THE UK'S NO. 1 FOR CANNABIS PRODUCTS
– The Hemp & CBD Expo is the UK’s Largest Cannabis Products Trade show, primarily focused on connecting leading British and International brands with retail, wholesale, and distribution networks.
– We attract an average of 5000 visitors per Expo, with approx. a 75% Business & Trade / 25% Consumer & General Public ratio, Including visitors from across Europe, North America, and further afield.
TOP QUALITY BUSINESS LEADS
– Major retailers including the likes of Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy, Holland & Barrett, Waitrose, and ASDA have been attendance over the course of our first 3 Expos. Exhibitors at our 2019 and 2020 shows have landed major retail contracts off the back of these.
THE UK'S PREMIERE EXPO VENUE
-Our Expo takes place in Hall 2 of the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham UK. The NEC is the most prestigious event centre for trade fairs in Britain. It is centrally located and caters for all visitors, with on-site hotels, International train station, and BHX airport just 3 minutes shuttle ride away from the venue.
The NEC has become the UK’s number one venue of choice for organizers, exhibitors, and visitors.
THE NEC – THE UK’S NUMBER ONE VENUE – is where brands are born, products are launched and networks are made. The venue welcomes 2.1 million visitors and over 34,000 exhibiting companies to over 500 events every year and is 80% larger than the UK’s next largest exhibition venue.
The NEC originally had seven exhibition halls upon its creation in 1976 – today there are 20. Not to mention 34 conference suites and a host of additional outdoor spaces.
Resorts World Birmingham – the UK’s first integrated destination leisure and entertainment complex – opened on the NEC site in 2015. It comprises a casino, four-star boutique hotel, and Asian-themed Santai Spa, an outlet shopping center containing 50 units, an 11-screen IMAX cinema, 18 restaurants and bars, and the Vox – a multi-use conference and banqueting facility managed by the ICC Birmingham team.
The £150 million development has made the NEC site a 24/7 visitor destination and supports the continued prosperity and growth of the NEC campus, which now welcomes six million visitors each year.
