Welcome to the Grower’s Circle – Canada remains the world leader in regulated cannabis cultivation and we are proud to share the news of our homegrown expertise with the world. To keep cannabis cultivation on the edge of innovation, it’s important to generate an exchange of ideas and insight between growers. To that end, Grow Up is introducing The Grower’s Circle – a one day series of technical sessions that allow growers (both experienced and novice) to get more out their cultivation practices, courtesy of the shared insights of others.

Technical Workshop Description

The sea of green (SOG), the screen of green (ScrOG), monster cropping, lollipopping. It often seems like, overnight, cannabis cultivation has developed an entire language of its own. Well, here’s your immersion course, a comparative conversation that’ll cover all of the above, and more. Meanwhile, despite its general durability, the very diversity of current cannabis cultivation has seen new permutations of exposure to pathogens, pests and harmful fungi. Those brown tips on your leaves, sudden outbreaks of yellow or white patches or holes, could jeopardize your entire yield. We’ll trade experiences in what afflicts our crops, the most effective responses, and prophylactic measures to avoid exposure in the first place.

NIAGARA FALLS, ON JUNE 09, 2020. North America’s leading cannabis cultivation and extraction conference, tradeshow and awards show, Grow Up, has made the difficult decision to reschedule the 4th annual show in Niagara Falls, ON which was slated to take place September 1-3, 2020.

This decision has been made from monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation both in Ontario and around the world, along with the advice and recommendations from Grow Up’s advisory board.

“The health and safety of our attendees, speakers and exhibitors are our main priority,” says Randy Rowe, President of Grow Up. “Even though our event is three months away, we feel that we cannot responsibly produce a show that brings together 4,500 delegates and over 200 exhibitors from around the world”.

Grow Up Conference and Expo will be bringing its conference, tradeshow and awards to Victoria BC next summer. This west coast show featuring the Grow Up Extraction Zone, hosted by Extraction Magazine, will bring over one hundred high-level industry speakers, exhibitors and thousands of delegates together on Vancouver Island. Details to follow.

The premier Grow Up Awards Gala will still take place, but will be hosted in Victoria BC in the Summer of 2021. “The Cannabis industry has made tremendous growth over the last year and we are determined to recognize the excellence and innovation with our 2nd annual awards show”, says Neill Dixon, Co-Founder of Grow Up. “Bringing the Grow Up Awards Gala to Victoria BC will make it easier for our west coast growers and suppliers to be a part of the celebration”.

The 2021 Niagara Falls version of Grow Up will take place September 1-3, 2021 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, Niagara Falls, ON.

We appreciate your patience and thank you for your support and stay safe.
