If you are looking for an established event with plenty of exhibitors and opportunity for businesses, then the New England Cannabis Convention is the event for you.

Exhibitors came from around the country to set up shop at the convention, and many consumers came from around the country as well to take part in the newest trends and local growing cultures.
