In September 2024, Bilbao will welcome enthusiasts and professionals of the sector during a special edition of Spannabis, thus consolidating Spain’s position as a key epicenter of the European cannabis industry.
Europe’s main cannabis fair will also be held in Barcelona in March (15th to 17th) as usual.
A new chapter: Spannabis Bilbao
The Feria del Cáñamo, which welcomes more than 70,000 participants, has ambitious plans for 2024. In addition to the already traditional Barcelona event in March, Spannabis Bilbao will be inaugurated in September, with the hope of replicating the same success in the Basque capital.
After the interruption in 2023 of Expogrow, the last major cannabis event in the Basque Country, Spannabis seized the opportunity to fill the void.
The organizers chose Bilbao for several reasons, including the presence of a growing cannabis community and a culture open to consumption. In addition, Bilbao, with its high gross domestic product, offers optimal infrastructure for major events. The city is also an icon of architectural design.
Spannabis Bilbao will be held at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, covering 10,000m² of indoor space and an additional 2,000m² outdoors for stages and catering areas. The event will take place on September 20, 21 and 22, 2024.
In addition to stands and exhibitors, attendees will be able to access expert talks and learn about new developments in the sector. Tickets are available online and at the exhibition center ticket offices.
An area will be exclusively dedicated to hemp and CBD, where participants can learn about the benefits of these natural products from experts.
As a preamble to the Bilbao event, Spannabis Barcelona, which serves as an inspiration and model, has everything planned for its March 2024 edition. With 280 international exhibitors and the presence of World Cannabis Conferences in its 12th edition, it promises to once again be a benchmark event. Furthermore, the Spannabis Champions Cup will judge the traditional categories of cannabis products.
