Success in Tulsa
On April 3 & 4, Cannabis Industrial Marketplace held a cannabis B2B at Central Park Hall in Tulsa, Okla.
A massive success, vendors and attendees reaped benefits while establishing connections in Oklahoma’s rapidly growing cannabis space.
John Hartsell of DizPot attended his first CIMP B2B in Birch Run, Mich., and was more than pleased with the results from Tulsa.
“This was our second (Cannabis Industrial Marketplace) event. Two times in a row, the organization has really provided a positive environment for us,” Hartsell said. “Everybody we’ve talked to, or are really close to, are qualified buyers of what we sell, which is packaging specific to the cannabis industry.
And that’s really important to us, because we get a high-quality conversation with a lot of customers all in one place, and a new market (Oklahoma) for us. It really puts us on the map. We really appreciate the heck out of you guys.”
