In 2016, Lift hosted two word-class cannabis trade shows, first in Toronto in May and then Vancouver in September. These shows were the largest and most successful cannabis events Canada had ever seen, and with your participation and help we set the bar worldwide for what a professional, innovative, and forward-thinking cannabis industry should look like.
Looking ahead, Canada’s federal government has pledged to introduce legislation to legalize cannabis for adult use in the spring of 2017. This is an unprecedented move never before undertaken by an industrialized nation, and it will no doubt place a global spotlight on Canada while opening up an inestimable amount of exciting opportunities for consumers and businesses alike.
That’s why we’re taking the Lift Cannabis Expo a step further in 2017. Toronto will once again be home to Canada’s biggest cannabis event in May, except it’s going to be even BIGGER. The show floor has increased from 60,000 sq ft to 90,000 sq ft.
As well, we’ll be extending the expo from two to three days to incorporate an industry-only day. And there will also be a full conference component featuring panels, seminars, and presentations covering a variety of topics for industry, healthcare professionals, consumers, and patients.
