"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."

What makes this expo different is the people that come here. The New York people really make the show. They are serious, they are players, they are not shy, and they want to move fast. We’ve had three times more leads this show than last year. We were blown away.”

UrbanXtracts, NY 2022

We got to meet a lot of distributors, retail stores, licensed growers, so the leads have been quality… CWCBExpo is almost like a staple: You gotta be here!”

Custom Cones USA
Custom Cones, NY 2022

[CWCBExpo] has some really great connections in the local community in the New York area, so I noticed a lot of operators that we haven’t seen at other shows come out here and really represent the northeast.”

Blaze, NY 2022

We came here to break into the new grounds that is New York. We’re excited to meet new prospects… The show experience has been great, there’s been a constant flow of people.”

The Sales Joint
The Sales Joint team, NY 2022

We've been exhibiting for 3 to 4 years now, and it's always been a great show for us. We are Delaware based, so NJ and NY going legal is incredibly exciting to us. We got to talk to really interesting people doing great things in cannabis, and on top of that, we got leads of people that we didn't expect."

Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM)
Roz McCarthy, NY 2021

We had some really strong and intentional meetings, and people were just engaged. And it just felt like I was busy from the time we started to the time we ended, there was such great energy. I just am proud to be a part of [CWCBExpo]."

Precision Quality and Compliance
Precision Quality & Compliance, Jason Thomas

[CWCBExpo] has kept me busy. I got [hundreds of] leads … so I’ve been head down all summer trying to get through them. It was great to see a lot of the fresh faces in the market in New Jersey and New York as well."

What Cannabis World Congress has to offer, more than any other expo, is the expertise of the team that brings this together. They attract amazing speakers as well as great industry support for information on how to find your place in the cannabis industry.."

Etain Health

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.

Equitas Partners Fund

“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.”

Andi Goldman

Temeka Group

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.

Yadgar Financial Services

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.
