A huge shopping event is headed to downtown Tampa this November. The Alternative Products Expo brings together more than 500 vendors for a market featuring all things counterculture. This includes mushroom and cannabis products, in addition to kratom, herbal supplements, mood enhancers and more. This event takes place November 11-12 at the Tampa Convention Center along the beautiful Riverwalk. The Tampa Convention Center is conveniently located right next to The Sail Pavilion, and the Tampa Riverwalk. You can shop all day here, and then enjoy easy access to the best dining and nightlife in the city.

I Love the Burg and That’s So Tampa followers can get FREE passes to the event with code THEBURG.


Alternative Products Expo is a 21+ event that brings vape, cannabis, and all things counterculture under one roof. Guests and vendors can network with the nation’s largest manufacturers and leading brands, discover new product innovations and trends, get updated on industry regulation and find the best show-exclusive deals. Whether you are an independent retailer, a distributor, a consumer, or just a curious individual, they have everything you need.

Alternative Products Expo brings major giveaways and discounts to Tampa Bay

This expo includes major giveaways and deep event-only discounts on marquee products. Live seminars will be held throughout the day. One of the new additions to the show comes in the way of Alt Pro Bucks, an option for industry buyers to increase their purchasing power by acquiring Alt Pro Bucks. This exclusive buyer add-on allows buyers to increase their purchasing power. This new Benefit can be acquired by contacting Alt Pro Expo or approaching the Alt Pro Bucks booth at the event.

“The industry needs grounds for business to happen naturally while offering attendees with meaningful and lasting experiences. With this edition of the show, we want to emulate that feeling people get when they visit a fair or a festival, you win prizes, have fun at attractions, meet other people, and come home with a happy and lasting memory. We want Alt Pro Exp to be a celebration of counter-culture.” Said Jason Monti in a press release.


2 days of shopping and seminars along the Riverwalk

Products fall into the alternative category when they’re either a substitute for a better-known product or when there’s nothing else in the market like it. This is your chance to explore new products for yourself, or find unique gifts for that person on your list.

Alternative Products Tampa schedule:

Friday 11am-6pm
Saturday 11am-5pm

The Tampa Convention Center is located at 333 S Franklin Street.
