Canada, particularly Vancouver, British Columbia, has been at the forefront of progressive cannabis policies. The landslide election of the Liberal Party last year shook up the world, as the party, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, became the first political party voted into power with a pro-cannabis legalization platform. The Trudeau Administration has reaffirmed the government's intention to move forward with legalization, creating great opportunities for the cannabis industry and community.
The International Cannabis Business Conference, with successful, sold-out events in San Francisco, California and Portland, Oregon, is excited to venture further north into the great city of Vancouver. With Berlin, Germany, already scheduled for April 11-12, 2017, it is clear that the ICBC is THE international cannabis event for anyone in the cannabis industry or thinking of joining the industry.
Growers, processors, retailers, activists, owners of ancillary businesses and those looking to learn more about the cannabis industry can greatly benefit from the ICBC. The ICBC always garners a tremendous amount of media attention as we are a unique event that combines business, politics, activism and culture. We can expect our Vancouver event to earn extensive media attention due to the timely nature of the event and the fact that our speakers and partners are always newsworthy and top-notch.
Unlike other industry events, our vendor spots are very limited, allowing attendees and vendors to interact closely throughout the event. This is not an expo where you are competing with a hundred or more other exhibitors; you will have an opportunity to showcase your business directly to attendees. With Canada helping lead the way and the historic nature of this event, this is not the marijuana conference to miss.
For the full ICBC experience, All-Inclusive tickets include event tickets and entry to our exclusive VIP Reception, sponsored by Leafly and Tilray.
