The Kratom Company was recently a featured exhibitor at the CHAMPS Trade Show in Las Vegas. CHAMPS is the premier B2B trade show for the smoke shop industry, with vendors that include cannabis manufacturers and distributors, glass artists, smoking accessory providers, extraction tech brands, and other professionals serving counter-culture industries. The Kratom Company was pleased to represent the growing kratom sector, with the goal of offering education and awareness.
About CHAMPS Las Vegas
Regarded as “the largest and most trusted counter-culture trade show in the world,” CHAMPS is held throughout the year in cities nationwide, including Denver, Daytona Beach, Orlando, and Atlantic City. The recent Las Vegas event was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center on July 26th through 29th, and The Kratom Company was one of over 400 exhibitors in attendance.
For over 20 years, CHAMPS has been connecting the most influential businesses in the cannabis, tobacco, vaping, and kratom industries, helping the sector to flourish despite the insurmountable challenges that these types of businesses face amid an inconsistent and often prohibitive legal landscape.
The Kratom Company at CHAMPS
The Kratom Company was honored to take part in this important event at the Las Vegas Convention Center. CHAMPS brings together the most trusted industry leaders, and our participation in events like this is just one small part of our commitment to networking with top brands and ensuring that kratom is better understood within the industry.
For instance, there is still a lot of confusion—even within the industry—about what distinguishes high-quality kratom from the imposters. A lot of well-meaning retail shops are still selling dangerous, adulterated kratom products without even realizing it, and many distributors, marketers, and other ancillary businesses likewise haven’t been exposed to the nuances of the kratom industry and are therefore insufficiently equipped to distinguish between brands and communicate the benefits of kratom in a meaningful way.
Our presence at the CHAMPS event served to accomplish several goals:
- To raise awareness about our brand and what makes it unique within the industry.
- To raise awareness about the types of poor-quality and imitation kratom products that are on the market—and how to identify them.
- To raise awareness about kratom itself to businesses that might have had minimal exposure to it (e.g. what it is, facts and myths, legal nuances, and how to counter the often-misleading negative press and perceptions).
- To network and partner with brands that share our commitment to quality and customer service.
Ultimately, our goal is to help ensure that everyone has access to high-quality kratom that’s all-natural, high-quality, and responsibly sourced from reputable kratom farms in Southeast Asia. Achieving this goal requires us to educate, network, and make our own products more widely available.
Events like the CHAMPS Trade Show allow us to do all of these things, and we had a lot of fun in the process. We hope to see you at our next event.
