Details on the upcoming expo/Lemonhaze 2018
Hello budtenders and all of the wonderful personnel of retail 502. We're so excited to see you at our upcoming event. Since there's a lot of information on our site, plus more being added every day, we want to take a few minutes to explain how the event is going to work as well as the motivation/inspiration for the expo.
In the past, we've thrown budtender parties that were in the evening. The night time is the right time. The parties began in our downtown Seattle office and have since expanded to other venues as we ran out of space.
Here at Lemonhaze HQ, we're constantly looking to raise the bar and so earlier this year we surveyed our incredible budtenders, with the goal of learning how we can improve our events. More than 400 budtenders participated in the survey and the feedback for future events was super clear:
1) EDUCATION - an overwhelming majority expressed interest in furthering their cannabis education/careers.
2) MORE VENDORS - lots of interest in meeting more vendors
3) Entertainment/Music etc - additional activities to help socialize
Guess what we did with the survey results? We listened! Lemonhaze 2018 is our answer to the survey requests. Rather than limiting ourselves to *just* a party, we expanded on the desire for education/vendors/entertainment and created a two-day event just for you.
You can view the full schedule here, which includes plenty of time to socialize and meet the brands, industry panels + live entertainment + a budtender party! Since y'all work in retail and retail is non-stop, we deliberately craftedTWO-DAY shindig to accommodate scheduling. We know that not everyone will be able to attend the full two-day expo. So we did our best to pack in as much fun in this 48-hour window.
Please note that you do NOT need to attend the entire expo. Some of you may only be able to come for the day portion, while others may only be able to attend the evening festivities/shows. That's the point! Come one, come all and enjoy. Please remember to RSVP and make sure to spend quality time meeting the awesome vendors who made this event possible.
Finally, we will be rolling out +1 invites for a portion of the event. Please keep an eye out on the blog/email for more details.
