New England Cannabis Convention
This past weekend, The Higher Content was honored to assist our friends, BudSuds, in vending at the New England Cannabis Convention in Providence, Rhode Island. The Rhode Island Convention Center hosted the NECC for two days, allowing companies in the marijuana industry to expose their products and services to herbalist visitors.
The environment maintained a professional vibe as cannabis consumers visited each to stand to learn more about things that peaked their interests. Both Saturday and Sunday had a small turn out however, it seemed as if every visitor stopped by the BudSuds booth to learn more and purchase the industry's most talked about canna-soap. At the event, you could find a various amount of nearly 50 booths selling anything from growing materials, glass, cannabis consultation services and more.
Tickets to the NECC were $25, a rather affordable price but possibly too pricy for the event itself. While there were educational seminars during the two days, they took place sporadically throughout the weekend with no time schedule to plan your visit accordingly. Each vendor came with a substantial amount of products to sell but we did not see many visitors walking around with multiple shopping bags filled with purchased items. Many vendors had items for display but unfortunately went home with a lot of their inventory.
The NECC travels throughout the New England with stops in Portland, Maine and Boston, Massachusetts. New England Cannabis Conventions are one of the most popular marijuana expos in the northeast region. If you're on the east coast and are looking for a marijuana event to attend, look into visiting one of these events.
