Banner of The Mushroom Summit

The Mushroom Summit 2023 will bring together industry veterans, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists and the curious to share knowledge, best practices and a common vision to support the strong, sustainable and responsible growth of this emerging sector. Covering the entire product lifecycle, from cultivation to supply chain, marketing to compliance, and everything in between, The Mushroom Summit will be the one place for the industry to gather, connect and work collaboratively towards a common, successful purpose.

Co-located with Psychedelic Science 2023, the largest psychedelic gathering in history, The Mushroom Summit will take place during the workshop days of Psychedelic Science so you can make plans to join us for a full week at two events that will provide you with the knowledge and community building opportunities you need to advance both your professional and personal goals.

What The Market Is Saying

As the pandemic continues to recede into the history books, one of the largest impacts observed so far has been a shift in consumer behavior towards greater health consciousness, with many turning to the ancient benefits of functional mushrooms. What originated in China and East Asia thousands of years ago, is slowly entering the food & beverage, personal care and cosmetic industries here in North America and generating expectations of a $20 billion market cap by 2030. The demand for functional mushrooms as not only supplements but as a key ingredient in anti-aging, cognition, brain health, energy, immunity, endurance, clarity and general well-being products has created a tremendous opportunity for this once quiet sector.

“The global Functional Mushroom market size was valued at USD 31809.22 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.22% during the forecast period, reaching USD 51108.57 million by 2027.” – MarketWatch November 2022
“The major factor driving the growth of the global functional mushroom market is shifting preference towards functional foods, positive outlook towards organic personal care, improvement in the dietary supplements industry, increasing acceptability of mushroom for medicinal properties, and the emerging role of mushrooms in the food industry ” – Data Bridge Market Research, October 2022
