On Sunday evening, 15 March 2020, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a “national state of disaster” due to the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, and announced the “prohibition of gatherings of more than 100 people.”

In adherence to the government directive, The Cannabis Expo Cape Town (set to take place at GrandWest 19 – 22 March) has now been postponed, with a new date to be announced in due course.

 “The safety of our exhibitors, staff and visitors to the expo is our absolute priority,” says expo director, Silas Howarth. “We respect the government’s decision, putting stringent measures in place to contain the spread of COVID-19, and as such have postponed the Cape Town event.”

Held annually in four cities across South Africa, with over 200 exhibitor stands and tens of thousands of visitors, The Cannabis Expo is the largest cannabis event on the continent.

The Cannabis Expo will evaluate the situation and developments, and will announce a new date for this important industry event in due course. Tickets and delegate passes that have already been purchased from Computicket will be valid for the new date, or refunded upon request.
