The Return of In-Person Trade Shows?

I had the great honor of presenting in person at NoCo Hemp Expo last week in Denver, Colorado. After a year of virtual presenting, I was apprehensive about how returning to live presenting in the middle of the pandemic would be. I am glad to say it was ok, and so much fun!

I shared the stage with Bob Hoban and Tim Gordon, two industry legends. We talked about FDA regulations and so much more. It felt like three old friends chatting in a living room about important industry issues. It was casual and just perfect!

I was asked about how to plan for the future of the hemp industry.

I spoke about the importance of conducting safety studies which companies like Burdock Group and NutraSource can help with. We review this here. I also felt it appropriate to share a quote about resilience from my late father Arnold Waldstein. This is my company mantra but also applies to anyone who is struggling to build their career and company during this pandemic era.

The main stage was reminiscent of a large concert or Tony Robbins event, with our faces on screens over 30 feet tall. This allowed the presenters to be seen from the spaced-out tables in this huge building.
