LeafLink Live in LA: The Recap
Earlier this month we hosted LeafLink Live in California for the first time. It was a night of relationship building, product testing, real-time ordering, and all around cannabis industry fun! More than 100 brands exhibited, attracting over 96 dispensaries from across the Golden State.
During the event, we also held a vote for the California Purchasing Manager of the Year. Throughout the night, attendees voted for their favorite from a group of eight finalists (chosen from over 300 nominations). It was a close race, but in the end, Max Herrera, Buying Manager at Atrium, won the title!
For us, LeafLink Live in Los Angeles was a huge success. How did the rest of the attendees feel? Here are some quotes from LeafLink community members:
“This was probably the best event I’ve been to in terms of new business and leads. All of the leads were very high quality, it was easy to identify the buyers.”
-Janelle, Sales Director at Cannadips + Ammo
“Some of my budtenders attended – it was cool to have them go around and see products and let me know what they like and what they think would sell at our shops…it was an awesome way to get feedback from them.”
-Agatha, Purchasing Manager at Project Cannabis
“We just reviewed all the products our employees connected with at the show and WOW. They said it was the best B2B event they’ve been to.”
-Brandon, Co-Founder of Golden Barn
“Size wasn’t too big, yet was big enough that each new conversation was natural, and got to high-five the people we knew beforehand.”
-Mike, Operating Partner, TriState Distribution
We’re already looking forward to more opportunities for face-time with our brands and retailers in the future! In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite photos from the event – check out the full photo album on our Facebook page.
