ANNOUNCEMENT: The International Cannabis Conference returns to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, this September 15th-16th
(July 29, 2019) With Canada nearing the one-year anniversary of cannabis commerce and the release of rules allowing the sale of edibles, concentrates, and extracts later this year, the timing is perfect for the International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC) to return to beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia this September 15-16. The ICBC will once again bring its trademark blend of business, politics, and culture to provide the latest industry information, as well as the world’s best networking opportunities for entrepreneurs, investors, and advocates. The ICBC kicks off the networking with a VIP reception on September 15th, while the educational program will run on the 16th. The networking will continue into the evening at the exclusive ICBC after-party, featuring Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs performing on a 105-foot, three level luxury yacht that will be docked at the Westin Bayshore Hotel, the site of this year’s conference.
After a European tour that included sold-out events in Barcelona, Berlin, and Zurich, the producers of the ICBC are excited to return to North America and check in on Vancouver, one of the pioneering cannabis-friendly cities of the world. “Canada helped bring cannabis into the mainstream by becoming the first G7 nation to legalize cannabis commerce, making itself an influential international leader,” says Alex Rogers, Executive Producer of the ICBC. “Canada has gotten off to a head start, but the rest of the world is catching up. It is imperative to learn the latest crucial information and to create the partnerships that will help you thrive. We are excited to bring top experts, investors, and entrepreneurs together to help attendees take their businesses to the next level.”
The Vancouver ICBC will be MC’d by renowned cannabis comic Ngaio Bealum, host of Netflix’s Cooking on High, and speakers include: Pasha Brand’s Jamie Shaw; Eden Labs’ AC Braddock; Bhang’s Jamie Pearson; Boveda’s Lance Lambert; 3C’s Nic Easley; Xebra Brand’s Todd Dalotto; SHO Companies’ Vincent D’Accolti; and attorneys John Conroy, Robert Laurie, Tom Zuber, and Charles Feldmann. Conference topics will cover: Local Vancouver and B.C. regulations; regulations regarding edibles, topicals, concentrates, and extracts; mergers and acquisitions; domestic investments; going public; succeeding as a craft cannabis company; exporting internationally; extraction science and technology; and how to best develop strategic partnerships.
