After the success of last year’s event – Product Earth Expo is back for 2016.
If you haven’t got your ticket yet but are thinking of joining the fun this year - let us tell you why it will be well worth your time.
Product Earth Expo is the UK’s number one alternative trade show and festival. Featuring some of the biggest companies in the hemp and cannabis industries and a top notch music line up. Yes siree - it’s set to be a big one.
When we arrived at the Product Earth Expo last year we weren’t sure what to expect. After all it had been 5 years since the UK had hosted a similar event. And with European events like Spannabis and the High Times Cannabis Cup having differing fortunes it seemed unclear how a UK event would be received.
After visiting however it was safe to say we were suitably impressed by the well organised, chilled out event. So much so that we felt it only right we get involved this year and show our support.
Designed as a way to promote the expanding Hemp and Cannabis industry. Product Earth Expo ticks all the boxes and allows the public to see what’s going on, get involved and learn about the newest innovations in this exciting industry.
Mind you… It’s not a bunch of hippy types in a field either this event really reaches out to a wider audience with something for everyone to get involved in.
The event encompasses four key areas: Expo, Festival, Camping and Seminar.
This year the expo/trade show part of the fair will be bigger and better. There will be exhibitors from all kinds of companies, big and small, all with cannabis/hemp at the heart of their business. It’s a great opportunity to meet the clothing manufactures, food producers, seed banks and smoking paraphernalia companies that are shaping the scene.
Make sure to swing by our stand (E10-E11) where we’ll be offering special discounts throughout the weekend.
With headline acts such as Grandmaster Flash, Gentlemen’s Dub Club and Mike Skinner alongside sets from the likes of DJ Zinc, Congo Natty and A Skillz it’s an eclectic mix which is sure to attract a good crowd. See you down the front!
Plenty of “festivals” are turning their back on camping in favour of day tickets these days – not so at Product Earth. The camping zones open early from 4pm on Friday 24th June with music running late into the night. This gives you time to arrive, set up and get on it. If camping’s not your thing and you don't own your own mobile home there are plenty of hotels in the vicinity of the arena.
Most of you reading our blog will know the wonders of hemp and may already benefit from its many good uses; however for those that need convincing Product Earth aims to do just that.
Hemp plays a huge part in today’s society as we use hemp in botanicals, clothing, shoes and many car companies use hemp in their bodywork due to is lightweight strength and durable qualities.
Seminars will be held throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday to educate on the history of hemp, its many uses and benefits. There will be discussions on the potential for legalising cannabis in the UK. The seminar area was so well received last year that it has been moved into the centre of the expo as the focal point.
There are a growing number of people who are looking to use Cannabis medicinally; this event gives people the opportunity to chat and learn from groups like the United Patients Alliance (UPA) who fight for legal access to cannabis for patients with chronic conditions. They had this to say about last year’s event:
"From the over 18 to the over 70, from a postman to an ex-chief constable, from mothers to teachers, from artists to venture capitalists from those living with cancer, to those trying to live with themselves, horticulturists to entrepreneurs, impassioned speakers to cool and groovy musicians. People."
That’s the awesome part about Product Earth Expo there is such a diverse crowd that share a similar interest in Hemp.
All in all Product Earth Expo 2016 is set to be a hemp filled weekend with things to learn, great entertainment, good food and a chance to support the industry we’re all 100% behind.
