grow and thrive. We consistently attract the largest number of local Hemp, MMJ, and Cannabis industry professionals in the market to our conventions. We are now showcasing the Illinois cannabis community to the world! This will be THE can’t-miss event for cannabis growers, consumers, and business cultivators across the region. With the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in Illinois, we’re looking forward to an amazing event with a high ROI for all! Chicago, IL; Jun 10-11, 2022
With the approval of the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act in 2019, Illinois became the first state in the U.S. to legalize recreational marijuana sales through legislation rather than voter initiatives. Illinois is estimated to produce between $2 and $4 billion in annual income from recreational sales if it reaches full maturity. Illinois will also expunge an estimated 700,000 marijuana-related police records and court convictions in a staged manner expected to be finished by 2025, making it the first state in the country to do so. Since legalization, Illinois has seen an average monthly revenue of over 100 million from recreational cannabis sales. Chicago hosts an impressive 44 cannabis dispensaries as of 2021. NECANN is amped to help bring some of the best in the industry together in one place in the windy city.
NECANN aims to provide a business and education hub for the New England Cannabis Industry. Events where MMJ patients, caregivers, Canna-businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and community partners can meet, network, introduce products and innovations, educate, and learn. By bringing all the players in the local industry together and connecting them with potential partners across North America, grow the critical mass of knowledge, passion, and professionalism that already exists here and provide a spark for explosive growth.
