LAS VEGAS, March 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE: PLTH) (OTCQB: PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, announced today that it has begun construction of a 2,000 sq. ft. Event Space, a part of the Phase II expansion of the Planet 13 Cannabis Entertainment Complex (the "SuperStore"). After successfully hosting VR Fest during the Consumer Electronics Show ("CES") Planet 13 has fielded a substantial number of requests to host various other events, including corporate events, conferences, and weddings. The Event Space will have the capacity to host up to 200 people and have the ability to expand capacity utilizing the coffee shop and bistro to host fully catered events for up to 350 people.

"During the two days that we hosted VR Fest, we had over 3,000 people in the SuperStore each day. Las Vegas brings people from all over the world together to attend unique events and personal celebrations each year. By building-out our Superstore footprint to host a selection of these gatherings in a super-premium environment centered around a holistic cannabis experience, we will give these visitors lasting memories, generate additional revenue and accelerate our brand extension efforts both nationally and internationally," said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "We view each event we host as an opportunity to showcase our brands and create a lasting memory. There is nothing like our Superstore anywhere in the world, and as our reputation has grown, we have experienced growing demand for a premium event space, located within walking distance of the Las Vegas Strip, to host everything from weddings to smaller conferences. We guarantee that you'll remember your event, the Superstore and the TRENDI vape that was with you the whole time."

The Phase II expansion of the Superstore will include a coffee shop, bistro/pizzeria, an event space, and a consumer-facing production facility. Every part of the Phase II expansion is designed to enhance the customer experience and entertainment value of the SuperStore, driving more traffic and creating a memorable experience for every visitor. The goal of the SuperStore is to drive the largest most diverse customer base of any dispensary in the world making it the perfect introductory point for new brands and the only one that can develop brand equity with customers across the United States and the world. All of Phase II, including the Event Space, is expected to be completed Q3 2019.
