About 2019 Carolina Hemp & CBD Expo

The 2019 Carolina Hemp & CBD Expo will be held at Suffolk Punch, one of Charlotte's newest urban landscapes. Melding art and science to inspire thought and challenge expectations, Suffolk Punch curates libations, food, and products for those who understand the value of craft and embrace new experiences.

The professional environment coupled with the opportunity for both education and enjoyment at our March event has exceeded many a visitor's expectations and we are looking forward to delivering an even bigger and better experience for our North Carolina, South Carolina and surrounding area guests.

This collaborative cannabis conference is an innovative and comprehensive forum dedicated primarily to Hemp & CBD business operations, globally.

The 2019 Carolina Hemp & CBD Expo will bring an international focus to the impact of cannabis around the world. Happening in Charlotte, this event is a forum for entrepreneurs in the Carolina's and surrounding areas, seeking business success from this dynamic industry.

This is a first-year event, focusing solely on the newly-emerging Hemp & CBD market. We will welcome cannabis industry leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs and newcomers to discuss best practices.
