NASHVILLE, TN (April 12, 2022) — The fourth annual Southern Hemp Expo (SHE4), the leading hemp industry supply-chain trade show and conference in the southeast, returns to Nashville August 18-20, 2022, to bring together hemp leaders in business, innovation, soil and agriculture.
“This year, as we move into a post-pandemic world and the hemp industry evolves from a cannabinoid-driven industry to a fiber, grain and cannabinoid industry, we are excited to move the event back to the newly constructed facilities at The Fairgrounds Nashville,” said Morris Beegle, trade show organizer and president of We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA). Southern Hemp Expo 3 was held in August 2021, in Raleigh, NC.
Nashville is where Southern Hemp Expo began in 2018 and the renovated and updated Fairgrounds are the perfect post-pandemic location for the trade show’s more than 175 exhibitor booths and 60+ industry speakers on two stages.
Exhibitor and sponsor opportunities are available now to showcase businesses among hemp industry leaders and entrepreneurs in medicinal/wellness, smokable flower, textiles, nonwovens, building materials, automotive, food and fuel, paper, bioplastics, biochar and more.
