There’s no doubt that North America’s cannabis industry is showing major signs of promising growth in 2024. As public support for cannabis legalization hit an all-time high in 2023, we’re starting to see more states than ever start to legalize both recreational and medical cannabis. While more legalization means more growth for the US cannabis industry, north of the border, the Canadian cannabis market is expected to see much of the same. According to projections by Statista, the Canadian cannabis market is set to reach a whopping $4.7 billion USD by the end of 2024. 


Although growth is undoubtedly great for any industry, it often comes with challenges and growing pains. The cannabis industry is unique in the way that business owners, investors, and decision-makers who are involved are all working towards a common goal – To de-stigmatize cannabis and continue to grow the industry. 


Considering the rapid growth of the cannabis industry, it’s no surprise that cannabis conferences and events have been popping up all across North America. Attending these events can be an excellent way to network with others within the industry, all while keeping up-to-date with emerging trends. If you’re looking for North American cannabis conferences and events for 2024, keep reading to explore what’s happening this year!
