Cultiva Hemp Expo and Cultiva Cannabis Congress 2018

From 12 to 14 October, the Austrian CULTIVA Hemp Expo will be taking place in the Event Pyramid in Vösendorf, near Vienna, for the 11 time in succession. More than 150 exhibitors present the latest trends and innovations around the versatile hemp plant on 6,000m² of exotic space. The portfolio of products presented, ranges from cultivation, care, fertilisation, plant protection as well as the newest literature. In addition, cosmetic goods, textiles and the superfood hemp are part of the wide spread presentation. Numerous innovations and sensations all around the useful and medical hemp plant are awaiting the visitors. The botanical garden set in the unique 42 m high und 8,000 m² large glass pyramid near Vienna, provides the best framework for this purpose.

Alongside the Hemp Expo, the established Cultiva Cannabis Congress with experts from all over the world, will take place. International high-profile speakers from the fields of science, research, medicine and politics will speak on a wide range of topics such as cannabis in medicine, as raw material, legal issues, indoor gardening and hemp as food. Once again, the Congress will be focussing on the wide and evolving area of cannabis in medicine as well as the legal regulations.

The expanded patients lounge offers an exclusive platform for personal discussions in small groups with the experts of the cannabis congress, for those who are affected. This unique offer will surely be taken up by many patients and visitors, as were else would they have the opportunity to meet up and talk with leading experts.

Another highlight with tradition, are the interesting and interactive shows on the workshop stage – one of those featuring nearly forgotten craftsmanship for handling the raw material hemp. The best glass artists in the world promise once again a great show, demonstrating their skills live at the Cultiva Glassblowing Show. The fact that hemp is not only a valuable but also delicate food is demonstrated by the show chef Friedrich Pinteritsch live at the Cultiva Cooking isle.

Musical entertainment is guaranteed in the form of concerts and DJ sets in the garden area. And to relax and warm up, the fireplace will offer expo visitors an environment to recover. Thanks to mobile canteens an extensive and creative range of dishes are available, whilst the cosy atmosphere in the Cultiva Coffee House encourages visitors to linger a while.

Everyone is welcome to get an idea of how versatile the useful and medical plant hemp actually is and to get up-to-date with current developments in the field of medicine.
