    The RAD Expo is going to be a great event for cannabis retailers. This event isn't like many of the other trade shows out there that dispensary owners have stoped attending because they cost too much; have a hodgepodge of vendors; allow in the general public; lack focus; and have the same old speakers talk about the same tired subjects.

    RAD Expo is different - It is businesses only and 100% focused on the retail side of the industry.

    Attendance is FREE for licensed retail stores and dispensaries, as well as qualified applicants in states not yet issuing licenses.  All exhibitors will have products and services aimed at making retailers more profitable. It’s a national show featuring businesses from all over the U.S.

    Located at Portland's Oregon Convention Center the conference is squarely in the middle of the biggest legal marijuana market in the world, (60 million consumers in California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska).


    The RAD Expo will feature retail-specific exhibitors, including: POS sales products, shelving, display cases, accessories, food, drinks, refrigerators, programming consultants, packaging, POP displays, legal, accounting, CBD products, medical products, and just about everything and anything a retail store owner or dispensary will need to set up a store, or would want to sell. 

    EXHIBITORS - Businesses serving retailers including branding & marketing, POS, inventory management, security, merchandising, tech and software, displays, accounting, lighting, design, food and drink,  and everything in between.


    RETAILERS and dispensary owners from around the U.S. can find everything they need to operate in one organized, professional environment.


    THE FARMERS MARKET will give licensed cannabis cultivators the opportunity to network with retailers and create lasting business partnerships.

    The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will hold a Metrc Licensee User Group meeting, which is open to the public.

    The Metrc Licensee User Group is made up of OLCC licensed producers, processor, wholesalers, retailers, and labs, and OHA registered grow sites, processors, and dispensaries that report into CTS.

    The User Group identifies and prioritizes system enhancements to CTS for the OLCC to consider.
