Beverage Trade Network, the organizer of Cannabis Drinks Expo has postponed the events from July 30, 2020 in San Francisco and August 3, 2020 in Chicago to October 30, 2020 in San Francisco and November 3 in Chicago.

“Whilst following government advice and what’s happening in USA, we spent the last couple of weeks speaking with partners to assess the impact the outbreak would have on our event and what measures we could put in place in order to mitigate risks and deliver a safe, successful event for all,” Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network said.

We were super excited to host the show in July as the interest level shown from exhibitors and visitors so far was amazing. The show already has more than thousand people registered, and all the leading cannabis drinks brands were part of the exhibitor area.

The first Cannabis Drinks Expo was a huge success that gave the worldwide drinks industry, and North America in particular, the chance to come together and look at ways it can address legalized cannabis. Hosted by the Beverage Trade Network, this expo shined a spotlight on the skyrocketing legal cannabis market and provided insight into its future brimming with opportunity. A must-attend event for those curiously eying the future of the burgeoning U.S. cannabis industry, it also covered key issues surrounding the likelihood and timescale for legalization to other countries, as well as the impact of legalized cannabis on the traditional alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks markets.

We have now opened up the visitor registration and exhibitor registration.
