The International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC) was founded in 2014 and immediately established itself as the preeminent industry event for those in the cannabis industry, or thinking of joining. With speakers, panelists, and introducers that have included a who’s who of industry entrepreneurs & investors, a bipartisan contingent of members of Congress, a former U.S. cabinet member, cannabis icons, and more, the ICBC brings together business, politics, and culture unlike any other conference. If you are seeking investors, partners, vendors, customers, or just wanting to learn the latest, the ICBC is the business-to-business (B2B) cannabis event for you.
The first ICBC was in Portland, Oregon, before the state became the 3rd to legalize in the United States in 2014. Following, Portland, the ICBC quickly became the dominant cannabis business conference on North America’s West Coast, with sold-out ICBCs in San Francisco, California, and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, before California or Canada legalized cannabis commerce.
In 2017, the ICBC produced its first event in Berlin, before Germany even implemented its medical cannabis program. Berlin emerged as not only the biggest ICBC, but also the largest B2B cannabis conference in all of Europe. Each year, ICBC Berlin has grown to include more people and vendors, representing over 60 nations! The amazing, unprecedented success of ICBC Berlin led to two more European events: Barcelona, Spain, in a team-up with Spannabis, and Zurich, Switzerland, a collaboration with CannaTrade.
The international cannabis industry continues to grow exponentially and the ICBC is pleased to grow right alongside this global movement to create more revenue, jobs, and freedom. Join us as we do our part to help bold, pioneering entrepreneurs and investors nation by nation.
