Hear What They're Saying:
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.
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.
The Sales Joint
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.
Yadgar Financial Services
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.
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.
Coral Cove Wellness
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].
Minorities for Medical Marijuana
“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
“They do it the right way. They take care of us and they present a good platform for us to give our message.”
