The USA CBD Expo is making its return to in-person events next month. The organization, which hosts the country’s largest CBD and hemp industry trade show, is kicking off its 2021 season at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center from June 11-13.
The USA CBD Expo Atlanta event is presented by Rocket Seeds, Vancoast Seeds and Crop King Seeds, and will feature more than 50 guest speakers hosting interactive panels on cannabis and hemp industry issues. The event also will feature a dedicated room for attendees looking to break into the industry, hosted by CareersCannabis.com and featuring sessions about cannabis industry careers, job search tips and more.
"The decision to postpone our 2020 events was not an easy one to make, but we understand the importance of being able to offer a safe experience to everyone involved," said Zach Bader, co-founder of USA CBD Expo. "Over the past year, our team has worked diligently to organize and deliver a premium trade show experience that serves as a launchpad for executives and industry hopefuls alike. We look forward to continuing our goal of pushing this industry forward through carefully curated seminars and brand activations."
Speakers will include industry veterans and newcomers, including former NFL All-Pro Kyle Turley who will discuss his experience with CBD after his football career and his hemp-derived supplement Neuro XPF. Also speaking will be Dr. Joe radio show host Dr. Joe Esposito, who will participate in a medical panel to discuss CBD in healthcare. The full speaker list can be found here.
USA CBD Expo said the event would be following strict COVID-19 precautions outlined by national health agencies, as well as city and venue protocols, with masks mandatory inside the venue and temperature checks administered at entry. The event also will provide garment-worn, color-coded stickers indicating an attendee’s willingness to socialize at the event.
Following the Atlanta Show, the USA CBD Expo will host an event in Medellin, Colombia Aug. 28-29, followed by a show in Chicago on Oct. 28-30. In 2022, the organization will kick off USA CBD Expo 2022 with an event in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., March 11-13.
