Why Should You Exhibit With Us At The CDE, 2023?
Become a leading supplier or a brand in the cannabis drinks category by getting involved. It all starts here.
Cannabis Drinks Expo's goal and theme for 2023 remains “Growing the Category”. With new states becomg legal, 2023 show will be focused to bring cannabis drinks professionals from all new legal states as well, with key focus on MSO’s, dispensaries, cannabis growers, packaging companies, co-packers, flavour suppliers, cannabis drinks brands, service providers that are in or looking to enter the Cannabis Beverage category.
OUR FOUR PILLARS OF THEME,
1. CREATING END CONSUMER PULL
One the main challenge our cannabis drinks category faces is to create end consumer demand. CDE will work with speakers, visitors, exhibitors and media to create more end consumer awareness on Cannabis Beverages. The ultimate demand in consumers will help dispensaries and retailers stock cannabis beverages which will help the entire supply chain.
2. EDUCATING CONSUMERS ON CANNABIS BEVERAGES
The second pillar that CDE will focus on will be inducing end consumers with more technical information and on why they should ‘try’ cannabis beverages. CDE will work with key influencers in the next 12 months to educate current cannabis consumers on cannabis beverages and also craft beer, wine and spirits drinkers on how cannabis beverages can also be part of their social consumption.
3. STATE BOTTLENECKS
One of the common feedback CDE got was to have other state co-packers and MSO’s at both the locations as they are key to unlocking some logistical and legal bottlenecks that we have in place in the US market. CDE will work on getting leading co-packers and MSO’s as exhibitors in 2023. This will help current and new brands expand their distribution.
4. NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL THEME
2023 will also have a focus on bringing new state and international participants and will have an national and international panel discussions on how brands can partner with US companies and how US companies can partner with foreign companies to grow. All of the above pillars will have one goal: Growing the Category.

EXHIBIT & GROW IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY,
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.
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.
