Education overview


Intimate Meetings

With an understanding that there are multiple tradeshows that have popped up serving the CBD category, our goal with Impact CBD is to focus less on a show floor marketplace and focus more on creating unique experiences that enable CBD suppliers to showcase the impact of their products, services and solutions.


To achieve this goal, we have optimized our agenda to feature specific hours that are solely focused on our “impact panel and education tracks” to run the first half of day one and day two.  This is complemented by our afternoon experience area where our attendees can interact with leading suppliers to define how their products and solutions could be applied to their patients, clients or business.

Panel Discussions

On day one, our main stage “Impact panel discussions” will feature state of the CBD market research, updates on federal and state level legal status, FDA regulatory compliance, labeling, insurance and more.  While day two will feature concurrent “impact education tracks” focused on patients for healthcare and medical professionals, clients for wellness and spa professionals and business for hospitality, retail and food service professionals.
