Hundreds of buyers shopped across the 3 days of the inaugural event
After a wild 3 days, CHAMPS Virtual Trade Show ended with a massive outpouring of support from the community on the show floor of Ganja Garden. It was the first entry into virtual trade shows for CHAMPS Trade Shows, who last had an in-person event back in February, and by all accounts it was an incredibly successful one.
“Together, a united industry came together to show the world that we, as an industry are not only recession-proof but now pandemic proof.” said David Hirshfeld, co-producer for the CHAMPS Virtual Trade Show. “Our industry together, uniting and communicating, is a force.” he continued, “We are here, and we will continue to thrive.”
Buyers who registered for free to the completely digital event were treated to 4 full virtual halls filled with some of today’s top counter-culture brands. CHAMPS Trade Shows used Virtway, a company focused on digital events, to re-create the physical show experience within a virtual world, complete with in-booth salespeople, demonstrations, video walls, banners, and much, much more!
This was an incredible first virtual show, and while all attendees wished we could have been in-person, the CHAMPS Virtual Trade Show proved it was the perfect way to continue to connect the industry together.

Black Ball Corp.
