New Cannabis Industry Event Arrives at the District in 2022
November 24, 2021, London, Ontario: The Western Fair Association has partnered with CannabisWiki to organize a first-of-its-kind agricultural cannabis event in our region. CannabisWiki Conference & Expo is set to be hosted at the Western Fair District, Agriplex, June 15 & 16, 2022. Cannabis is changing Canada’s agriculture landscape, with revenues on par with the Canadian Dairy industry. CannabisWiki is proud to bring a cannabis show to Middlesex-London, Ontario – the agricultural hub for Southwestern Ontario. The twoday event will showcase cannabis industry innovations in the region, across the country and help to bring awareness about London and Middlesex as a world-leader in agriculture, agribusiness, and plant derived medicines. The goal of the show is to foster regional and national B2B networking opportunities and to bolster Middlesex-London’s reputation as a diversified agricultural hub.

Prospective vendors, panelists and exhibitors are encouraged to reach out for accommodations early to ensure ample time for cross-promotion ahead of the show. Unlike other shows focused on large urban areas, the goal of CannabisWiki Conference and Expo is to showcase the best that London has to offer and create accessible and affordable ticket rates to create an inclusive and worthwhile ROI for all attendees. If you are a licensed producer, retail store, and/or any business, big or small, that may be interested in entering the cannabis industry agricultural supply chain – make sure to save the date and visit https://expo.cannabis.wiki/ for booth registration information.
Vendors, exhibitors and panelists must be 19+ and show a valid proof of vaccination / ID. Also, please note, onsite cannabis consumption cannot be accommodated at Western Fair District. Along with its virtual event partner MienTzu, CannabisWiki Conference and Expo will be a “hybrid event” with expert speakers attending in-person and from around the world.
CannabisWiki Conference & Expo will provide opportunities to promote local cannabis businesses abroad. WFA and CannabisWiki both proudly support niche agricultural businesses that have the potential to benefit from a regional show. We look forward to promoting cannabis cultivation, extraction processing and any auxiliary businesses, as exhibitors and/or speakers for our upcoming show.
The Western Fair Association strives to be a leader in Canadian agricultural societies, supporting the agriculture community with programming and facilities that meet the business needs of the sector. Its latest strategic plan is focused on a re-commitment to agriculture initiatives and includes fostering relationship-building and promotion of local agri-food producers and production. WFA, Chief Executive – Reg Ash, states that “an event for our region, seemed a logical step in serving the strategy of diversifying our agricultural business base.” CannabisWiki Conference and Expo is an excellent opportunity to meet with the region’s most notable thought-leaders live and in person, and an excellent opportunity for fostering B2B networking between two otherwise “siloed” sectors that could benefit from “crossbreeding” agri-food, and cannabis.
CannabisWiki, a London-based cannabis media start-up, is pleased to partner with the Western Fair Association, an agricultural society with a 150-year legacy of agri-food education, supporting agriculture innovators, new agri-food strategies and next generation agricultural entrepreneurs. The new partnership will highlight the region’s rich cannabis/agri-food businesses, and aims to feature thought-leaders, equipment suppliers, production, and processing techniques; and most importantly, provide opportunity for networking between agricultural leaders, cannabis/hemp farmers/producers, and their respective subsidiary businesses. WFA and CannabisWiki are proud to support this new agri-business event, and hope that through collaboration they can achieve greater integration between Canadian agribusinesses and our world-leading cannabis industry. CannabisWiki is one of the leading websites for the cannabis consumer and industry visited by millions of visitors per month and a media partner for major cannabis events across North America.
