The 5th annual Cannabis Expo (CanXpo) returns to East Hampton, NY on Saturday, August 20th, 2022, and features an impressive line-up of speakers focusing on the themes of social equity, legalization, banking, accounting, insurance, M&A, and investing.
Designed for investors and industry professionals, Cannabis Expo highlights how active and progressive the Northeast is becoming toward the cannabis industry. Chairwoman Tremaine S. Wright from the NYS OCB will be a keynote presenter. Topics will evolve from legalization through investment and current critical business growth issues.
The recreational use of cannabis was legalized by the New York legislature in March 2021. As the state gets ready for the implementation of commercial availability, many interested industry observers and investors will find this year’s Cannabis Expo of particular interest.

Total sales in 2021 reached approximately $25 Billion and are expected to hit ~$30 Billion this year.
