WIRE: Marijuana Venture to host retail and dispensary expo in Oregon

Washington — Marijuana Venture, the leading national business publication for the legal cannabis industry, will be producing a business-only national trade show called “The RAD Expo.” The show will be 100% focused on marijuana retail and dispensary business. Exhibitors will be companies and individuals who supply goods and services to existing and future retailers in the legal marijuana space.

The RAD Expo will be held at the Oregon Convention Center on Jan. 17-18. All future owners, current owners, buyers and employees of marijuana retail stores and dispensaries will be admitted free of charge if they register in advance or pay $25 on the day of the show. The general public will not be allowed admittance.

Marijuana Venture Publisher Greg James: “We looked around and saw that the retail side of the business was not being well addressed. 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.”
