Smith Cove’s Pier 91 event center will host over three-hundred businesses gathered here in the Emerald City to connect with suppliers, colleagues and enthusiastic consumers. Cannacon presents a broad collection of Seminars featuring expert speakers on topics from growing to marketing.
The trade show attracts exhibitors from around the world; there will be symposia, budtender certification classes, networking events, live glassblowing, cooking shows, and more! But remember; this is a non-smoking and non-consuming event dedicated to business development, so there is no designated area to consume. Furthermore, Washington pot laws require cannabis products to be sold in licensed retail locations only, and giveaways are not permitted either, so the crowd at Cannacon stays pretty sober.
But Cannacon isn’t all business. Doors open at 9:45 a.m. with seminars starting at 10:00 and live press conferences scheduled for 4:20 each day on Facebook. Exhibitors and VIPs will get a chance to take a cannabis-infused tour of Seattle after-hours with one of the event’s sponsors, the Canna-bus.

Seminar topics include Horticulture, Business and Law, with renowned speakers addressing important issues within each discipline. There’s even a gathering of great minds scheduled just before the close of events Saturday with the publisher of Northwest Leaf and several others speaking about their experience as media in the cannabis-legal northwest.
