Since receiving an official statement from The Venetian which restricted the advertising, distribution, selling or use of hemp-based products (i.e. CBD products) on their property, ISPA has undertaken a firm stance of advocacy to defend this thriving trend in the industry. In order to do this while maintaining full adherence to The Venetian and the ISPA Conference & Expo attendance policies, ISPA provided companies who exclusively offer hemp-based products with the opportunity to invest in a digital exposure package which also allows them to attend the event without exhibiting or sponsoring. The following brands took advantage of this opportunity and have a presence here, as well as on the ISPA Conference mobile app. We hope you will find time to learn more about their brands and reach out to connect with them onsite.
Important Update Regarding The Venetian’s Restriction of CBD Based Products at the ISPA Conference & Expo (updated Friday, August 30, 2019)
Following months of negotiations and efforts to educate The Venetian on the impact a CBD product restriction has on ISPA members and the spa industry, ISPA is excited to share that the restrictions previously imposed by The Venetian have been lifted. As of Friday, August 30, 2019, participating exhibitors and sponsors of the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo may showcase products containing CBD under the following guidelines:
- Exhibitors may display packaging and marketing materials for CBD products with less than 0.3% THC during the Conference without limitation.
- Exhibitors may display CBD products on the floor during the Conference so long as such products are in full compliance with FDA requirements. In addition, exhibitors displaying such products on the floor must produce: (a) Certificates of Analysis issued by an independent lab identifying that the THC levels in the CBD products on display are less than 0.3%; and (b) information regarding the independent lab who conducted such testing, including license and certification information for the lab who performed the analysis, license/certification numbers for that lab, and the name(s) and contact information of the agency that issued such license(s) and certification(s).
The new guidelines replace the previous restriction mandated by The Venetian on June 18, 2019, which stated that The Venetian will not allow hemp-based products (which includes CBD products) to be sold or advertised for commercial purposes on property at The Venetian or Sands Expo Center.
