Southern Hemp Expo Announces New Venue, Dates
National trade show organizers and event producers We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA) and Colorado Hemp Company are accepting exhibitor reservations for the 3rd annual Southern Hemp Expo (SHE3) taking place Sept. 2-4, 2021.
New this year, the in-person event is relocating from Franklin, Tennessee, to Raleigh, North Carolina, where 250+ exhibitors and thousands of attendees will converge during three days of conferences, seminars, and workshops at the Raleigh Convention Center. SHE3 will deliver a robust lineup of industry experts and leaders to share new technologies and solutions in the marketplace and provide insight on hemp’s growth.
“We’re extremely grateful for the communities of Nashville and Franklin, TN, where we have held the past two Southern Hemp Expos,” said Morris Beegle, president and co-founder of We Are For Better Alternatives. “We saw a need for the hemp community to meet safely in-person, and the city of Raleigh expressed interest in fulfilling our goals to create a live, interactive event that will meet pandemic protocols for everyone who attends.”
The Southern Hemp Expo is the first cannabis-related company to be awarded a City of Raleigh and Wake County Business Development Fund Grant, dedicated to making a positive economic impact on the city and the county. Organizers are pleased to partner with the City of Raleigh and are looking forward to offering a new venue and space for exhibitors, sponsors and attendees.
“We’re honored the Raleigh community is providing significant support to further advance the conversation about hemp,” said Beegle. “Through their collaboration, SHE3 will continue to thrive and serve as a resource for farmers, suppliers, manufacturers, processors, brands, retailers, buyers, service providers, and more.”
For businesses and brands interested in exhibiting at the 3rd Annual Southern Hemp Expo, the opportunity to reserve booth space and secure sponsorship are now available. To apply, visit www.southernhempexpo.com/reservemyboothforshe3.
