The first of its kind in the UK, this trade show will be solely dedicated to hemp products and the Cannabidiol (CBD) industry, boasting exhibitors from every step of the supply chain. 

...renowned for its excellence, the NEC was an easy choice

In its mission to educate and unify on what is often a misunderstood industry, the Expo aims to spread knowledge and information and bring people together under one roof.  From raw material providers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and shop owners right through to the everyday consumer; there’ll be something for everybody.

Organisers decided to bring the Expo to the NEC, due to the venue’s outstanding reputation, size and easy access.  Tommy Prendergast of the Hemp and CBD Expo said: “The hemp industry is a large and professional industry, and we felt this should be reflected appropriately; we decided to demonstrate this by selecting the most prestigious venue for an industry in need of stabilisation and a positive change in public perception.

“Located in the central region of the UK, renowned for its excellence and large enough for everyone with an interest to come along; it was an easy choice.”

With increasing demand and the industry on the rise in the UK, talks are already underway regarding a second show at the venue.  “We hope to continually grow in line with the hemp market in the UK, whilst raising awareness of this fantastic industry” adds Prendergast.
