Cannafest - Prague 2016
Sexta, 11/11/16 to Domingo, 13/11/16
República Checa

The international trade fair of cannabis and medicinal herbs will be entering its sixth run this year. Traditionally, it will open its gates in November, concretely 6/11 – 8/11 2015 at Incheba Fairground in Prague, Holesovice. Although only a few weeks remain until its start, the preparation for the event has been fully underway.

Last year, Cannafest saw a record number of exhibitors from 21 countries in the world and in terms of its scope even beat Spannabis, the global cannabis trade fair which annually takes place in Barcelona. And what will Cannafest 2015 look like? This year, too, the trade fair will host exhibitors presenting their cultivation technology, fertilizers, seeds, smoking accessories and vaporizers.  Manufacturers of cosmetic products, clothing items, foods or media focused on raising awareness about cannabis will also be present along with umbrella institutions for companies which use cannabis as a natural resource or fight for legalisation and the use of cannabis in medicine.

Cannabis Concerns Everyone

Trade fair organizers are also getting a number of innovations and clever solutions for visitors ready to make their trade fair experience as enjoyable as possible. One of them consists of changes in the organization of visitor check-in. “We do not want people who come to see the fair have to wait outside the entrance for a long time. We want them to be able to enter the grounds smoothly and without difficulties. This is also related to the improvements of the trade fair IT system carried out”, points out Lukáš Běhal, Director of the trade fair. He also revealed that this year, Cannafest will be focused on the medicinal use of cannabis even more intensively than over recent years. Currently, the program for a three-day expert conference which annually draws a great attention of both specialists and the general public is being completed. The trade fair director indicated that Lumír Hanuš, a leading expert on cannabis from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem confirmed his presence along with a delegation of cannabis experts from Israel.

Look Forward to Vapo Lounge and Cinema

You can be sure you’ll also have a lot of fun at Cannafest. The trade fair bustle will be enlivened by a varied accompanying program.  You can try out the popular Vapo Lounge allowing you to test individual vaporizers by leading manufacturers firsthand. You can inhale medicinal plants available. Film fans, and not only them, will appreciate the traditional Cannafest Cinema showing both documentary and feature films about cannabis. The festival will also include a fashion show of cannabis clothing and degustation contests of cannabis drinks. Organizers also think of parents with small children – a supervised play area will be available – so when parents will be checking out the innovations in the cannabis scene their offspring will be looked after by professional caretakers. Moms will be able to make use of a private area for changing their babies,  feeding or breastfeeding. To escape the busy festival atmosphere, visitors can enjoy the Rolls and Smoking Chillout Zone located in front of the exhibition palace. Fans of a healthy lifestyle and anyone else interested can enjoy cannabis catering which is so typical for Cannafest.
