Amidst growing concerns of COVID-19’s ability to spread and quickly, Canada’s top cannabis events are being cancelled and postponed across the board. Non essential services, and no group events, means there’s really no other option.
The Calgary Cannabis Expo and the Edmonton Cannabis Expos are two of Alberta’s largest cannabis trade shows, attracting audiences in the thousands, featuring kiosks from Canada’s biggest cannabis cultivators, dispensaries, new cannabis technology and a variety of free seminars from cannabis’ top educators.
The Cannabis Expo is known for attracting industry professionals on a global scale with an upbeat atmosphere packed with entertainment, great food and endless opportunities for networking.
Noted on The Cannabis Expo website, The Cannabis Expo is an important step in showing the world the professionalism and maturity of the expanding industry. Join industry leaders from across Canada in an interactive forum educating on the latest technology, research and benefits of cannabis. Don’t miss comprehensive networking opportunities while exploring industry related exhibits as we build the foundation for the future of Cannabis in Canada.
We spoke with Canwest Productions team via email this week to learn more about the events new dates. Canwest Productions is the team that brings the Cannabis Expo to Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa each year, 2020 is the fourth annual Cannabis Expo. Canwest Productions is the independent team behind the scenes at the Wedding Fair, Womens Show, Boat and Fishing Show, Cannabis Expo, Tattoo and Arts festival and a number of Canada’s most successful large scale events.

To our friends, exhibitors and supporters of The Cannabis Expo & Industry Day Conference:
We are in uncharted territories, and these last few weeks have been extremely tumultuous and unprecedented. We have watched and are watching daily as our community takes extraordinary precautions doing their best to flatten the curve and looking after the safety of the community first and foremost.
This has impacted many of us severely, with temporary business and event closures, staff layoffs and personal distancing. Our livelihoods changing remarkably, and our businesses shaken. However, while times are unprecedented and circumstances are fluid, we also know this is temporary. We still need to plan for the future and look towards the next Calgary Cannabis Expo.
Our team is committed to providing a platform dedicated to strengthening the community, where shopping local can and will help support our customers as business owners to get through these uncertain times.
Currently, the Calgary Cannabis Expo has been rescheduled to October 24 & 25, 2020. The Industry Day Conference will be held on October 23, 2020.
We are grateful to see our community come together and grateful for your continued patience and support.
