Cannabis Vexpo kicks off with 1 000 participants

Africa’s first online cannabis expo attracted over 1000 participants on day one of the three-day event.

Organizers say they got the “largest number of unique visitors and exhibitors to attend an African related virtual cannabis event “ and expect visitor numbers to double each day going forward. Vexpo runs until Saturday 28 November.

Opening the live stream presentations was a passionate talk by Dr. Ahmed Jamaloodeen on mass collaboration in the cannabis industry, with presentations throughout the day quickly shifting through topics and panel discussions on investing and moving toward more inclusive regulations.

“This is the first time that anything of this scale in the African cannabis industry has been hosted, and we are really happy with what the exhibitors, key speakers and our team have achieved.” says virtual expo director Silas Howarth. “

Our first day was a good learning curve and a great launch. We have established a fantastic platform and we are looking forward the next two days of the event”.
