South Africa’s cannabis events cancelled following public health and safety concerns. Here’s the biggest cancellations and postponements so far.
On Sunday evening, 15 March 2020, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a “national state of disaster” due to the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, and announced the “prohibition of gatherings of more than 100 people.”
In adherence to the government directive, The Cannabis Expo Cape Town (set to take place at GrandWest 19 – 22 March) has now been postponed, with a new date to be announced in due course.
“The safety of our exhibitors, staff and visitors to the expo is our absolute priority,” says expo director, Silas Howarth. “We respect the government’s decision, putting stringent measures in place to contain the spread of COVID-19, and as such have postponed the Cape Town event.”
Held annually in four cities across South Africa, with over 200 exhibitor stands and tens of thousands of visitors, The Cannabis Expo is the largest cannabis event on the continent.
The Cannabis Expo will evaluate the situation and developments, and will announce a new date for this important industry event in due course. Tickets and delegate passes that have already been purchased from Computicket will be valid for the new date, or refunded upon request.
We’ve been discussing the probability that D.Day would be cancelled for the last two weeks with our team.
Last night, our President banned gatherings of over 100 people which we hope all South Africans are going to take extremely seriously. D.Day 2020 has become a victim of #CoronaVirus #CoronaSA #Covid19SA and it is with a heavy heart that we cancel the event until further notice. After being in Europe for two weeks watching countries shut down, we know this is the only recourse our government has got.
Stay safe, wash your hands, don’t get breathed on, cough into your clothes, and please take everything the authorities tell you about the virus seriously. This is not a drill.
Any and ALL questions will be answered via the web contact form at:
All of you who have bought tickets will be contacted for a refund. Please be patient. As you can imagine, we are all dealing with this situation as best we can throughout South Africa.
All our love, The Fields Of Green For ALL team.
Good day to all our fellow supporter and truth seekers.
Due to yesterday’s SONA, we have decied to move the Global Cannabis March to 12 September 2020. This will give us further time to rally the troops and make headway with relevant officials to gain further traction. Globally the march is being moved, not just our land. This date also coincides close to the landmark ruling for the status of Cannaibs in SA back in 2018.
Keep our objective strong and keep pushing the agenda to the public. We will make our voices heard!!!
One love and blessings to all in this time of uncertainty.
