Reasons to Attend the Budtender's Bash

For Budtenders

During the typical workday, you're focused on your customers and don't have a lot of time to connect at a deeper level with brand reps. However, at a Budtender's Bash event, you can really get to know the stories behind the brands you sell and learn valuable product insights that you can share with your customers.


For Companies

Not only do you get to connect with budtenders in a relaxed setting and talk shop, but you have the chance to hear about the issues that your retailers' customers are facing—from medical customers to visitors looking for the best quality bud in Phoenix. Budtenders often have insights that aren’t published on Google Reviews or Yelp and that can help you improve your products.


For People Who Are Interested in Cannabis

Phoenix, AZ, is becoming a popular place for the canna-curious to visit and try their first taste of cannabis. And as many resorts are still smoke-free, the Clarendon Hotel and Spa is making a name for itself as one of the top 420-friendly accommodation options in Phoenix.


If you're visiting Arizona and are eager to be in on the best-kept secrets of the cannabis scene, be sure to put a Budtender's Bash event on the itinerary. With a menu that includes vendors, music, and food, you really can't go wrong.
