The nation’s largest CBD business conference, USA CBD Expo, has come to a close. The organizers were pleased with the turnout, as their flagship event drew upwards of 13,000 attendees and 305 exhibitors to the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The show succeeded in its goal, which was to “Create a global hub for information and interconnectivity in the CBD industry” stated Jason Monti, Partner at USA CBD Expo. “We wanted to create an all encompassing event that would benefit the CBD world, and we succeeded in doing exactly that,” he added.
Consumers were eager to learn more about the benefits of CBD, and they showed up in droves for USA CBD Expo’s inaugural show. Their curiosity about the CBD industry and its products was met with over 50+ speakers possessing vast knowledge, as well as exhibitors who were proud to share their experiences. There was also ample opportunity to sample the industry’s vast range of premier CBD products, from bath bombs to toothpicks, cosmetics, consumables, and even products for your pet. Rushing through the doors were almost 8,000 consumers, interested in what all the talk about CBD was about. Enjoying multiple speaker sessions and panels, hundreds of free samples, and the opportunity to ask questions, the public enjoyed all aspects of the show.
USA CBD Expo filled the Miami Beach Convention Center with over 5,000 Business Pass holders, out of the 13,000 total attendees. This, combined with buyers from the retail, manufacturing, farming, eCommerce, and distribution sector, every growing CBD company had a chance to secure an investment for their business, making the show extremely successful for their exhibitors.
The focus on B2B days and events turned out to be an incredible success as well. Friday evening began with the awards ceremony, followed by the business networking mixer after a B2B-exclusive day at the expo. Business owners, buyers, and exhibitors were pleasantly met with the buzzing atmosphere. “There was just so much excitement around it all. It’s great to see people come together and work towards a common goal, and creating something that we were truly proud of,” Monti continued. “We look forward to doing it again in a couple of months in Las Vegas.”
USA CBD Expo 2020 will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 13-15, 2020. “This [Miami] show has already proven it has what it takes to be a blast for attendees, and a powerful asset for the businesses that attend, so this next show is no roll of the dice,” Monti concluded.
