Alchimia sponsors your high
One of the activities that Expogrow has welcomed with open arms has been the surprise that Alchimia had for all the visitors of the fair. We had a spectacular captive balloon with our company logo so anyone could ride it and enjoy the trip and the splendid views from about 15 metres high.
To ride the balloon, the visitors had to find six different Alchimia products that we left in six different stands throughout the fair. These products were: one Alchimia ballast by Lumi, one Alchimia HPS lamp, a Clip fan, an in-line air extractor, a set of Alchimia light hangers and one Alchinet mesh. Everyone who finded these six products was allowed to ride the ballooon and entered the draw for a complete drying kit with grow tent.
We could also enjoy the balloon during the concerts at night, what created a spectacular atmosphere for all visitors of the Ficoba fairground.
The Alchimia team would like to congratulate and thank all participants and visitors for their professionality, fellowship and passion for cannabis, who have made Expogrow to become such an interesting and important event, a true reference in the sector.
See you next year in Irun!
