Written by Alexandra Hicks

If you’re going to be anywhere near Zurich, Switzerland mid-May, consider making a visit to CannaTrade, Europe’s oldest cannabis trade fair!

CannaTrade’s history dates back almost two decades to 2001, when the very first international cannabis trade fair was presented in the Swiss city of Bern. This event followed the “Swiss Hemp Days” of 1999 and 2000. The following editions of CannaTrade, in 2008 and 2009, were held in the city of Basel, then, until 2016, it took place very other year in the Stadthalle Dietikon / Zurich. For the last two years, it has been conducted annually in Hall 622 in Zurich-Oerilkon.
