The Niagara Falls Review - - Local -

Is Ni­a­gara Falls ready for two cannabis con­ven­tions?

The in­au­gu­ral 420 Expo will be held at Sco­tia­bank Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on April 20 next year. Co-or­ga­nized by Ni­a­gara Falls cannabis ac­tivist Clarke Bit­ter, the show will fea­ture info sem­i­nars, ven­dors, guest speak­ers, prod­ucts and more.

“Much like we have done with wine, Ni­a­gara has an op­por­tu­nity to be the fo­cal point of cannabis in On­tario,” he says. “Ni­a­gara Falls, with our 15 mil­lion visi­tors per year, can ex­pect that num­ber to in­crease sig­nif­i­cantly with the le­gal­iza­tion of recre­ational cannabis.”

Canada will le­gal­ize cannabis for recre­ational use in pri­vate res­i­dences on Oct. 17.

In ad­di­tion to prod­ucts and ser­vices, Bit­ter says the expo will show­case “cannabis cul­ture” and its le­gal­ized role in mod­ern so­ci­ety, in­clud­ing info on the dif­fer­ent strains, laws sur­round­ing cannabis use and driv­ing, and sug­ges­tions on how to in­vest in cannabis stocks.

“Many peo­ple still have unan­swered ques­tions sur­round­ing it,” he says. “We in­tend to answer all your ques­tions at the NF420 Expo.”

Speak­ers and ex­hibitors will be an­nounced closer to the event, adds Bit­ter.

The event hap­pens seven months af­ter the sec­ond an­nual Grow Up Cannabis Con­fer­ence & Expo Sept. 7 and 8, also at Sco­tia­bank Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

Cana­dian en­tre­pre­neur Kevin O’Leary will be the open­ing key­note speaker.

“Grow Up is more of a trade show, where ours is a con­sumer show,” says Bit­ter.

Tick­ets go on sale Nov. 1 at www.ni­a­garafall­s420­expo.com.
