All of us at Hall of Flowers would like to say thank you for making Hall of Flowers Palm Springs our best show yet! This past Hall of Flowers was our 6th show and we are so thankful to have been able to welcome even more new brands and buyers and really cultivate commerce between the two groups. More than past shows, this show was really about getting business done.
While the market is really tough for everyone lately, we had 1047 carefully vetted Buyers attend which is only 10 Buyers less than the December event. Some of the Buyers represent a single store and some of them represent multiple stores. We estimate combined, they represent over 1000 stores and delivery services. Common feedback from exhibitors is that given the market conditions, the retailers that were at the show were focused on conducting business. For example, Final Bell posted on their LinkedIn:
“We can certainly confirm that the industry is alive and well, and that buyers are excited. Surrounded by beautiful displays, compelling new products, fire branding, and bustling crowds, the Final Bell team had a fantastic time.
Judging by the frequent in-depth conversations we had, it’s clear that the audience for Hall of Flowers continues to be comprised of serious retailers and industry participants who seem to get better and more knowledgeable with each show.”
Despite the challenges of the cannabis market, we are proud to have improved the attendee experience by making some additional investments to make this show better than before. We added additional HVAC units to keep the building cool. We also added more food options, shade, misters and more indoor/outdoor seating areas. We look forward to hearing your feedback about this show in hopes to make the next one even better. Exhibitors and buyers received our surveys directly, but if there’s any feedback you’d like to share, please respond to this email.
Stay tuned for news about our Fall events including Santa Rosa and more!
