Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (“Leafbuyer” or “the Company”) (LBUY) announced today its partnership with Las Vegas-based trade show operation CBD.io. The partnership precedes Leafbuyer’s anticipated acquisition of CBD.io.
Leafbuyer and CBD.io are leveraging their expanding customer bases to nearly double the number of booths and attendance to more than 400 booths and 15,000 attendees. Since the LOI announcement on June 5, Leafbuyer secured 10 new contracts for the event. Currently, booth space is over 50% sold with an anticipated sell-out date in midsummer.
“We couldn’t pass on the opportunity to work together toward the common goal of providing more value for our customers, which in turn drives more revenue,” said Mark Breen, COO of Leafbuyer. “Our Leafbuyer product company clients find immense value in advertising packages that include full access to the consumer base of Leafbuyer plus inclusion in the CBD.io Trade Show for one easy package price. It’s one more way they’re able to interact with consumers and buyers through the Leafbuyer Network.”
CBD.io operates one of the largest and most visible expos in the CBD and vape industries. Last year, the expo hosted some of the largest names in the industry, including Blue Moon Hemp, Stanley Brothers, Diamond CBD, CBDistillery, and GRN. The expo also hosted representatives from Costco, Walmart, and GNC.
“Working with Leafbuyer helps to diversify our audiences and share CBD.io’s immense opportunity with a larger consumer market,” said Michael McNeely, CMO of CBD.io. “We were introduced to Leafbuyer and immediately teamed up to start including Leafbuyer clients in the CBD.io Trade Show. We’re bookending the event this year with the inaugural CBD Summit Series and bringing together the top minds from around the globe to facilitate industry topic discussions and to speak about the past, present, and future of CBD.”
This year’s CBD.io trade show will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center on November 22-23, 2019. Among others, retailers include Chronic Candy, Discover CBD, Experience CBD, Green Trees, Rocky Mountain Bob’s CBD Chewing Gum, and Steve’s Goods.
