The fourth annual Southern Hemp Expo (SHE4), the leading hemp industry supply-chain trade show and conference in the southeast, is returning 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,” Morris Beegle, trade show organizer and president of We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA), said. Southern Hemp Expo 3 was held in August 2021, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Bringing Together Unsurpassed Education & Networking
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 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.
Agricultural leaders will share their expertise in soil science, regenerative agriculture, carbon credits, harvesting, planting and decortication technology, and diversity and inclusion in hemp as well as USDA grants and opportunities. New this year will be a Smokable Hemp Flower Garden for all craft growers. Also this year, the Nashville Hemp Food & Beverage Fair + Music Festival will be showcasing the multiple uses of hemp in the food and beverage markets. It will be open to the public on Saturday, August 20, from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm.
