"This is a show by the people, for the people."
Tim Seymour, Co-host, CNBC Fast Money
"Part of the reason I continue to come back is it's helpful to have everybody aware of who we are
and what we're trying to do, and you guys have been a very good platform for that."
Bruce Linton, Founder, former CEO and Chairman, Canopy Growth Corporation
It has been great to be back at the show.... it was great to see some of our patients in person, to tell people about the medical cannabis program and the Etain brand, and to have that face to face communication with potential patients and business partners, and to be out in the community.
“What this organization does so well is really bring diversity to the fore within the industry. To be a New Yorker and have a legal cannabis show in the heart of New York City makes me proud.”
Equitas Partners Fund
We came here to see what was happening in the Northeast because we are primarily California. We've had a lot of traffic come through from varying backgrounds... we've had a steady flow throughout the show, and we feel good about who we are meeting and the business we can create. Our company has built stores all across America, but now the opportunities are moving into the East Coast and licensing will be available... CWCBE was a great way to expand our market area.
CWCBE was over and above my expectations. The types of people who come are great. You have a diverse group of people who are waiting to get involved. There are also many curious people. At the end of the day, everyone here came because they see the possibilities the cannabis industry has to offer.

CWCBE gave us a great opportunity to educate attendees on the vape hardware space, on the safety aspect, and where the vape industry is going.
“They do it the right way. They take care of us and they present a good platform for us to give our message.”
