In a time when cannabis conventions have come under scrutiny for their inefficiency to stimulate the cannabis business market, a counter punch to that claim emerged over the weekend in Denver. The cannabis industry continued to build on the current momentum it’s having, delivering a weekend of networking, education and excitement for all who attended the Indo Expo event in Colorado.
Colorado business professionals for the cannabis industry were welcomed to the premier trade show of the summer. The Indo Expo Trade Show & Conference emphatically gathered Colorado’s top minds in the cannabis industry to demonstration the latest products and services to hit the market. The event also presented an opportunity for industry newcomers to advertise their unique product brands to thousands of businesses, consumers and investors.
The weekend opened with the Industrial Hemp 101 Symposium, a collective review that focused on business opportunities with industrial hemp. Industrial Hemp 101 covered modern growth practices for cultivators and included an in-depth presentation on profitable business practices using industrial Hemp. Presenters gave a detailed explanation on the production and profitability of hemp products such as CBD, THC-V and CBD-V, building materials, textiles, plastic and bio diesel.
The event was highlighted by a complete lineup of seminars and workshops that covered the latest advancements of the industry. Attendees were brought up-to-date on everything from business practices, marketing services, advancements in grow techniques, LED lighting workshops and cannabis stock trading tips. Industry POS and Traceability software leader BioTrackTHC™ was also on site, demonstrating their cutting edge system that’s revolutionizing the industry. “This was the second time BioTrackTHC™ has attended the event and a personal first for me. The event turnout was great, it was professional, and there were some great speakers! We generated many leads,” said Anthony Stevens, BioTrackTHC™ VP of Product Management.
The event was co-sponsored by the National Cannabis Chamber of Commerce. According to Michael Miller, President of the NCCC, “It was the most Comprehensive Expo and Conference in America this year. The expo was a sellout and the conference was one of the most heavily attended to date. The NCCC delivered the top speakers/educators that our industry has to offer.”
The cannabis industry is still young, in the primitive years of evolution and growth. Still, no emerging industry on the planet offers the promise and revenue potential like the cannabis industry. Only an outsider with little to no knowledge of the industry would claim that cannabis trade conventions are inept and inefficient based on attendance. All success stories have humble beginnings and the cannabis industry is no different. For being so young and working with such limited budgets, the industry has attracted brilliant minds from the science and business worlds who are formulating the future with ground breaking ideas such as new strains, compliance and traceability systems, banking systems, supply chain solutions and cultivation technology. As new markets emerge, new business opportunities, products and investors will drive the industry into the next generation. The cannabis businesses of tomorrow are already here, laying the foundation for a future that will demand the admiration of all critics.
