The Attitude Seedbank were at the Product Earth Expo in Peterborough last weekend on the date of 27th – 28th June. It has been a very long time since the last Hemp Fair was held in the UK, in fact it has been 5 years since one has been held, and we think the organisers at Product Earth definitely bought it back with a bang!
Product Earth Expo is dedicated to bring the best Hemp and smoking related products to the UK from all over the world. It was a creative showcase for companies involved with helping the planet as well as ourselves, industry pioneers, product innovators and manufacturers, wholesalers and experts from the world of Hemp was exhibiting and promoting their amazing products and the industry. Many well known Seed Companies were there like our friends Pure Sativa, Green House Seeds, Humboldt Seed Organization, Dinafem Seeds, Sweet Seeds, Dank Genetics and many more!
The event was held in the exhibition centre at the East of England Showground, where the main hall was used to accommodate us exhibitors ensuring that all of our products and stands were clearly visible. Seminars were hosted throughout both of the days to educate visitors on the history of industrial hemp and its many uses. There was plenty of sampling happening so there was lots of freebies to collect, especially the free popcorn we were giving away! and not forgetting our huge range of offers and promotions we were giving away to many of the visitors. Our dart board seemed of been our main attraction at our stand, where many people won amazing prizes with their brilliant scores!
It was an amazing chance to meet everyone from the other companies and visitors to relate to each other and to share the same passion for the Hemp Industry. Everyone was so friendly with a permanent smile on their face, a smile was definitely on our faces when we went outside to the purpose built “village” area with a main stage for music and saw the amazing open top bus! It was covered in company logos with the honour of having our logo on aswell, of which was placed everywhere throughout the arena, we couldn’t be more proud and thankful for. Each muscian that played did amazingly well and certainly got the crowd going with some reggae and drum and bass mixed tunes, the crowd was already warmed up by the set from Mad Professor and the headliner Zion Train owned the stage.
The event was organised tremendously well with “professional” written all over it, everyone that came to the show definitely owe a thank to those guys and we do too guys so thank you so much! All in all it was a chilled out event with a warm and friendly vibe, thank you to everyone that took part in the show and that visited it, without everyone the show wouldn’t go on. Big respect to Richard and James who took a big risk to put this show together especially in the UK, well done lads, lets hope to see you all next year!
