New England’s largest cannabis convention arrives in Burlington for first time May 12-13, 2018 at the Hotel Burlington and Conference Center for two full days of exhibitions, educational seminars, and speakers related to medical marijuana, industrial hemp, CBD wellness products, and the ever-growing New England cannabis industry.

New England Cannabis Conventions and Heady Vermont, along with Vermont Cannabis Solutions and Greener Mountain Consulting, have teamed up to produce the first-ever cannabis convention in the state.

The event itself will take center stage in Burlington at the Hotel Burlington and Conference Center (formerly the Sheraton)  from May 12-13 and will include exhibitors and vendors from all over New England, including CBD products, medical marijuana dispensaries, patients, and caregivers, home cultivation suppliers, advocacy groups, and a wide range of additional ancillary businesses related to the cannabis plant and industry.

VTCANN Exhibitor Form FINAL

Do you have knowledge to share with the New England cannabis community? Here’s your opportunity to submit a proposal to present your tips, tricks and knowledge to fellow cannabis industry professionals, patients, investors and those just beginning their cannabis journey at the inaugural Vermont Cannabis and Hemp Convention, taking place at the Hotel Burlington and Conference Center May 12-13, 2018.

We are especially interested in seeing proposals that address:

  • Patient care innovations and developments in medical marijuana
  • Demos and lectures for home and commercial cultivators, processors and chefs
  • Business, compliance and legal topics for current and potential licensees
  • Emerging trends in product development, manufacturing, packaging and marketing
  • Investing and banking
  • Environmental and safety considerations

Online applications will be accepted through March 15, 2018. Selected speakers will include those who have spoken at cannabis events in the past and those who have not, and who come from a diverse range of geographic areas.  We are looking specifically for content relevant to the industry, consumers, and patients of the home state of each convention. Preference will be given to sessions that have not been presented in these markets before.

Solo presentations should last between 30-45 minutes (depending on the topic and structure of the session), followed by Q&A from the audience. We’re also include some panel style sessions and may ask that you alter your presentation to fit a different style. Speakers MUST abide by a “no pitching” policy. Presentations can not include information on speaker’s professional background, personal expertise and/or company history.

Selected speakers will be informed of their selection by March 30, 2018. Selected speakers must agree to follow specific guidelines on crafting their presentations and compiling PowerPoint presentations. NECANN reserves the right of final approval on all content for speakers, and may require revisions during the process.

To apply to be a speaker at the Vermont Cannabis and Hemp Convention, please fill out the form on the NECANN website:
