Over the weekend, suitcases were packed up again and feet were finally rested. The biggest cannabis industry trade show, MJBizCon 2022, has come to an end. Tens of thousands of cannabis professionals and enthusiasts have entered the Las Vegas Convention Center to network, do business and learn more about the industry. This year, the show floor was expanded to the event's largest showing yet: over 1400 exhibitors in 280,000+ square feet of exhibit space. According to the LVCVA, the trade show had a $46.4 million economic impact on the city of Las Vegas. So it's safe to say that many people enjoyed participating in this year's edition of the show, as well as the accompanying after-parties, of course.

While the last day of the show was a bit slower than the first two, the overall vibe on the expo floor was a happy one. Some exhibitors mentioned that they weren't sure what this year would look like, because of the current state of the industry. Yet these people were pleasantly surprised with the number of visitors stopping by their booth. At the same time, some people had to get used to the new categorized pavilions, as they mentioned a change in the flow of visitors stopping by and that there were some slower corners in the hall.

As mentioned in our previous updates, it is no secret that the current cannabis market is certainly full of challenges. Of course, these topics were heavily discussed on the show floor as well. Still, the crowded show gave exhibitors the indication that the interest in the industry is definitely still there. With the possibilities of further legalization happening and new markets opening, there is still an excitement for the future developments of the industry. Moreover, many exhibiting companies are focused on helping current growers find solutions to overcome the toughest challenges. Optimizing your yield and quality, reducing production costs, and differentiating yourself in the market, are more important than ever.
