Toronto Lift Cannabis Expo expected to attract thousands

Canada's largest cannabis expo hits Toronto May 26 - 28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The 2017 Lift Cannabis Expo provides a forum for professional, innovative and forward-thinking individuals to engage, understand, and perhaps even influence the future of Canadian cannabis. Running from Friday, May 26 to Sunday, May 28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the Lift Cannabis Expo is Canada’s leading cannabis industry conference, both a source and model for authoritative industry information.

Following the success of last year's Lift Cannabis Expo, the 2017 event will feature expanded services, including almost 100,000 sq ft to host 50 per cent more exhibitors. This means more education, more innovation and more opportunities for the thousands of consumers attending the expo.

The expo is also adding an extra day to this year’s offerings. Lift Industry Day provides focused space and opportunities for cannabis professionals to engage in meaningful conversations, relationships and deals. Lift founder Tyler Sookochoff says, “In some ways, last year’s Lift Expo was too successful, and exhibitors were at times overwhelmed by the foot traffic coming to their booth. We decided to add the Lift Industry Day because exhibitors demanded it. Both exhibitors and industry attendees wanted a day that would be a bit more conducive to meaningful conversation and provide them with more time to learn about all the new companies, products and services.”

Running alongside Lift Industry Day on Friday, May 26 is the Lift Cannabis Business Conference (LCBC). In a series of ticketed seminars, leading experts from across the cannabis industry will take on cannabis subject matter from a uniquely Canadian perspective.

Highlights of the 2017 Lift Cannabis Expo include:

  • Almost 200 leading cannabis companies exhibiting from across the globe
  • Two full days of speakers and panels
  • Live cannabis cooking demos
  • A vapor lounge for trying out the latest vaporizers
  • Cannabis career workshops
  • Home-growing demos and Q&As
  • Extraction demos
  • The Lift Industry Day and Lift Cannabis Business Conference (exclusive to cannabis industry representatives - learn more here.)

With talks and presentations from top industry leaders, an exhibitor hall filled with businesses showcasing industry-related products and services, the expo aims to provide an exciting environment for patients, consumers, industry members, entrepreneurs, local leaders, job seekers and curious individuals to learn about North America’s most promising industry.
