The Cannavist Partners With Cannabis Drinks Expo

Cannabis Drinks Expo announces partnership with The Cannavist.


Cannabis Drinks Expo is pleased to announce its partnership with The Cannavist on 11th October 2019.

With the legalization of recreational marijuana in a number of states in the United States - including California and Illinois, The Cannavist and Cannabis Drinks Expo will throw the spotlight on the ever-growing cannabis drinks industry.

CDE and The Cannavist will embark on a journey to help unlock new business opportunities in the fast-growing cannabis drinks industry.

After the success of the first Cannabis Drinks Expo held in July 2019 in San Francisco, Beverage Trade Network, organizers of the Cannabis Drinks Expo are bringing it back to San Francisco in 2020, and for the first time ever in Chicago.

The Cannavist will have their booth set up at the 2020 Cannabis Drinks Expo in both San Francisco and Chicago - where exhibitors and visitors can meet The Cannavist team and grab a copy of their publication.

About The Cannavist

The Cannavist is the UK’s first dedicated lifestyle CBD publication.

Formerly Vapouround CBD, this is the latest publication from Vapouround Magazine, the leading publisher in the global vape trade.  Vapouround Magazine began as a business-to-business publication in 2015. Now in its fourth year, the Vapouround name has evolved to become the global leader in publishing in the e-cigarette industry worldwide with a UK and Ireland flagship publication plus Spanish publications and bespoke show guides.

In 2018, the core Vapouround team recognized the interest and rise of CBD within the UK vape industry, and as such developed a CBD-based publication by January 2019.

The Cannavist delivers raw real-life stories, the cannabis industry and community news, event coverage, media partnerships, and product reviews from across the CBD spectrum to a wide range of distribution events. The Cannavist also focuses on current affairs and issues such as “World Mental Health Day”, “National Fitness Day”, “Backcare Awareness Week”, and other events and issues where CBD can be of help.

The Cannavist offers a print publication that you can subscribe to. They also have a leading online blog on everything CBD.

What is The Cannabis Drinks Expo?

Cannabis drinks industry leaders are planning to meet in San Francisco, California, and Chicago, Illinois in the summer of 2020 at the Cannabis Drinks Expo. The event, which is being organized by Beverage Trade Network, will mark the biggest global gathering of the cannabis drinks industry and is expected to draw some of the biggest names from within the industry.

With the cannabis drinks industry currently segmented along with a state-by-state basis, the Cannabis Drinks Expo will be an attempt to widen the perspective of market participants on the national dimensions of the industry. Regulatory and legal changes at the state level are now showing the potential to be expanded to a truly national level, and that has raised the interest level of all participants within the global drinks industry.

In addition to a trade show floor showcasing the latest products and services, the expo will feature a one-day business conference. Speakers from the cannabis drinks industry will discuss a range of important topics, including:

  • What innovations are coming to market soon in the cannabis drinks industry

  • Insights and observations about the current legal and regulatory environment

  • New business models for the cannabis drinks industry

  • New routes to market and distribution channels for the cannabis drinks industry
