The Fair will take place on the coming 11, 12 and 13 of September at the Ficoba Fairground, in Irun, just like previous editions. Expogrow has earned the fame of being one of the most important and original events in the sector.
The numbers registered during last year's edition are close to 17.000 visitors during the 3 days; for this year, more visitors and french professionals are expected, thus confirming the importance of this event as the meeting point for the basque-french community.
This year, tickets cost 12? for 1 day, 20? for two days and 25? for the whole event, 3 days. It is obvious that these guys want us to stay there and have fun together...what else can we ask for?
People will have available a space of 5.000m2 indoors and 7.000m2 outdoors, so people from all over the globe will be able to meet and enjoy the event. The 4th International Social Hemp Forum will also take place, gathering personalities from all the world and, for the first time, sponsored by the Fundació Alchimia Solidària (Alchimia's Solidarity Foundation).
