CBD Expo EAST broke records, welcoming over 4,000 visitors for the first time Florida visit. The crowd spread itself through the extensive schedule of over 40 education sessions featuring industry physicians, scientists and other speakers from around the world.
Totaling over 80 speakers participating in keynote presentations, panel discussions, interactive workshop, stage demonstrations and certification classes on a variety of topics relating CBD and its health benefits. The conference has seen a consistent increase of attendance numbers since it embarked on its tour with an opening stop in Anaheim, California, in September.
“It is incredible to see this event growing location over location,” MACE Media Group’s CEO, Celeste Miranda, said. “Not only have we expanded the event in terms of exhibit space, but we again reached a record high in the number of visitors who came to the event. This shows the ongoing importance of the business value that both buyers and suppliers in the global CBD industry find in this event.”
The event includes CBD Health & Wellness Magazine Awards, recognizing outstanding CBD Products. In the competition, a panel of industry experts in CBD products judged 40 finalists on their taste, originality, practicality, innovation, packaging, market potential and nutritional aspects.
The exhibitors were extremely pleased with the turnout. Gwen Garret, the Director of Marketing for CFH Ltd. said, “Thank you all so much for your hard work. It was very professional and so well organized. The show turned out beautifully and we are all very grateful! We appreciate all you have done to raise the caliber of the industry and elevate the conversation!”
CBD Coaching certifications were also given through the CBD Training Institute after more than 30 attendees completed the required hours of training and testing. “Our Dream Team of CBD Experts provided a deep domain of knowledge and the feedback from the coaches were excellent,” commented CBD Training Academy’s CEO, Rick Diamond.
