Overview Program of CannaTrade 2023

The time has finally come: after being forced to take a 2 year break due to Coronavirus, the next CannaTrade will finally take place from May 20-22, 2022. This year, the conference program will take place on a smaller scale due to the limited period of time available for planning. We recommend that professional visitors attend the CB Expo – Cannabis Business Expo and conference in Zurich from September 10-11 where there will be a high-caliber and extensive conference program on offer.

Visitors can enjoy the following highlights and side events in addition to over 200 trade fair stands.


The podium discussion will take place on the stage and will be broadcast live on Radio Rabe.

The CannaSwissCup – Selection of the best Swiss Cannabis sorts

CannaSwissCup - Course of Action
Interested producers should register with various sorts latest until 30th of November > Producers

In January, the different sorts will be forwarded for analyses on the content of THC, CBD, Nicotine, Pesticide and Mycotoxine as well as for the Terpen-Analysis. Subsequently the VIP-Jury will select the best sorts - worthy to be included in the Jury-Boxes. The Boxes are available for all adults who are staying in Switzerland or Liechtenstein.

All data on the sorts involved will be made anonymous during the entire process. The results of the analyses, the naming of the sorts and their producers will be pronounced after the Awardshow by the Verein CannaSwissCup. The voting process will operate via the system of Seeticket.

The Jury Members will vote online until 21 May 2022, 16.00 at the latest. Get two free tickets for the CannaTrade by using your Ticket-Code (labelled on the Jury-Box) at On a first come first served basis!
