Emerald Triangle, Northern California / Warwickshire, United Kingdom – May 15, 2019 – Today, annual cannabis/hemp lifestyle and trade events, Product Earth Expo-Fest (UK) and The Emerald Cup (USA) announced a new strategic alliance between the two festivals connecting the UK to some of the finest brands from the Emerald Triangle. The partnership kicks-off August 23-25 at the National Agricultural & Exhibition Centre with 2019’s iteration of Product Earth Expo-Fest over Britain’s August Bank Holiday Weekend.

“With the expansion of the global cannabis and hemp movements, we wanted to partner-up with a group that shared the Emerald Cup’s ethos of caring for the earth and educating the word to the healing powers of the cannabis plant” said Emerald Cup founder Tim Blake. “Product Earth Expo is that event in Europe and we are thrilled to be working with them both at their event in August and the Cup this December in California.”


Product Earth Expo-Fest founder James Walton added; “Our new relationship with the Emerald Cup was born out of a shared goal to showcase the future of farming both in Britain and around the world. Having worked in the UK Hemp, CBD and cannabis sectors for over 20-years, I felt compelled to organize an exhibition to support this emerging market with a unique concept that combines my deep love of music with knowledge and passion for this amazing plant. Turns out, Tim and the Emerald Cup are doing the same in the U.S. so why not join forces”.

Working in partnership with the British Hemp Association, Product Earth Expo-Fest takes place annually and is open to both the trade and public. It is the only Hemp, CBD, and Cannabis event that highlights the complete ecosystem of the plant. From agricultural, industrial, medical, and recreational, to production, wholesale and retail, it is the leading UK showcase of this rapidly evolving, multi-billion-pound industry.

Besides sharing an ethos with Product Earth Expo-Fest, The Emerald Cup will be hosting award winning breeders and legends from California and the U.S., plus guest speakers, best regenerative farming techniques, and of course, the world-renowned Tim Blake and his daughter Taylor Blake will be part of the celebration.

Hosting Q&A panels, workshops and demonstrations, leading experts will be on hand to provide advice, education and guidance covering:
