Our team exhibited and attended the MJBizCon in Washington DC, which took place May 17-19 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. The convention garnered a massive amount of and attendees. With more than 630 exhibitors, there was something beneficial at the show for everyone who attended.
The attendees were a mixture of industry players seeing what’s new (many already owning businesses and labs) and investors that are curious about testing the market. Businesses from other industries are beginning to realize opportunities in the cannabis market. These are security companies, insurance providers, financing companies, debt collectors, packaging, printing, labeling, and many others. The industry has seen a big shift towards analytical chromatography equipment as well, with a large emphasis on the testing and safety of cannabis products being introduced to the market.
