HQConX- a Virtual Trade Show


Now’s the time to come together —- but not in person. With social distancing, travel restrictions and hospitality business closures, attending an industry trade show is next to impossible — that’s why HQ Magazine would like to invite you to the first-ever VIRTUAL smoke shop industry trade show!


HQConX will bring together the top vendors from the smoke shop industry to pitch their products during a LIVE online experience. Attendees and exhibitors will be able to interact as they would at an in-person event, but from the safety and comfort of their own home or office. For smoke shop owners (and their staff) there’s no standing in lines, no hotel check-in and no missed connections. For vendors, this is a unique opportunity to promote your newest products, put a face to your brand and reach unlimited customers through the nowness of the internet. Best of all — the virtual smoke shop show is absolutely FREE courtesy of HQ Magazine!


For more than twenty years, HQ Magazine has been the trusted source of information to those in the cannabis and counter-culture industries. The virtual smoke shop show is one more way we’re continuing to support our community and further our mission to help retailers and vendors be effective, successful businesses. 


With expressed interest, HQ will send vendors a registration link. The registration link will include commercial time slots. Vendors should choose the time slot that works best for their schedule. Commercials/interviews will be capped at 10 minutes. Once HQ receives a registration form, a representative will follow up with additional details.


In order to streamline the virtual trade show, we are asking all vendors to join the HQ Shopping Program. This is a free platform to highlight up to 12 products. All trade show commercials will be linked to ShopHQ to allow retailers to purchase the products they see and hear about during the show. Specs and additional details will be provided. 


The show dates will run in May (subject to change, until finalized). For registration details, please email info@HQConX.com. Act fast…HQ will be limiting the number of commercial space/time slots available.
