Switzerland has a long history as a drug policy pioneer and even allowed “grey market” cannabis sales in recent history thanks to a loophole in the Swiss Narcotics Act. While that loophole has been closed, the Swiss government has legalized the production and sale of high-CBD cannabis and products that don’t exceed 1% THC. With a top federal health commission calling on Switzerland to end prohibition and regulate cannabis commerce, this is the perfect time to learn the latest, network with top investors and entrepreneurs, and have some fun celebrating the cannabis culture at the International Cannabis Business Conference Zurich and CannaTrade.
The ICBC Zurich VIP reception kicks off the festivities at the beautiful Atlantis Hotel on May 15th, with the informative conference program, also at the Atlantis, held the following day. The ICBC after party will keep the good times rolling at the Space Monkey with a performance from DJ Leeroy, most famously known as a member of prodigy. The Atlantis Hotel is truly a sight to behold, with amazing luxury accomodations.
Former United States Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, the Republican architect of the most important positive cannabis policy legislation ever passed by the U.S., will keynote ICBC Zurich, discussing his past history with cannabis politics and his present and future in the industry. Following Rohrabacher are panels that include: the Trajectory of the Swiss Market, CBD in Switzerland, an International Regulatory Overview, International Investment, Investment and Capital Markets, and much more.
Following ICBC Zurich will be CannaTrade, from May 17th-19th, Europe’s oldest hemp fair. CannaTrade will host a business-centric event on the 17th, with engaging panels, booths, and cannabis competitions all weekend. Everyone that purchases a ticket to ICBC Zurich also gets free tickets to CannaTrade. With special partnerships with CannaTrade and Spannabis, the ICBC is so happy and humbled to work with European pioneers to bring the global cannabis community together. Hope to see you in Zurich!
