HEMPATIA, the first hemp fair in Ticino. New dates for the first edition. 

From 4th - 6th September, Ril Eventi will host the first ever hemp fair held in Ticino, the Italian region of Switzerland.


Hempatia was originally scheduled for the second half of March, but following the escalation of the national and international situation, in agreement with the Municipality of Lugano, extraordinary actions of the Confederation, the event is being postponed until September 2020.


Hempatia, entirely dedicated to the world of hemp, will be held in the Lugano Exhibition Center and will occupy an area of over 3,000 square meters.

The purpose of Hempatia is to offer to the general public and operators all the novelties of this universe.

The exhibitors will present the entire chain, from cultivation to transformation and from distribution to retail, giving emphasis to industrial use and wellness. T


he economics and misinformation have given hemp a bad name for many years, obscuring its real benefits and positive properties. Textiles, food, pharmaceuticals, green building and cosmetics industries have now rediscovered the various benefits that perfectly combine the economics with environmental protection.


The main intention of Hempatia is to put together companies and associations that work with, promote and support hemp with the general public and at the same time with buyers in a professional and dynamic context.

Many Ticino Region companies will attend Hempatia and they will be able to present how the hemp market is a tangible reality, irrespective of our attitudes.

We are not only business-focused, but also have a wealth of information for all.


Several internationally renowned speakers will be present with seminars and conferences. Medical, industrial context and international markets will be some of the topics. A laboratory zone will be available for kids, a space will be dedicated to bio-food and entertainment events will complete the inaugural staging of this international fair.


Hempatia will be held from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th September.


Admission fee.
