Las Vegas may boast a reputation as the entertainment capital of the world, with ambitions to also become the pro sports capital of the world (http://cnw.fm/dN6G3), but, increasingly, it’s also becoming a hub for large-scale business activity from its oasis in the Southwest’s desert. Casino giants Las Vegas Sands, MGM Resorts and Wynn Resorts serve as poster-perfect paragons of the glitzy metropolis’ prowess, having recently secured a spot on Fortune magazine’s list of the ‘World’s Most Admired Companies’ (http://cnw.fm/c5BWB).
Las Vegas is also making a name for itself as a hub for cannabis and hemp industry activity as a growing number of companies expand their operations from the world’s largest marketplace in California to canna-friendly Southern Nevada. The city’s Las Vegas Lights soccer team even became the first pro sports franchise to sign a marijuana business partnership (http://cnw.fm/nw0GY), and bedding manufacturer Therapedic has announced plans to roll out a “calming” cannabidiol (CBD)-infused mattress line in Las Vegas later this month (http://cnw.fm/yXG9U).
With a confluence of entertainment and business activity, the neon city also becomes a logical place to host the latest cannabis industry trade show event by powerhouse USA CBD Expo. USA CBD Expo has created its industry insider events for CBD enthusiasts across the country and in South American gateway city Medellin, Colombia. The Las Vegas trade show will glitter during three days of exhibition and state-of-the-business presentations at the city’s convention center, February 13-15, making it a potential Valentine’s Day getaway for some professionals as well.
Online ticketing (http://cnw.fm/0sjLQ) includes a variety of experiences, including varied culinary outings with Chef Matthew Stockard.
The explosive interest in CBD legalization has created a huge number of wellness product businesses, as well as ancillary entities, such as Lightning Labels’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-compliant custom CBD product labels, which will be one of more than 500 brands that will have a presence at the USA CBD Expo (http://cnw.fm/Xrlz6).
Speakers filling the slate at the three-day event will tackle industry concerns related to advertising, agriculture, branding, law and regulation, including recent legislative efforts to end some of the confusion surrounding state and federal legal disparities by allowing newly legal hemp products to be marketed as dietary supplements instead of highly regulated drugs (http://cnw.fm/S4ftm).
Media personnel and social media influencers will be in attendance to help provide exposure to the conference and the businesses promoting their brands.
“I think right now, the biggest misconception (about CBD) is that… people think it’s pot, marijuana,” USA CBD Expo founding partner Jason Monti said during an interview at the trade show’s first Miami event last year (http://cnw.fm/HzVy2). “Sometimes it’s being purported that it’s a cure-all for just about anything and everything. So I do think that there needs to be a little bit better science, I think that (there) needs to be a little bit more education. And that’s why we do a show like this.”
