KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2015 / Lexaria Corp. (LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the "Company") announces that ViPova(TM) by Lexaria is sponsoring its first major sales event; and also announces the hiring of a National Sales Strategist.
Lexaria has hired a National Sales and Compliance Strategist to execute the Company's sales initiatives across the United States. He has a successful history of building sales teams and developing sales channels from within the fast-growing hemp industry, and is intimately familiar with industry regulations and sales strategies that deliver results. Lexaria has tasked him with developing and fine tuning regulatory-specific sales initiatives for the ViPova(TM) CBD-infused tea, as well as for other ViPova(TM) products currently in development or under consideration.
Strategies for opening sales channels for Lexaria Energy(TM) branded products, beginning with a CBD-infused protein energy bar are also being developed. Lexaria will provide additional information about that product launch when available, expected in Q2, 2015. Lexaria is in the early stages of rolling out methods for increasing awareness for ViPova(TM) tea as well as other products being considered.
In coordination with this, Lexaria is pleased to be the official sponsor of the Heritage Classic Dancesport Championships competition, to be held March 3-7 in Asheville, NC. This major dance event, sanctioned by the National Dance Council of America, is expected to be attended by as many as 10,000 people, many of whom are professional or serious amateur dancers. The Heritage Classic has won the dance "Competition of the Year" award three times and will be awarding more than $110,000 in cash and scholarships.
Lexaria has found an exciting niche among competitive dancers who have already begun purchasing and drinking ViPova(TM) tea. "Professional dancers seem quite interested in our tea," says Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria Corp. "We are very pleased to be able to support this prestigious event and have the chance of answering questions and raising awareness of ViPova(TM) among this year's participants in the Heritage Classic."
Lexaria is identifying additional niche markets where it feels its marketing can be tightly focused for maximum effect. Announcements on other specific events and opportunities will be made in due course, as the year unfolds.
