Celebrate budtenders during budtender appreciation week (B-Week)

March 16, 2023  By Grow Opportunity Staff

(Globe Newswire) Toronto — Tether’s B-Week brings together budtenders, retailers, and brands from across Canada for a week of events to show gratitude to budtenders, and celebrate their hard work and dedication to the cannabis industry.

Launched in 2021, Tether is a community that activates over 3,000 budtenders and cannabis retailers; it offers impactful and authentic partnerships for brands that are looking to make an impression and connection. Budtenders told Tether they are looking for deeper education and meaningful brands to recommend to their customers. Tether events, including B-Week, bridge the gap and help to build meaningful relationships.

“We are proud to have partnered with great brands during B-Week to bring cultivation tours, education, and networking to our community. Budtenders are the frontline of our industry and Tether’s goal is to build a community that supports and celebrates their work.” — Katie Pringle, Tether co-founder and CEO of Marigold PR

B-Week will provide budtenders and retailers access to fun virtual and in-person cannabis facility tours, product-focused and educational panels, and a networking event at CannExpo, sponsored by CannMart & Roilty. During B-Week, there will be ample opportunities for prizes and a chance to mingle with other budtenders.
