With the passing of I-502 in 2013, Bob Smart saw opportunity – an opportunity to connect growers, producers and manufacturers of cannabis. This idea eventually bloomed into CannaCon, a cannabis convention designed to assist those in the marijuana business navigate the complicated laws practices and products that govern the industry.
While CannaCon has run in Seattle for the past several years, it has its roots in Tacoma. In August 2014, 6,000 attendees showed up for the first ever CannaCon held at the Tacoma Dome. Despite the show taking place the same time as the ever-popular Hempfest in Seattle, the turnout encouraged Smart to try again, this time bigger.
“The event went really well – [188 exhibitors] sold product, and a lot wanted to come back,” Smart said.
Since then, CannaCon has moved to Seattle with the next event taking on Feb. 18-20 at Pier 91, 2001 W. Garfield St.
