  • Important Tips:
    • Submissions will not be accepted without a bio and headshot (other required fields are noted on the application below), so make sure you have everything together before filling out the form
    • Remember the no-pitch policy – your session description should communicate what your presentation will contribute to the convention and what attendees will learn from you
    • All of our trade shows, conventions and expos are focused on the cannabis markets they are held in. Any content for the 2022 CT Cannabis Convention should at least acknowledge the current Connecticut state laws and regulations related to the topic
