IBN, a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announced that it will expand its multi-year collaboration with NECANN to serve as an Official NewsWire for its upcoming conferences in 2023.

NECANN organizes conventions around the establishment and growth of cannabis markets and associated opportunities in carefully selected communities that have the potential to usher in the normalization of consumption and may roll out supportive policy frameworks. Specifically, NECANN’s events are targeted toward assisting communities to normalize cannabis within their jurisdictions.  

In its collaboration with NECANN, IBN will provide additional outreach via its syndication network for the following events:

  • New England Cannabis Convention: March 10 – 12, 2023 (Boston)
  • Vermont Cannabis Convention: May 6 – 7, 2023 (Burlington, Vt.)
  • Connecticut Cannabis and Hemp Convention: May 20 – 21, 2023 (Hartford, Conn.)
  • Illinois Cannabis Convention: June 2 – 3, 2023 (Chicago)
  • Maine Cannabis Convention: Aug. 12 – 13 (Augusta, Maine)
  • New Jersey Cannabis Convention: Sept. 8 – 9 (Atlantic City, N.J.)
  • New York Cannabis and Hemp Convention: Sept. 29 – 30, 2023 (Albany, N.Y.)

IBN, in conjunction with its network of 50+ investor-oriented brands, will leverage an extensive array of corporate-communications solutions to heighten visibility and drive recognition of conference participants among various audiences, including public officials, investors, media professionals, consumers and the general public.

To expand public outreach, IBN’s core strategies will build on wire-grade press releases for each event with article syndication across IBN’s 5,000+ strategic distribution partners. IBN will also publish content on multiple social media channels, as well as provide featured event placements on CannabisNewsWire.

“NECANN events are unique for their ability to identify communities that have a high probability of adopting and normalizing cannabis consumption culture,” said Marc Shepard, cofounder and president of NECANN. “We thrive on identifying inherent strengths in target communities and leveraging those attributes to accelerate adoption and push for the implementation of viable roadmaps. Attendees will share in the invaluable experience of the cultivation of cannabis markets and communities nationwide. IBN is a great partner to help make this a reality, and their widespread online presence has been a strategic advantage for our event series.”
