Calgary Cannabis and Hemp Expo

We can’t wait until next week! This time next Friday we’ll be touching down in Calgary in advance of the Cannabis and Hemp Expo, the first edition of Alberta’s biggest B2B and biggest B2C cannabis event.

The Cannabis and Hemp Expo runs Saturday, April 7, to Sunday, April 8 in the BMO Centre at Stampede Park, and we’re expecting it to be incredible!

The show includes 100+ exhibitors, with cannabis companies from all areas of the industry: from ACMPR licensed producers and health services, to regulatory compliance and medical cannabis education, covering every aspect including top products and accessories, new technology, everything you need for homegrowing, and more.

Canndora will be repping with a booth (stop by and say hi at #608!) We can’t wait to meet the Calgary Canndora Community! Get your tickets for the Expo here - they’re only $10 in advance if you purchase online; $15 at the door.

We also spotted this great ticket giveaway from our friends at Modern Leaf if you’re in the Calgary area and want to win, be sure to check out their Twitter feed.

Here’s why the Expo is a must-attend, and why we can’t wait:

Beautiful Booths

We’ve noticed booth design has been getting better with each cannabis event we attend! This reflects the overall shift towards a sleeker, more modern and professional aesthetic as the industry grows and matures. From simplistic and stylish to high-tech, we’re looking forward to see what exhibitors come up with this year.

As for our booth, it will be in typical Canndora styleelevated and elegant in black and gold. Don’t forget to stop by to see us in the space we’re sharing with our sister brand Cannabis Communications (#608 & #610)!

The Speakers

The speaker lineup is stacked! With topics ranging from cannabis 101, infused cooking and growing, to mapping and navigating industry changes, we know there will be a ton of really great discussions throughout. Here are some seminars we’re especially excited about:

Preston Drummond, Modern Leaf’s Founder & Executive Chairman, will be presenting proprietary cannabis research from Western Canadians in Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. We’re intrigued to learn what unique opportunities and challenges this recreational market will present.

PipeDreemz’s Georges Routhier will be discussing modern growing techniques for the medical and recreational market.

Our friends Katie Pringle and Brooke Wilkinson from Cannabis Communications will also be leading a discussion on Cannabis PR & Influencer Marketing Saturday at 5:00pm.

There are tons of other great speakers from cannabis companies of all shapes and sizescheck out the full list here!

VIP Party

This year will be the first-ever (invite only) VIP Mixer ahead of the Cannabis and Hemp Expo for Exhibitors and Sponsors. It’s hosted at Brewsters, a Calgary staple brewery and restaurant for over 25 years.

It’s set to be a great networking event - plus there’s free food and a free drink - we’re in!
