2021 was a big year for the psychedelic medicine industry. After spending most of its formative years in the digital seclusion of Covid-19, the entire psychedelics industry gathered in Miami for the first edition of Wonderland. Participants were overjoyed to finally see their sector begin to mature, to have the chance to shake hands, to meet colleagues and collaborators for the first time.
Wonderland 2021 successfully established the event as the go-to industry gathering. Yet with an industry experiencing exponential growth, Wonderland had to evolve. So Microdose has taken the 2022 event to the next level…
1. The biggest event in the psychedelic medicine industry
We all know that size doesn’t matter, but this is one exception to the rule. Every industry needs its go-to event, a place where the entire sector can gather to share and exchange and innovate. Taking place at the impressive Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami, Wonderland has expanded to 3 days, with over 200 speakers presenting on 2 stages. There’ll be thousands of people in attendance, top researchers and scientists, art, music, VR, tech, a mushroom marketplace, and more….
2. Location, Location, Location
We just mentioned the Mana Wynwood in Miami. It’s pretty amazing. This versatile venue hosts everything from conferences to electronic music festivals, right in the heart of ultra-hip Wynwood. With massive rooms able to hold several stages and space for a variety of exhibitors and presentations, Wonderland’s new home at the Mana Wynwood will help bring the entire industry together under one awesome roof.
3. Welcome to Miami, Bienvenidos a Miami
Miami, Wynwood, sun, and psychedelics. With winter creeping in, is there a place better than Miami for a “work” trip? (Trip? Pardon the pun). Miami is fast becoming one of the US’s cultural hubs, offering a welcoming atmosphere for entrepreneurs and innovators. Add to this its world-class tourist infrastructure and you’re in for a solid mix of business and pleasure.
4. The place for the business of psychedelics
“Your guide to the business of psychedelics” — Microdose’s unofficial tagline, one that will definitely come to life at Wonderland. This year’s event will host many of the industry’s top business professionals, from progressive venture capitalists, to Wall Street big shots, to startup entrepreneurs looking to make their mark in the space. With an entire day devoted to the business of psychedelics, Wonderland’s got all your business needs covered.
5. The top scientists and researchers
Wonderland has scheduled a full day to the science of psychedelics. The main stage will showcase top researchers and academics like Matthew Johnson and Robin Carhart-Harris (and more). The diverse line-up of engaging panels will host discussions on major studies, clinical trials, and developments in the field of psychedelics.
6. Psychedelic Culture
Wonderland 2022 will also have a full day devoted to the intersection of culture and psychedelics. The day’s schedule will include looks at sex & psychedelics, decriminilization, indigenous communities, veterans and PTSD, art, film, and more.
7. Ketamine Stage
On Saturday, Nov 5, Wonderland’s second stage will feature content focused on ketamine. Ketamine is currently the only legal psychedelic compound and so is in many ways blazing the trail for future psychedelic treatments. The Ketamine Stage will host researchers, clinicians and policy makers, presenting data from the latest trials, patient practices and industry trends.
8. Technology Stage
Want to get techy? Wonderland will have a full day devoted to tech with our Technology Stage. The tech stage will focus on the intersection of psychedelics, Web3, healthcare, blockchain, and other relevant tech sectors. Panels will include: Application of Blockchain in Healthcare; Using Machine Learning to Accelerate Drug Discovery in Mental Health; Using Machine Learning to Accelerate Drug Discovery in Mental Health — and more!
9. Mushrooms and Mycology
Like Mushrooms? Wonderland has got you covered. The second stage will host a full day of mushrooms and mycology, with insights into the fantastic fungi, including panels on mushroom species, microdosing, psilocybin-assisted therapy, functional mushrooms, and more. Oh ya, famed mycologist and mushroom superstar Paul Stamets will also be there.
10. Industry-leading exhibitors
Wonderland will present over 45 top-notch exhibitors. The largest and most diverse trade floor in the industry will showcase a range of companies and organizations. Treatment clinics, virtual reality, non-profits, law firms guiding clients through the legalities of psychedelics — these are just some of the dozens of industry players that will be at Wonderland 2022.
