Two weeks ago, the Surna team headed to Las Vegas to exhibit at the 6th annual Marijuana Business Daily Conference and Expo (MJ Biz Con). We were delighted to participate again this year as MJ Biz is always a significant show, offering new entrants and veterans of the industry alike an opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments.

As anyone who follows the cannabis industry knows, the last few years have brought significant change. This was evidenced by the huge turnout at MJ Biz Con this year. Easily the largest and most well-known show in the industry, MJ Biz saw over 18,000 attendees this year, up from nearly 11,000 in 2016. In fact, the show was forced to move from its home at the Rio Casino in 2016 to the Las Vegas Convention Center this year to accommodate all attendees and exhibitors.

Surna was one of over 700 exhibitors at this years’ show- another example of how the industry is exploding. We’ve been innovating in this industry for over a decade and are always excited to see new innovations and businesses being revealed at industry trade shows. 

We are enthusiastic to share our expertise with those who attend and exhibit at the show. We spoke with a lot of cultivators about efficient and controlled environments.  As more states come online and the price of cannabis falls, cultivators are turning their attention to lowering operating costs as a way to boost ROI. At Surna, we’ve been designing efficient systems since we opened our doors for business which made this a fantastic opportunity to speak about some of the ways hydronic cooling can lead to greater efficiencies. In addition, we talked about how cultivators can further reduce expenses by reclaiming condensate and becoming water neutral.

Another topic of discussion was how cultivators can ensure crops never fail testing. With the growth of the industry has also come stricter regulations around testing of product, creating a new hurdle for cultivators.  Surna provides completely sealed growing environments that reduce biosecurity risks and allow facilities to create a consistent, controlled environment. Many of the people we spoke with wanted to learn more about how they can create that ideal environment that reduces their need to use harmful chemicals which could cause them to fail testing. 

This show also marked the end of our old booth. We’ve been in the process of designing a new booth for 2018 which we will unveil at Lift Expo in Vancouver, BC in January. Be sure to come by and see us there at booth 209!
