Ground-breaking new cannabis food and beverage experience features exclusive demos, in-depth presentations and expert panels led by renowned chefs and other top innovators in food, beverage and hospitality 

San Francisco (July 12, 2023)–Lift Events and Experiences’ inaugural U.S. event, Lift San Francisco, August 3 – August 4, 2023 at the Moscone Convention Center, will feature several new elements including the inaugural Taste at Lift: Cannabis Food & Beverage Experience. This is a unique opportunity to partake in exclusive demos, in-depth presentations and expert panels led by the top innovators in the cannabis food, beverage and hospitality industries.

Taste at Lift will showcase the newest culinary cannabis trends, tips and techniques, and programming includes:

      • Tourism & Cannabis Cuisine: Creating Delicious Destination Experiences Near & Far

      • Terpene Enlightenment: How & Why Cannabis Food & Beverage Pioneers are Elevating Consumables (Minus the High)

Taste at Lift will wrap up with a two-hour long Iron Chef-style cooking competition featuring a delicious face-off between two cannabis culinary stars, and a group of judges will crown the winner. Competitors will create multiple courses with both infused and non-infused options available for judges and select attendees to sample.

“I believe food and beverage is the real opportunity in cannabis today, drawing in the canna-curious and educating them through familiar ways of consumption. Taste at Lift is the first platform for the cannabis food and beverage supply chain to connect, ideate, educate, and celebrate obstacles overcome and successes achieved,” said Chef Jordan Wagman, Lift’s Director of Cannabis Food & Beverage Growth. “Our team has been hard at work developing a program that showcases new and innovative ways to highlight cannabis food and beverage brands. From delicious edibles to refreshing cannabis-infused cocktails, Taste at Lift is sure to surprise, educate and delight attendees.”

Lift San Francisco will kick off with the Lift Cannabis Business Conference & Arcview Investment Summit on Thursday, August 3 followed by Taste at Lift: Cannabis Food & Beverage Experience on Friday, August 4. The Lift Expo will be in full swing both days, ensuring that all attendees have a chance to take in educational content, check out new and emerging brands, and engage in Lift’s best-in-class networking opportunities.
