The response comes after the postponement of Coachella Music Festival
Hall of Flowers, the west coasts premiere B2B cannabis trade show which was scheduled to have its first show in Southern California ever next month, has cancelled over concerns regarding COVID-19 better known as Coronavirus.
We want to express our deep concern for everyone impacted by COVID-19. Despite our excitement about our first Hall of Flowers scheduled for April 1st-2nd in Southern California, we regret to inform you that we must officially postpone the event.Hall of Flowers Team
This decision was not made easily, and it was guided by ongoing developments with the virus. This also included the recommendations from State and County Public Health Officials, recently postponed events in Riverside County such as BNP Paribas Open, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and Stagecoach Festival, and as well as the valued feedback from the cannabis community.
Looking ahead, retail and attendee registration will roll over to the next Hall of Flowers. For our Brand partners, all contracts will also carry over to the next event.
We want to assure you that we are already developing our contingency plan to reschedule this postponement and will announce the dates as soon as they are secured.
We would like to thank all of our exhibitors, partners, attendees, suppliers, media and staff for their support and communication during this time.
The message, which was posted on the Hall of Flowers website, appeared after other high profile events such as SXSW and Coachella postponed their shows over concerns related to the epidemic. MRR will keep a close watch on all cannabis related trade shows as they respond to the virus.
