48 hours away from starting, the 17th edition of Spannabis, one of the world’s largest cannabis trade shows, has been forced to postpone its 2020 event in Barcelona, Spain.

“As you may know, this morning, the President of the Generalitat of Catalunya [have] announced extraordinary measures to respond to Covid-19 coronavirus disease,” Spannabis explains in a release.

“Much to our regret, gatherings of more than 1,000 people at indoor or outdoor events have been banned, in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus in Catalonia.”


Spannabis will now be postponed until later this year, in the Fall.

“We have tried as hard as possible to hold Spannabis normally, but under these circumstances, we have no alternative.”
