Cannabiz in Cologne business must be fun
Cannabiz in Cologne! The International CannaBusiness® will be welcoming its guests under this motto for the first time in September 2004, since Cologne is the new market place of the hemp branch. Here, in the Palladium of the trade fair city Cologne, experts from the hemp branch will meet from September 24-26th 2004 for presenting themselves to an international public.

Success through professionalism
It took the pioneers of the hemp scene not even 10 years to advance themselves from not seriously taken outsiders to professional economic actors. Other than in the mid-90ies, the International CannaBusiness® is nowadays more and more perceived as an international forum of an innovative and worldwide networked branch. While the hemp branch was hardly welcome anywhere in its first years, it is even being courted now after eight successful trade fairs. A major cornerstone on the road to the hemp plant‘s rehabilitation – and a success that the Tri Tec GmbH as organizer of the International CannaBusiness® has achieved together with its exhibitors, partners, guests and friends, now going to adequately celebrate this by moving to Cologne.

New meeting point of the international hemp scene
Cologne, Germany‘s fourth largest city, is an international centre of trade fairs, the media and economy. More than 10 million people are living within a radius of 100 km around Cologne, making the city an important centre located near the Three Countries Corner. Cologne is looked upon as top adress for innovative, creative and alternative companies, for cultural and political projects, for small clubs and mega-events such as the Christopher Street Day or the SOMA Festival, for big research and also for smaller institutes. Besides the nova-Institute and the International Association for Cannabis as Medicine (IACM), Cologne is also home to the Hemp Demo Cologne www.hanfdemo.de which will take place simultaneously with the CannaBusiness®. Without a doubt, Cologne offers ideal surroundings for the 9th International CannaBusiness®.

Media City Cologne
Ever since organizing the International CannaBusiness® for the first time, the Tri Tec GmbH has been cultivating intensive press contacts, practising an exceptionally wide-ranging media work. We may remind you of the appearance of Emil Riechmann in the ARD morning TV-magazine and diverse radio reports which incited numerous people to spontaneously visit the hemp trade fair. Furthermore, countless articles have been featured in regional, nationwide and international newspapers and magazines, as well as in all prevalent hemp media. As a consequence, one can for sure expect that the already good relationship between Tri Tec GmbH and the Cologne media is going to become even more intensive – the TV studios of ARD, RTL, Sat.1, VIVA and VOX do not have to cover long distances anymore for visiting the International CannaBusiness®. In Cologne, there are also various private and public radio stations (amongst them, the largest German radio station, the WDR). Diverse newspapers and magazines – not to forget the grow! – have their editorial offices directly on the spot.

Culture and Night Life
For party people, there is the opportunity to combine their visit at the 9th International CannaBusiness® with an extensive expedition through the “Club and Party Town Cologne”. From techno and hip hop to motto, singles, after-work or gay parties as well as live concerts, practically everything is at your disposal. To those who like it calmer, we recommend one of the numerous cinemas and theatres. Also for art lovers, visiting Cologne is very worthwhile, because of its world-famous museums and unique galleries.
