What are the off limits A No-Go

Hawaii Cannabis Expo enforces a very strict “no pitching” policy.
This includes introductions and company logos in the presentation.
Speakers cannot expound on their professional background, personal expertise, and/or company history.
Be prepared to get to the point quickly and spend the session educating the audience.
NO SHOW – will may get blacklisted to speak in our EXPO in the future.

Any tips on getting short listed?

Preference will be given to operators of retail, cultivation, infused products, extraction, technology, and investment-related companies. We are looking for a diverse lineup of speakers, including both those who have spoken at cannabis events in the past and those who have not, speakers covering a diverse range of geographic areas, those who are at different stages of their company evolution, and speakers who have not spoken recently at one of our conferences, as we strive to mix up speakers between events.
