Athens, Balkannabis Expo 2018

Athens, Balkannabis Expo 2018

The organisers of the first Balkannabis Expo which will take place in Athens, speak of a “historic event that will become a focal point for the Balkan and S.E. Europe cannabis market”.

Whoever might think that it is an illegal thing we are talking about, would be wrong.

The Athens, Balkannabis Expo 2018 is an event focused on the applications of cannabis, to a great extent as a medical treatment and its future presence in Greece and the Balkans through certified trades and organisations concentrating on its (wider) use.

The event which will take place in Technopolis space, in downtown Athens, on June 1-3, “is an international, professional and commercial, exhibition of Hemp and Medical Cannabis businesses, organizations and applications. It will host companies from all productive sectors: growing, harvesting and processing technologies, seeds, distributors, producers, wholesalers, retailers and innovators.

BALKANNABIS EXPO will be a unique opportunity to show case your business, products and services, to expand your trades into new markets and establish new client relationships. Three indoor and two outdoor exhibition areas, covering more than 7.000 sq. meters, will host about 100 exhibitors from the global cannabis industry, in an unprecedented inauguration of the Greek and Balkan market.”

Specialised scientists and experts who will speak at the international expo come from the U.S., Czech Republic, the UK, Germany and Spain just to name a few countries.

BALKANNABIS is more than an EXPO. It will host two international Conferences with highly acclaimed speakers representing the business and research sectors. One day will be dedicated to the science and application of Medical Cannabis and the next day on the Hemp industry.”

On June 1st there will be the MedCannabis Science Conference (12.00 – 21.00) that will offer more information on the latest research findings and cannabinoid medical products (i.e. processing, manufacturing, etc.).

On June 2nd, the Athens Hemp Summit (12.00 – 21.00) will take place. This day-long conference will examine and present the hemp industry, as well as the status and prospects of it (i.e. production technologies, ecology and economics of hemp, fabric,
building with hemp, etc.)…. / IBNA
