Welcome to the unique Cultiva Hemp Expo & Congress!

Here all revolves around the useful and medical plant hemp in all its fascinating facets. The usage of the cultivar ranges from food, sustainable natural resource for industries and precious super food up to medical products and cosmetic products. More than 150 exhibitors are showing the latest trends and offering numerous innovations and special expo deals. The botanical garden in the unique glass pyramid near Vienna is the ideal location for this event. On a light-flooded area of 8.000m², surrounded by palm trees and other exotic plants in nearly natural ambience, Cultiva presents itself for the 12th time in a row.

Various exhibitors with the thematic focal points health (CBD), seeds, hemp products and accessories, head and horticulture will be represented with booths. Workshops, Live-shows, innovations and product presentations as well as special offers, will round off the program.

In addition to the companies exhibiting, once again the marvellous glass blowing show powered by ROOR will take place in the special bungalow, where you can watch international artist blowing the most spectacular artworks from glass. Of course, our traditional live cooking show and hemp-rope-workshops will also be part of Cultiva 2019.

Right next to the glass blowing show, our newly established “HempStoff” bungalow invites you to find out all about how hemp is used for fashion, mattresses and blankets. As a special treat, our visitors will have the opportunity to watch a hemp fashion show with clothes made of hemp.

The newly established Cultiva FORUM is a marketplace for start-ups and product news and gives the opportunity for discussions as well as the exchange of know-how. Innovations, documentations and interesting things you might want to know about the useful and medical plant hemp are presented.

Be sure to catch a breath and leave all your cares behind in the sunny garden area of the Eventpyramid. The great atmosphere and ambience are prefect to relax in the fresh air accompanied by easy going sounds of the garden stage and abandon yourself to the culinary pleasures of the Cultiva caterers.

The Cultiva Cannabis Congress that takes place at the same time in the enclosed Eventhotel Pyramide is THE hotspot for topics such as medicine, law, politics and culture. International experts will talk about current developments, studies and trends. Once again, the congress will focus on the wide and evolving area of cannabis in medicine as this topic gains more and more interest well as the legal regulations, which have changed in many countries in the past months. The unique Cultiva Patients Lounge offers an exclusive platform for personal discussions in small groups with the experts of the cannabis congress, for those who are affected. And finally, the program will once again include expert panels at the congress.

The legendary Cultiva pool party has returned to the wellness area in the Eventpyramid and takes place on Saturday, directly after the expo and congress. Drop by – preferably with our free-of-charge shuttle bus leaves from the metro station U6 Siebenhirten or come by Badner Bahn – and experience the Cultiva Hemp Expo and the Cultiva Cannabis Congress live!
