The New England Cannabis Convention in Boston has been postponed because of coronavirus concerns, event organizers announced on Tuesday.
It was scheduled for later this month at the Hynes Convention Center.
“Due to the increasing concern and public health crisis due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the NECANN Boston convention, scheduled for March 20-22, is being postponed,” organizers wrote on the event’s website. “We are working with our venue partners and city officials to select a new date in 2020 and will update everyone as soon as we have specific information and details to share.
“All vendor registrations and pre-sale tickets will be honored for the new date,” organizers wrote. “Please be advised that this postponement will impact the convention, the NE Canna Community awards show, and the NECANN Competition awards. We appreciate everyone’s patience and support during this incredibly difficult time and this decision, and look forward to working with everyone to make this year’s event as successful as it has been for the last five years.”
