Gauteng Cannabis Expo Surfaces in Sandton as Industry Emerges from 18 Month Lockdown

Africa’s largest cannabis show is back!  Just over 18 months ago, Cannabis Expo CEO Silas Howarth and his team faced their worst nightmare – just a week before the Cape Town Cannabis Expo was set to fly, the government implemented a national State of Disaster and implemented the first Civid-Related lockdown.


Now the public space has shifted, and although there is still a high danger of Covid, the ease in restrictions has allowed the cannabis exhibition industry to surface in Sandton.


The Gauteng Cannabis Expo will run from Thursday 17 November to Sunday 21 November 2021 at the Sandton Convention Centre. The event will host a multitude of speakers on the Expo Stage with experts and industry leaders hosting presentations every half hour on cannabis-related topics that cover topics including health, agriculture, legislation and finance.

There are roughly 100 exhibitors that will be displaying their merchandise or services and the and the Expo will include a freedom festival, hosting DJ’s and live music, and a food market where visitors can browse and enjoy the latest in cannabis-infused and cannabis-inspired culinary delights.


This multifaceted event provides a platform for big cannabis business deals to be facilitated as well as giving visitors the opportunity to learn all there is to know about cannabis. Get clued up about the laws around cannabis, how to get a grower’s permit, what tools, lights and fertilisers are needed to grow the best crops, the wide range of health benefits of cannabis, the vast business opportunities the cannabis industry has to offer, and so much more.


Tickets cost R150 per person for one day, or R950 per person for a full pass to the convention. Buy tickets here.
