Capital of the Czech Republic
From 11th till the 13th of November, the 7th edition of Cannafest took place in the beautiful city Prague.
Cannafest is a large cannabis trade event that has over 200 exhibitors, from over 25 countries. Over three days it has around 18.000 visitors from all over the world.
Next year (2017) Amsterdam Genetics wants to be part of the fair, so we decided to go and see what we could do best to promote our company and connected coffeeshops in Czech!
Výstaviště Praha Holešovice
We flew into Prague on the 12th and headed straight towards Výstaviště Praha Holešovice, where Cannafest 2016 was being held. As soon as we entered the trade fair you could see how busy things was already. The Czech Republic had turned out in full strength to show it’s support for the international cannabis community!
They had divided the Prague Exhibition Grounds into 4 area’s full with beautiful stands. World famous companies such as Canna and Barney’s Farm really had made an effort to stand out from the crowds. Everything was available to try, taste or sample. Odour proof bags, merchandise, hemp clothing, speakers and vaporisers to complete grow your own cannabis kits was displayed for visitors. During the event we met a lot of fellow Dutch colleagues from the Cannabis Industry. As well as connecting with a lot of interesting people from the business as well. It was so inspiring to see the support there was for Cannabis in Prague. During the day we heard some great success stories from people using CBD Oil. The entire day was filled with people smiling, smoking and enjoying the whole event from kids to grandparents!
Our brand is recognised around the world!
For the event we had some bespoke Amsterdam Genetics jackets designed which really helped with getting us noticed. Many of the visitors at the event even commented as we walked around how much they enjoyed our products while visiting Amsterdam. Our connection with world famous Coffeeshops such as the Boerejongens and the Dampkring helps enforce the high standards of our products.
After the event that night we joined some of our fellow colleagues from around Holland for dinner. Along with us that evening was also some Czech friends who run a social club near Barcelona.
Day Two – Cannafest 2016
The last day of the event was not quiet as busy as the Saturday which gave us plenty of chance to spend the day touring the CBD exhibitors. As Amsterdam Genetics is about to release it’s own premium range of CBD Oil we thought this a great chance to get up close and personal with some of our competition. What we was pleased to find is that although there are a wide range of products available. None of the people on the stands appeared as knowledgeable about their products as Amsterdam Genetics is about it’s own range of CBD Oil. It was a pleasure to find out our investment in research had paid off.
Cannafest is such a big event, almost every cannabis company is there, Prague is beautiful.. We will definitely be back for 2017.
Let’s join up forces with our Amsterdam Collegues from the Cannabis business and see you in 2017.
