The 2017 International Cannabis Business Conference in Berlin helped launch legal cannabis in Germany, and we look forward to expanding the cannabis marketplace in Europe in 2018.
BERLIN, GERMANY | 12-13 April 2018
As the de facto capital of Europe, and one of the most progressive cities on the planet, Berlin is poised to be the European leader in cannabis business and drug policy reform. In early 2017, Germany pushed forward with progressive medical marijuana regulations, and German private companies will soon be cultivating cannabis that will be supplied to patients through pharmacies. The economic and social ramifications of these recent decisions are profound. Join us at the Berlin International Cannabis Business Conference and engross yourself in a vastly emerging market with endless potential.
