WHY EXHIBIT WITH US?
The Hemp and CBD Expo will be the first of its kind in the UK. A trade show solely dedicated to the hemp products and CBD industry and boasting exhibitors from every step of the supply chain along the way.
The Hemp & CBD Expo 2019 will showcase products and services from farmers and growers, seed providers, to distributors, clothing companies, and hemp accessories, to hemp food products and paraphernalia and you can be part of it all…
PROMOTING THE EVENT
As with any first event, we’re not resting on our laurels in regards to our marketing and promotion for the show. We’ve already begun visiting Hemp focused events around Europe, and will also be spreading the word in the USA and more in search of top exhibitors, partners and trade visitors. We’ll be teaming up with select media partners and advertising in hemp magazines and media channels around the globe, as well as distributing our FIRST LAUNCH ISSUE of our own Hemp magazine – delivered to CBD stockists around the UK one month before the show. We’re pleased to announce that every one of our exhibitors who take a stand at our first show will receive a FREE page in the magazine that will also serve as our show guide for the event!
WHERE WILL THE SHOW BE HELD?
We’ve chosen the NEC for our event to help set a precedent for a professional business feel for the show as our main goal is to attract trade visitors and have our exhibitors make the vital business connections needed for continual growth in this budding market, with an added bonus of retail customers in attendance. The NEC boasts fantastic convenience in an array of nearby hotels, restaurants, and shopping in the form of Resorts World. Ample parking space and a host of transport links with BHX airport, and Birmingham International Station just a stones throw away! This is all to help provide peace of mind for our exhibitors in their plans to showcase their business at our show.
Exhibitors & RSVP After Party
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.
