The Best 2023 Conferences for Sustainable Cannabis Companies

One of the best ways to connect with fellow professionals, current clients, and prospective customers in the sustainable cannabis industry is through attending conferences and trade shows. Whether you walk the floor, set up a booth, or host a secondary event, simply having a presence at these industry-wide events can boost your brand. 

As a sustainable packaging brand that designs and develops cannabis packaging for a circular economy using plant-based, reclaimed, and recycled materials, we at Sana Packaging greatly value the role of sustainability in the cannabis industry. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best conferences for sustainable cannabis companies to attend in 2023, broken down by geographic region. Maybe we’ll see you on the show floor or at a booth!

2023 Cannabis Packaging Conferences in the Northeast

The cannabis industry in the northeast is thriving. From New York and New Jersey’s brand-new cannabis markets to Massachusetts and Maine’s more established industries, there’s much to get excited about — and plenty of opportunity — at northeastern conferences. 


Focused exclusively on the New York cannabis market, NECANN expects this installment of their northeast-based conference series to sell out — so both attendees and exhibitors need to register early to take part in this exciting event. With nearly 20 expert presenters and dozens of exhibitors, this event is a can’t-miss for anyone interested in the New York hemp and cannabis industry. Sustainable cannabis companies, especially, need to have this event on their radar since New York has passed a mandate that all packaging must be made partially from recycled materials

Honorable Mentions: NECANN Atlantic City — September 8-9, 2023

Q4 2023 Sustainable Cannabis Conferences in the Midwest

Several midwestern states have growing cannabis industries. There are some inspiring conferences happening in America’s Heartland. 

Lucky Leaf Expo

Hosted in St. Louis, Missouri, this conference presents an incredible opportunity for sustainable hemp and cannabis companies. Missouri has recently passed laws legalizing cannabis on a broader scale, so it’s an excellent time for cannabusinesses to invest in the Midwest. At the conference, nearly 30 presenters will deliver talks, lessons, and live demonstrations on everything from cannabis cultivation to managing a cannabis business. Since more than 40 exhibitors and counting will join the lineup, this B2B show is a great way to connect with other professionals and explore new partnerships.
