Welcome to the unique Cultiva Expo & Congress!

Cultiva is the oldest and biggest Austrian hemp expo which revolves around a plant - the crop and medical plant hemp. The opinions on this traditional crop are as diverse, as are the topics at the Cultiva. Cannabis is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history and has been grown for fibre and oil production for thousands of years, as well as a medicinal plant in Asia and Egypt.

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 national & international exhibitors present the latest trends from the thematic focal points health (CBD), seeds, hemp products, Smoking accessories and horticulture. Workshops, Live-shows, innovations and product presentations as well as special offers and more, round off the program. The botanical garden in the unique glass pyramid of the event hotel in Vösendorf near Vienna offers the best setting for this. For the 13th time in a row, the Cultiva presents itself in a natural environment, surrounded by palm trees and exotic plants on a light-flooded area of ​​8,000 m².

The free shuttle bus, which brings expo and congress visitors from the U6 station Siebenhirten directly to the Cultiva entrance, ensures a relaxed journey - every 15 minutes. The good connection to the public transport system, thanks to the Badner Bahn and various bus lines, offers an environmentally friendly and problem-free alternative to individual transport.

Be sure to catch a breath and and chill-out in the pyramid's sunny garden. This ambience is perfect for relaxing with easy going sounds in front of the garden stage and indulging in the culinary delights of the Cultiva caterers.

The thirst for knowledge for information and facts can also be quenched thanks to the diverse program of the event. The Cultiva FORUM is a marketplace for start-ups and new products and invites to discussions and exchange of know-how. Innovations, documentation and interesting facts you might want to know about the useful and medical plant hemp are presented.

The Cultiva Congress is THE hotspot for topics such as medicine, law and culture. International experts will talk about current developments, studies and trends. The focus has traditionally been on cannabis as medicine, but the legal situation is also becoming increasingly important. This year's round of experts on traffic law promises to be very exciting with top-class participants.
