Top 41 Tech Companies at MJBizCon 2021

mjbizcon guide banner

MJBizCon 2021 is a great place to review all (or most) the cannabis software and IT hardware out there, whether you’re a cannabis business that’s looking to see what products and features are available or someone in the cannabis tech space looking to keep up with the latest trends. With over 1,000 exhibitors, it might be tough to find what you’re looking for or deciding which companies to research and prepare for before the event.

MJBizCon has a great searchable directory, but personally we find the category “Software & Technology” to be a little vague. You might just be looking for a specific type of software. Also, it’s not easy to compare all the different options when you can only look up each company individually. Being in the cannabis tech space ourselves, we though we’d try to be helpful and create a more detailed directory of all the cannabis software and IT hardware companies exhibiting at the show.

Who Isn’t Exhibiting This Year?

The dispensary POS companies Flowhub and Meadow, the ERP Flourish, the grow software Trym, and the compliance software Simplifya are some of the notable names that don’t show up in the exhibitors’ list this year. Be sure to check them out if you’re evaluating your software stack regardless.

In addition, if you weren’t aware, in recent years the cannabis POSes Green Bits and Leaf Logix were purchased by Dutchie, and the cannabis ERPs Viridian Sciences and Trellis were acquired by Akerna (365 Cannabis too, though they appear to be exhibiting separately from Akerna, at least for this MJBizCon). No idea if those acquired products will be featured at those companies’ booths; it’ll be interesting to see!

What Isn’t Included in This Guide?

We don’t want this guide to be too long, so we only focused on general, broad-based cannabis business software and hardware. Some of the types of products we didn’t include:

  • Payment processing, payroll processing, and cash management solutions
  • Product verification software like CannVerify
  • Grow solutions that are closer to industrial machinery than IT solutions
  • Security solutions including surveillance systems and monitoring services (deep enough topic to be its own blog post)
