Blooming Big Business at the Cannabis Expo

A record number of people attended the Cape Town Cannabis Expo this past weekend.

It was only recently that the personal use of Cannabis was legalised in South Africa and just a few months since the inaugural launch of The Cannabis Expo in Pretoria.

This past weekend The Cannabis Expo in Cape Town, presented by Go Life International, lit up the Mother City for 4 days, as visitors streamed into Sun Exhibits, GrandWest, to find out more about the rapidly growing cannabis industry.

The Cannabis Expo has fast become Africa’s gateway to the global cannabis industry, showcasing innovative products and businesses that serve and focus on all areas of cannabis business, from agriculture to healthcare to the lifestyle sectors.

The opening day of the expo set high energy and expectations for the rest of the weekend, as visitors streamed through the entrance in record numbers. In total over the 4 days in Cape Town, over 16,500 attendees visited The Cannabis Expo, more than the inaugural expo.

“The huge visitor turnout, coupled with the fact that the expo has over doubled in size and doubled the number of exhibitors since the first expo, shows how rapidly the industry is booming. The Cannabis Expo will now be on the calendar as the meeting point for this extremely exciting and innovative industry in each major city, every year.”
Silas Howarth, Director of The Cannabis Expo

Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health, the Honourable Minister Dr. Moyo, visited The Cannabis Expo to learn more about local legislation, products, extraction, and all that the industry has to offer.



“We are excited to be here in Cape Town. The community have been amazing in coming out in numbers to learn more about this fascinating industry. I am looking forward to future growth, and am proud of all you have and are still achieving here,”
The Honourable Minister Dr. Moyo, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health

The trade and consumer event is the ideal platform for people to engage with local and international experts and cannabis entrepreneurs, enabling everyone to explore this exciting and growing industry.

Next, The Cannabis Expo travels to Durban at Sibaya, 6 – 9 June 2019.
