Cultiva Hanfmesse

A top Austrian exhibition and one of the most important European cannabis trade shows, the Cultiva Hanfmesse (“Hemp Trade Fair” according the official website) attracts some 150 exhibitors from across the globe every year.


It takes place in the unusual setting of the 42 meters tall Event Pyramid at the exhibition grounds in Vienna’s Vösendorf neighborhood. The exposition is being expanded each year and the latest trends in the world of cannabis will therefore be presented this year in an area of 15,000 m². One section of the exhibition is dedicated to a great variety of products for cultivation, fertilization and plant protection made by different international manufacturers, as well as cosmetic, food or construction industry products. The second section focuses on accessories and complements, on innovations, culture, media and conferences.

The latter are related to another part of the program, the international Cultiva Cannabis Congress. The event welcomes major experts and speakers from the fields of science, research, medicine and policy, who discuss a wide range of topics, such as cannabis in medicine or legislation. There’s also a lecture hall for cannabis patients, presenting them with a unique opportunity to personally meet the top-notch experts in the field.

The program is accompanied by a number of artistic performances (Cultiva Glassblowing Show), presentations of top chefs and their cannabis meals in the Cultiva Cooking section and of course by a series of concerts and DJ sets. If that’s still not enough for you, you may visit the legendary Cultiva Pool dance party, held in a local wellness center. On their arrival to the trade fair, each visitor receives a welcome gift in the form of a free brochure with vouchers offering attractive discounts on goods sold by exhibitors. Free transport from the town center is provided by a bus shuttle service.
