The New Era of Cannabis

Just because we're isolated, doesn't mean we aren't connected.

The cannabis industry has something inherent and enviable about it that other industries do not: community. The very nature of the plant and its survival through prohibition is rooted in community. Virtual reality can keep that connection alive.

Drawing from the cannabis industry’s best practitioners, leaders, and advocates, the Emerge Conference pairs talent with an immersive, avatar-based virtual ecosystem to keep the industry educated on the latest in cannabis discoveries, trends, innovations, and policies.


The New Way of Learning

Emerge features 6 tracks with over 35 sessions of live and pre-recorded content over two days. In true interactive fashion, the audience will ask questions and even vote on the best sessions.

Both entrepreneurial and expert-level content will cover areas of cultivation & manufacturing, retail & dispensaries, cannabis marketing & PR, advocacy & minorities in cannabis, investing in cannabis, and science & Technology.
