NASHVILLE, TN (May 31, 2022) – Southern Hemp Expo (SHE4), the leading hemp industry supply-chain trade show and conference in the southeastern United States, announces a full schedule of networking, business, educational and entertainment events at the newly renovated Nashville Fairgrounds August 18-20, 2022.

Earlybird Discount Tickets are available NOW for the event, which is open to the public on Saturday, August 20.

SHE4 returns to Music City, USA to bring together top leaders and reach the public with the hopeful message of opportunity in hemp, organizers said.

SHE4 offers two days of interaction with industry leaders and agronomic researchers, featuring two conferences and two days of an Experience Hemp exhibition hall and networking events with local music and hemp-based foods and beverages to sample.

“Four years after industrial hemp was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill, we are seeing our industry expand from a focus on wellness and cannabinoids to the multiple industrial uses of hemp including textiles, building materials, bioplastics, paper and packaging, biofuel and superfoods,” said Morris Beegle, Southern Hemp Expo organizer and president and founder of We Are for Better Alternatives (WAFBA). 

“This year SHE4 is offering more business opportunities, more education opportunities and more networking opportunities than ever before,” Beegle added. “New this year, SHE features a special focus on smokable hemp flower companies and a chance for the public to explore hemp superfoods and beverages while listening to Nashville’s famous music.”
