If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s that connections are more important than ever — there was a time when face-to-face interaction were the norm, and while handshakes, fist bumps and exchanging business cards, is all well and good,  we can reach out through the virtual landscape of the internet and talk with anyone at any time, and unlike meeting in person or attending an industry event, we don’t even have to be wearing pants while we do it (just make sure your webcam is tilted up rather than down). 

Throughout the month of September, Headquest would like to invite you to take part in our Digital Demo Days. Surf on over to our Facebook page for live videos with some of the leading brands in the cannabis and smoke shop industries — and some new ones too — all in one place. Think of it as a one-stop-shop to learn about the newest products and put a face to a name with vendors, wholesalers, distributors (and a surprise guest or two in the mix just for fun). 

Being online doesn’t mean that you have to sit back and watch passively. During the livestreams, viewers can comment and ask questions which presenters can read and respond to in real time. Don’t pass up your chance to pick the brains of our industry’s top names and share your thoughts and ideas as well. 

With the holiday season fast approaching, HQ’s Digital Demo Days will be the perfect opportunity for smoke shop owners and staff  to get the insights needed to make informed buying decisions. Viewers will be able to tap on the products displayed in the streams to learn more, and if you see something that peaks your interest, you can order directly online from the HQ Marketplace during or after the events have wrapped. 

When the show is over, your opportunity to engage is not. Make the most of the presentations and squeeze out every drop of value from them by reviewing ones you attended or watching ones you missed — we’ll be rerunning them during the month and also posting them to our website for your on-demand convenience. 

Keep an eye on our social media feed in the coming days for a link to register for HQ’s Digital Demo Days and we’ll keep you posted on the what, where and when. Oh, and did we mention that you’ll have the chance to win some great prizes? That’s right! Register early and tune in for your snag free products and swag from our featured brands.

Claims of ‘Fentanyl-Laced Cannabis’ Are Common, But Are They Accurate?
