108_Meet The Founder of The Flower Expo: Where Brands Meet Buyers

Episode Notes

Jason Bello is the founder and CEO of a relatively new B2B cannabis trade show called The Flower Expo. He says his show is for "brands to meet buyers," and similar to how food and wine shows operate where there is an emphasis on product sampling. Jason learned the trade show ropes by working at West Coast trade shows like Hall of Flowers and Green Street Festival. Jason launched The Flower Expo last year in Massachusetts and is back again on June 5-6th in rural Greenfield, Mass. The show is set in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, with food trucks and lots of product sampling. It will then move on to Lansing, Michigan, for an inaugural show in that state.
