Why Cannabis Startups Need to Be at Cannabis Drinks Expo 2023

The Cannabis Drinks Expo is returning to Chicago and San Francisco in 2023. Cannabis startups are not going to want to miss out on this experience.

For the past two years, the Cannabis Drinks Expo has provided successful events for greeting connections in cannabis beverages. The 2023 event will continue to be a massive opportunity for anyone interested in the future directions of the United States cannabis drinks industry.

In 2022, our San Francisco and Chicago events were two of the biggest gatherings of cannabis drink professionals worldwide. The Cannabis Drinks Expo continues to bring together MSOs, growers, dispensaries, co-packers, flavor suppliers, packaging companies, cannabis drinks brands, and service providers across the United States.

The theme for this year’s expo continues with “Growing the Category.” The 2022 Cannabis Drinks Expo saw significant growth with all of the joined support between exhibitors and visitors who are passionate about seeing the cannabis drinks market evolve.

If you are a cannabis startup company, here’s why attending Cannabis Drinks Expo 2023 will help your beverage brand.


Get Your Cannabis Brand Recognized

In 2022, Cannabis Drinks Expo saw a strong wave of information, panels, connections, and innovations all day long. The San Francisco and Chicago expos begin with panel kickoffs, while an exhibit floor will be set up close by for easy back-and-forth access throughout the day.

Visitors, exhibitors, and conference speakers buzzed candidly amongst each other, and lunchtime was a highlight for making those follow-up connections within the industry. For both locations, visitors poured in through the doors until the end of the day’s events. Many attendees and exhibitors were excited to attend the after-party.

This is the perfect time to highlight your growing cannabis brand. This is the place to make that in-face impression and meet other industry supporters that can help create cannabis beverage magic.
