What To Expect From The First Cannabis Industry Retail Trade Show

The RAD Expo, a national B2B trade show exclusively focused on the marijuana retail and dispensary business, is coming to the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on Jan. 17-18.

Marijuana Venture, the national cannabis business publication producing the event, is offering free tickets to all current and future owners, buyers and employees of marijuana retail stores and dispensaries, if they register in advance. Admittance for qualified attendees is $25 on the day of the show. The general public will not be allowed admittance.

Exhibitors are expected to include companies and individuals who supply goods and services to existing and future retailers in the legal marijuana space.

“We looked around and saw that the retail side of the business was not being well addressed,” said Marijuana Venture Publisher Greg James. “There are dozens of trade shows that focus on growing and cultivation, but no national trade shows for the people who actually sell marijuana.  We anticipate that exhibitors will include retail design firms, fixture manufacturers, lighting experts, packaging companies, growers and snack food companies. The list of possible vendors is endless in retail. In addition, we plan on allowing qualified buyers and retail employees free admittance if they pre-register. We’re following the same model as major traditional shows like CES and BookExpo in which buyers are always allowed in free. This promotes a lot of foot traffic and qualified buyers.”
