Between 31st of October untill 2nd of November Naples will be hosting the first international "Canapa in Mostra" fair, exibiting industrial hemp and medical cannabis. The event is organized by the Italian association with the same name.
"The fair, which will take place in the Motra dÓltremare facility, enjoys support from influential figures in the academic sphere, such as Max During, with the Federico II Department of Engineering, dedicated to studying the hemp industry; Livio Luongo, dedicated to the sphere of experimental medicine and pharmacology; and Francesco Minucci, who works on the possible applications of cannabis in the cosmetics industry."
The purpose of this fair is to shine a light on an industry that, the last century saw a progressive decline in hemp production and commercialization but in recent years there has been a renewed interest in it, both social and economic. Particularly by small producers in the country, who are now able to make a living, despite the current economic crisis, thanks to their low-cost crops.
"This association also wishes to provide the public and the institutions with varied and verified information, as well as to make known the extensive history of cannabis in Italy, especially in the region of Campania (Naples), where before prohibition many lived off the production of hemp for industrial and therapeutic use"
Aside from the many conferences throughout the weekend, the fair also offers a wide range of music, entertainment and workshops.
This year the first edition of EXPOGROW is held in the Basque town of Irun, at the fairgrounds of Ficoba which is located just 200 meters from the French border. France is one of the largest markets in the Grow sector and has not had the opportunity to have an International Fair cannabis until today.
The main feature of Expogrow is to unite three concepts into one to provide added value to both visitors and exhibitors. It's a trade show, a festival and a forum.
Visitors can enjoy the latest grow industry news, attend concerts with artists of the highest order and participate in a international cannabis forum.
Cannafest is the best way for companies from this field of interest to strengthen their positions on the Czech market, develop contacts for professionals and public but also for example to reach easier the “Eastern countries” as Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and others as Cannafest is going to advertise totally in more then ten countries to attract as many professionals and visitors as possible.
Cannafest team prepares the business lounge for all the exhibitors, their guests and professional visitors to feel more comfortable during their business meetings or just for relaxation with some cocktail from Cannabar together with catering delicacies.
There is a rich professional program for everyone who would like to upgrade the knowledge about growing, medical use of hemp or for example using of hemp as a building material. Visitors can also participate in lots of various competitions or attend some of the hemp-movies, workshops or concerts.
