Exhibitor FAQ

CFS is moved to Oct/Nov 2020

In the interest of addressing the health and safety concerns of our stakeholders the Executive Committee of Beverage Trade Network, Organizer of Cannabis Food Show in San Francisco has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 CFS Event to Oct/Nov, 2020.

What happens to my July / Aug visitor ticket?

Visitor tickets purchased by Eventbrite will be valid for your October / November dates. No action is needed from your side, your tickets have already been changed.

What happens to my exhibitor fees and booking?

All July/ August 2020 exhibitors will hold the same contract and your table number and positions will stay the same. No refund will be provided to exhibitors. All exhibitors statement balance will be moved to new dates.

What happens to my hotel and flight booking?

We understand that many folks have booked flights and hotels. Many airlines and hotels are allowing cancellations in response to the coronavirus. We are unable to provide information on contracts between customers and third parties, as these have not been concluded with CFS.
