Leaf Traders’ Online Portal is Hosting Michigan’s Cannabis Community Awards Nominations and Voting

Sponsored by Businesswire

Leaf Traders is taking nominations and tabulating the vote count for the Michigan Cannabis Community Awards.

The winners of four distinct categories (business, industry, government, and all-around) will be recognized at a special reception Oct. 11 at the Crown Plaza, culminating the first day of events of the Michigan Commercial Cannabis Conference & Expo, held Oct. 11 and 12 at the newly renamed TCF Center in downtown Detroit.

“Leaf Traders reflects the promise, opportunity and progress of Michigan, and we’re glad to have them as a key partner for the expo and the Michigan Cannabis Community Awards,” said Conference Director Thomas Tong.

Leaf Traders is dramatically stepping up its involvement this year at MCCCE, the state’s pre-eminent B2B expo featuring more than 200 organizations, 50 speakers, a Hemp Room and several, important industry panel discussions.

Leaf Traders, based in Traverse City, Mich., will serve as a program board sponsor for the second straight year in a multi-year agreement, and showcase its technology at Booth E12 at its first conference exhibit. The company will also host the official attendee and exhibitor surveys on

“Unlike other conferences that roll through Michigan, Thomas Tong and Cannabis-Aid created this event to build and serve the cannabis community in Michigan and the Midwest through support, education and highlighting the local industry,” said Leaf Traders Founder and Chief Executive Brad Basar, who established the company in 2017. “This is the only Michigan event we make sure to sponsor.”

Leaf Traders last month launched the Cannabis Survey Marketplace, or CSM, a platform for customized cannabis and hemp B2C and B2B research that offers consumers cash rewards for completing surveys.
