New Attractions at CHAMPS Trade Shows!

As CHAMPS Trade Shows celebrates its twentieth anniversary, it’s clear that the cannabis industry has evolved. Over 20 years, the number of exhibitors who attend CHAMPS Trade Shows has multiplied. Exhibitors now include businesses that serve every aspect of the cannabis marketplace and every whim of the consumer. Hemp products, vaporizers, cigarette papers, lighters, credit card companies, POS systems, insurance providers, clothing, incense, candles, jewelry, media outlets and more are all represented at CHAMPS.

CHAMPS has expanded its own reach within the industry. Earlier this year, the massive B2B trade show introduced a new division: Dispensary+

It goes without saying that a popular cannabis dispensary is a busy place. But the needs of a dispensary are very different from those of a smoke shop. Consumers visit a dispensary to fulfill their medical needs or purchase recreational cannabis. It’s not their intention to buy a high-end glass piece or browse racks of cannabis-themed clothing.

Customer service is of the utmost concern. Addressing the needs of medical patients requires expertise and compassion. And if a dispensary is located in a state where recreational cannabis has been legalized, a large population of cannabis consumers means that operational demands are even more challenging. Furthermore, the range of cannabis products expands daily, it seems—edibles, oils, tinctures, CBD products, genetics. It takes a virtual juggler to keep that many balls in the air!

LAS VEGAS, July 26, 2018… Las Vegas Market and  – on Tuesday, July 31,
2018, in Las Vegas – bringing together the collective resources of two major tradeshows and
thousands of resources. The fourth edition of TWO FOR TUESDAY provides buyers with free

industry with a market week filled with buying opportunities. In working together, ASD and Las
Vegas Market provide retailers a greater return on their shopping investment when coming to
Las Vegas. They will have access to thousands of gift and home vendors across both shows as
well as suppliers of fashion accessories, jewelry, and general merchandise, ultimately making
their buying trip much more successful.”

products across all price points. ASD features great impulse buys and high margin opportunities
in Fashion, Gifts, Novelties and more. Together, the two events present more than 4,800 unique
resources for buyers. Minimal overlap between ASD’s exhibitors and Las Vegas Market’s
permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits creates an unparalleled incremental buying
opportunity for global retailers across differentiated, but related, categories.
“Since we launched TWO FOR TUESDAY in 2015, it has been an added benefit at no
additional cost for Las Vegas Market buyers and suppliers,” said Dorothy Belshaw, President of
Gift Leasing & Chief Marketing Officer, International Market Centers. “This continuing
partnership with ASD is a win-win for our customers – buyers can access additional resources
