What is RAD?
The Retail and Dispensary (RAD) Expo is the only trade show 100% dedicated to cannabis retailers and dispensary owners. The event provides cannabis retailers with free access to all the resources a retailer needs to succeed in the fast-growing cannabis industry. The third Retail and Dispensary Expo will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon on October 23-24.
Marijuana Venture hosted the first RAD Expo in 2018 after publisher Greg James saw that cannabis retail was being largely ignored by other prominent industry trade shows.
“Many retail buyers don’t even attend the major industry trade shows because the exhibitors are mostly lighting, nutrient and extraction manufacturers,” James said. “And what’s worse is that most trade shows are charging qualified buyers a lot of money to get in the door. This is unheard of a non-cannabis shows like CES and E3.”
Exhibitors will include CBD and hemp companies, interior design, food and drink, security, merchandising, technology, displays, accounting, lighting and everything in between.
Retailers and dispensary owners from around the U.S. can find everything they need to operate in one organized, professional environment. RAD invites all cannabis retailers as well as health stores, pet stores, vape shops and other retailers looking to sell CBD and hemp products. EARLY REGISTRATION IS FREE
