The Lift Expo 2023, the premier Canadian cannabis trade show, unfolded at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from June 1st to 3rd, uniting the cannabis community from across Canada.

Navigating the Cannabis Landscape

The event’s floor plan was thoughtfully designed for easy navigation, allowing attendees to explore a diverse array of cannabis industry exhibitors. The Speakers Corner, split into East and West sections, served as the epicenter of knowledge exchange, hosting a range of enlightening panel discussions. Adding a touch of fun and relaxation to the bustling expo were the giant cannabis Muskoka chairs by Live the Chill Life Company, strategically placed in the heart of the conference centre, along with other designated chill-out spots.

Lifting the Industry to New Heights

The Lift Expo 2023 emerged as a significant platform for key players in the cannabis industry, including OCS, who had a booth tucked away to the side of the conference centre. The expo served as a catalyst for sharing insights, discussing trends, and envisioning the future of the cannabis industry. A key highlight was the focus on micro growers and their potential to penetrate a larger market, indicating a promising future for the cannabis industry.

Expo Standouts

Several brands made a splash at Lift Expo 2023. Bleuh Cannabis impressed with their vibrant gear and booth. Jublee Infused Fruit & Nut Bars from Quebec captivated attention with their passionate owner, Alexander, who honed his hash making skills in Morocco for six months before launching Jublee.

Saboten, Co, Ltd, Scissors, all the way from Japan, showcased a hands-free scissor, a potential game-changer for cannabis trimmers.
