Some global cannabis trade events, key for business marketing and growth, feel coronavirus sting

Some U.S. and international cannabis industry conferences and trade shows – important for marijuana and hemp businesses to market their products and cultivate relationships with vendors and buyers – are feeling the fallout from coronavirus fears.

So far, a small number of cannabis-related business events in this country and overseas have been canceled or postponed. Other cannabis event organizers are proceeding with their plans but monitoring the global outbreak of the coronavirus.

The decision to postpone or cancel events has upended the business and travel plans of scores of marijuana and hemp companies, forcing cannabis businesses to rethink their conference plans and – in at least one case – retrieve equipment that already had been shipped to a venue.

Natural Products Expo West, which included a number of CBD exhibitors, on Monday abruptly postponed its 2020 event in Anaheim, California, after a huge number of registered exhibitors and attendees announced plans to drop out because of coronavirus concerns. The event was scheduled to start Tuesday.
