Shelton, CT –  October 12, 2021 – TMC and 420MSP today announced the launch of CannaTech Expo, being held February 8-11, 2022 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Don’t miss the world’s first CannaTech Expo that covers the entire cannabis technology spectrum, from IT infrastructure to technologies supporting growing, processing, manufacturing, and retail/dispensaries. Simply stated, this industry is moving too fast, making this a must attend event. Consider this the most important show of the year in one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world.

“We are ecstatic to host the world’s first CannaTech Expo,” noted Rich Tehrani CEO and Conference Chairman for TMC. “You will be immersed in cannabis technology over the four days that include standard IT Technology areas like infrastructure, and specialty areas like supporting growing, processing, manufacturing, and retail/dispensaries. If you are a cannabis business owner, you won’t want to miss out on an immediate opportunity to grow your business.”

“We are eager to debut CannaTech Expo at the 2022 #TECHSUPERSHOW in Fort Lauderdale,” explained Harry Brelsford, 420MSP Founder. “As an attendee, you will learn the unique cannatech workloads that make this a unique vertical, such as security (both cyber and physical), compliance, traceability and unique storage requirements. Come and be exposed to the entire cannabis technology supply chain from seed to sale. Finally, this show is perfect for Managed Services Providers (MSPs), IT Pros, technology entpreneurs and cannabis business owners.”

The United States legal cannabis market is astoundingly large and rapidly growing (18+ states, two territories and Washington DC). When you add medical use, the market exceeds 37+ states, a clear plurality of technology profit opportunities. The legal market achieved $17.5 billion as of 2020 (the last year measured). As of May 2021, states reported a combined total of $7.9 billion in tax revenue from legal, adult-use marijuana sales. In addition to revenue generated for statewide budgets, cities and towns have also generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in new revenue from local adult-use cannabis taxes. The overall revenue for the legal cannabis market is forecast to be $43 billion by 2025. That is a mere 36 months after CannaTech Expo!

The Conference Program includes sessions covering all business and technology aspects of the emerging cannabis market:
