For the first time a hemp fair takes place in the heart of Vienna. From the 26th to 28th of April the Marx Halle opens its doors for Austria’s biggest hemp fair. On 18,000 sqm exhibition space more than 120 exhibitors will present their products for cultivation, fertilization and plant protection, as well as hemp products and everything around CBD. The HANFEXPO covers a wide range of topics like cosmetics, textiles, building materials, food and basically anything else made out of the hemp plant.
The GRANDGREEN Symposium
A symposium will be held as part of the fair. On all three days, international and national speakers from the fields of medicine, health, science, business and politics will present interesting keynotes, presentations and expert talks. An important focus of the symposium will be on the legal framework of Cannabis and CBD and their medical use. Additionally, a show cook demonstrates on stage how hemp can be used in the kitchen. Furthermore, CONDA – Austria’s Crowdinvesting platform, organizes a challenge for Startups of the hemp industry and performs their pitches at the symposium.
The spacious outdoor area becomes a place of relaxation and enjoyment. Foodtrucks serve visitors with culinary delicacies, drinks and coffee. Deckchairs and beanbags invite you to relax and a live DJ plays the whole day.
The MARX HALLE is an industrial building from the 19th century. The high halls, the central location and the good accessibility by public transport are the best conditions for the HANFEXPO 2019. With two separate studios, the oldest wrought iron construction in Europe provides a structure of the fair in two areas and creates an ambience of a special kind.
The MARX HALLE can be reached from the airport in only 15 minutes. The central location of MARX HALLE makes it easy to travel to the event by public transport or bicycle. A shuttle service between the Erdberg U3 station and the exhibition grounds will take you directly to the fair at regular intervals. In order to promote the environmentally friendly handling of HANFEXPO, the organizer will also provide additional bicycle parking spaces
The entire execution of the HANFEXPO is characterized by sustainability. The implementation of resource-conserving and environmentally friendly measures has a significant impact on the organization of Austria’s largest hemp trade fair. HANFEXPO is in the process of being certified as an ECO-Event.
