Dates TBC | Athens, Helexpo Maroussi


Why Greece?

“We see being in Greece as a springboard to the rest of Europe because of its location. They have a stable political situation, an economy ripe for a new industry and it’s a natural for cultivation” – Jay McMillan, VP Strategic Business Development, Hexo Corp

Europe is anticipated to have the largest legal cannabis market in the world by 2024, estimated to be worth $39.1 billion – 57% of this figure is expected to come from the strong medicinal market. 

In March 2018, policymakers in Greece approved the farming and processing of medical cannabis. With its ideal climate and agricultural expertise, Greece is aspiring to become a prominent supplier of medical cannabis and cannabis derivatives throughout the EU. 

Athens’ location is ideal for companies looking to break into the European market and will bridge the emerging Asian markets with the rest of the world.

“Greece is a pioneer … it’s one of the few countries that offers the opportunity to export, and the location is great: a pathway to Europe and the Middle East,”James Ickes, President, DevCann

Helexpo Maroussi

A uniquely designed building with contemporary aesthetics, Helexpo Maroussi provides its visitors with flexibility and comfort. 

It is the first Exhibition Centre in Attica designed for exhibition and conference use and its opening laid new foundations in the market for services, organisation, facilities, etc. It first opened its gates in March 2000. It functioned as the Main Press Centre of the 2004 Olympics and it has hosted a number of Exhibitions, Conferences and other events since 2005.


Civitel Hotel

Close enough to the center of Athens yet just outside of all the hustle and bustle, the Civitel Olympic is a first-class property in Maroussi, the heart of Athens’ northern upscale business district. The area is home to many prestigious companies, trendy shopping centers, fine private hospitals and easy access to the Attica airport road.

Located right across from the 2004 Olympic Stadium, the Civitel Olympic lies on the prestigious Kifissias Avenue that offers quick access to Downtown Athens and to the upscale areas of Maroussi and Kifissia. The northern region also boasts many conference and exhibition centers that make the property an ideal destination for business travelers, as well as many fine-dining restaurants, museums and attractions.

The hotel is in walking distance to several exhibition venues and shopping malls, providing a myriad of activities to choose from. Highly recommended is the Golden Hall for luxury shopping and midday dining or a coffee break, located barely within a five-minutes’ walk.
