Lift & Co. Expo makes its much anticipated return to the Toronto Metro Convention Centre on Thursday, November 18 - November 21, 2021.

This year the Lift & Co. Expo team is doing what it does best – and doing it even better: bringing the cannabis community together with a full house of business leaders, investors, researchers, regulators, professional services and industry suppliers, as well as medical and recreational consumers. But there’s even more for 2021: now there is an all-new Lift Psychedelics Business Summit, November 19.

This year’s expo days are all about learning, networking and recharging the community’s collective batteries after such a long hiatus.

This year not only will there be over 200 exhibitors sharing their knowledge and expertise, but there are also 150 speakers offering insights, experience, tip, traps and tactics, that will help delegates succeed as they manage and build their businesses.

Here are just a few samples of the tough industry challenges the Lift & Co. spotlight is pointing on this year, and who will be presenting:

  • Pioneer CEO’s Bruce Linton, Alison Gordon, John Fowler and John Prentice will explain the real deal about U.S. legalization and its impact on Canadian cannabis
  • Former Ontario health minister George Smitherman is moderating a Regulatory 360 panel assessing what regs build strong Canadian cannabis companies and which ones cut them down
  • Plus, presidents and CEOs from Nova Cannabis, WeedMD, dutchie, JMCC, Protonify, RoseLife Science, Cannaceutical Canada, Province Brands, Merrco Payments, and TAAL Distributed Information Technologies, just to name a few
  • And there is lots of smart science from Canopy Growth Corporation, Atlas Growers, Green Plant Nutrients, ASTM International, American Association for Laboratory Accreditation, and more

This can’t miss live cannabis and psychedelics event will be Canada's largest and most ambitious of 2021. While all required safety and sanitation protocols will be in place to safely welcome attendees, exhibitors, businesses, and presenters, there are also limited spaces for this comprehensive, immersive four-day event. So, tickets are expected to sell out.

Whether you are a burgeoning start-up, expanding your business, or simply a curious consumer, the show has something for everyone. 


​​Day one is dedicated to the Lift Cannabis Business Conference, November 18. It is an exclusive full-day conference held ahead of expo weekend that brings together Canada's top cannabis executives, innovators and regulators to share their perspectives and approaches to the industry's most pressing concerns. These masterclass panel discussions will focus on industry economics, marketing, retail, regulations, investing, and much more; making Lift & Co. Expo the perfect venue to seek new ideas, advice, guidance, inspiration, plus updates and forecasts on what's going on in the cannabis industry, right now. This is a fan-favourite conference that has provided attendees with unmatched access to ideas, insights, techniques, approaches and strategies that have shaped the cannabis sector, both in Canada and internationally.

On the Expo Industry Day, November 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., is when initiative meets opportunity. Here is where industry insiders meet for professional deep-dives, high-level panel presentations, and in-depth discussions that never fail to build partnerships and collaborations. The Industry Day is industry-only, planned for and programmed to connect established business leaders, new owners an innovators, production specialists, researchers, senior management and new hires alike.

This year debuts the all-new, all-day, in-depth Lift Psychedelic Business Summit, also on November 19 so psychedelics summit delegates can visit the Industry Day tradeshow exhibition.

Lift & Co. Expo needed to be a leader in this new industry. As psychedelics research and new therapies emerge, a psychedelics sector is growing, and Canada is an international leader – for now. That is why this new Canadian business-focused psychedelics summit is important, and why the main subjects of discussion, such as what is Canada’s place and potential in this new industry, what are the proven patient breakthroughs, who are the psychedelics trailblazers, researchers, business owners and investors, and what do they know and what can they share? These questions are critically important to establish a thriving Canadian psychedelics industry. So, whether you are a growing concern or just interested in what's happening in the psychedelics world now, this new learning summit is just for you.

All of these professional events culminate into the much-loved Consumer Days on November 20-21. On the expo weekend, consumers, patients, as well as industry professionals, experience together all of what Lift & Co. Expo has to offer, with the widest range of vendors and entertainment, this one-of-a-kind conference and tradeshow provides recreational and medical cannabis consumers and psychedelics patients an unparalleled opportunity to explore, learn, and interact with exhibitors from Canada and beyond.

The Consumer Days are also about learning too. Topical panels and speakers take over the main stage for lively sessions and conversations on topics ranging from ageing and beauty, growing at home, the best retail experiences, new product innovations and accessories, love and romance, CBD for your pets, and more. Here, cannabis enthusiasts can speak to and learn from reliable, welcoming sources, while cannabis brands and suppliers can discover developing consumer trends and the public's expectations for what they want next from cannabis and psychedelics products.


Lift & Co. Expo Toronto 2021 will continue its tradition to build up brands, networks, and Canadian companies. This expo has a proven track record as the premier cannabis and psychedelics business and consumer-focused tradeshow and conference series in Canada: with over 200 exceptional exhibitors, 150 presenters, unequalled learning and networking opportunities, and all fueled by engaging conversations, new collaborations and unexpected discoveries.

Tickets are on sale now in limited quantities, so don't miss out on what it offers attendees, revealing learning opportunities and an overall enjoyable experience of the highest class.
