NEW YORK — The USA CBD Expo is rebranding as the Alternative Products Expo to better reflect the variety of exhibitors on the trade show’s floor.

“Most trade shows tend to be industry-specific events, and so they only showcase specific types of products,” said New York-based ZJ Events, which puts on the series of trade shows. “Alternative Products Expo emerged as an upgrade of the nation’s largest CBD and hemp event, USA CBD Expo, to incorporate new audiences, new markets and new buyers.” CSP is a media partner in the Alternative Products Expo.

The Alternative Products Expo, or AltPro Expo, was created with the idea of bringing together an assortment of industries and the disruptive products and services within, under one roof. With this in mind, ZJ Events is adjusting the scope of the event to include, among others:

  • Hemp-derived products
  • Semi-synthetic extracts (Delta-8, etc.)
  • Functional beverages
  • Non-psychoactive mushrooms
  • Kratom and other botanicals
  • Nicotine alternatives
  • Nutraceuticals

“Our team has been working tirelessly to create a new kind of event where we could incorporate the wide plethora of products, services and brands that make up the alternative product’s industry,” said Jason Monti, director of sales at ZJ Events.

The next Alternative Products Expo will take place March 11-13 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Click here for more information.
