NECANN Returns To Rhode Island Convention Center October 28 & 29

RHODE ISLAND: Following up on recent events in Boston, MA and Portland, ME (the two largest Cannabis Industry conventions ever on the east coast), NECANN will return to Providence for the third annual Rhode Island Cannabis Convention on October 28 & 29,  at the RI Convention Center.

As Rhode Island continues to edge towards legalizing recreational marijuana, the RI Cannabis Convention will explore how laws might be shaped, what business opportunities are available and most importantly, how Rhode islanders can ensure that local economies benefit from this multi-billion-dollar industry. The convention is expected to be the largest ever in Rhode Island, drawing more than 2,000 attendees, 90+ industry exhibitors and more than 70 local and national speakers.

The two-day convention will feature a programming track for Cannabis Business, Careers & Medicine, and a track for DIY Cannabis. Session topics include: Careers in Cannabis, Legal & Compliant Cannabiz, Micro-dosing & cooking with Cannabis, Medical Cannabis Uses and much more. Attendees will also be able to register for a six-hour business course offered through Clover Leaf University.

“The goal of this convention is to get everyone in Rhode Island who is in the cannabis industry, or would like to be, in one room for a weekend of networking, education, and relationship building,” said Marc Shepard, co-founder and president of NECANN. “The faster Rhode Island businesses get up and running, and the more local connections they make, the higher the % of cannabis revenue will stay in the state,”

Registration for the event can be purchased online at A limited amount of tickets will also be sold on-site on the days of the shows. The full programming schedule is available at
