After an incredibly busy and crowded first day, the MJBizCon 2019 continued with an equally crowded second day.

Unlike yesterday, the second day of the MJBizCon started a bit more slowly. But it did not take much time before thousands of attendees stepped into the Las Vegas Convention Center. Also today, exhibitors were very happy with the quantity and the quality of people visiting their booths.

Even though the organization improved a lot edition after edition, a few issues persisted nonetheless. Some exhibitors argued that booths were not particularly well organized. Indeed, these were not positioned with a very well criterion, as consumer-oriented companies, greenhouse suppliers, fertilizer and lighting companies, and extraction companies were spread across the venue, making it a bit difficult for attendees to have a full understanding of the full array of technologies available for each of the aforesaid categories.

However, all the exhibitors agreed on the fact that the industry has matured a lot, compared to last year's edition. Visitors were more knowledgeable, especially with regards to the horticultural aspect of the cannabis industry. "Way less party-goers", some said, thus confirming that this subset of horticulture is slowly but steadily coming to maturity.

Friday is the last day of the convention, and all the booths will be disassembled in the evening, marking the end of the biggest exhibition completely dedicated to this burgeoning industry.
