The Private Label Manufacturers Associations (PLMA) sold-out 2022 Private Label Trade Show will showcase a variety of hemp-derived CBD products from Nov. 13-15 in Chicago at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
Nearly 30 exhibitors of hemp-derived CBD products will be located throughout the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, including a dedicated CBD pavilion in the South Hall. CBD suppliers will join more than 1,400 exhibitors and 2,300 exhibit booths at the Show — the largest event for store brands in North America.
“CBD products are a fast-growing store brand category with continued innovation,” said PLMA Corporate Vice President Anthony Aloia. “The Private Label Trade Show will give retail buyers new ideas about broad and full spectrum CBD formulations, tinctures, oils, gels, lotions and creams, topicals, capsules and pet items, among other products.”
Additionally, a panel discussion on hemp will be held on Sunday, Nov. 13. Entitled “Hemp is More than CBD,” the session will address how hemp is considered a superfood and how it can be used in many different applications. The moderator is Joe Linne, Vice President of Hemp Brand Builders. Panelists are Rachel Berry of the Illinois Hemp Growers Association; Evan Ogburn of Pharm CBD; Lynn Sarsgard of Hemp Brand Builders and Adrienne Snow of Western States Hemp.
Along with CBD, the show floor will have dedicated areas for wine and spirits, plant-based meats and entrees, and nonfoods.
The Private Label Manufacturers Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1979 to promote the store brands industry. It is the only trade group of its kind, representing 3,800 member companies in more than 75 countries.
