The International Cannabis Business Conference is joining forces with Spannabis, Europe’s top cannabis expo, to form a super-conference that begins March 14th in Barcelona, Spain. For more than fifteen years, Spannabis has been the world’s biggest cannabis trade show while the ICBC in just five years has become the world’s premier B2B cannabis networking event for entrepreneurs and investors, with attendees from over 50 countries.
“Feria del Cáñamo (Spannabis) has been in the cannabis sector for more than 16 years and is much more than just a fair. The Spanish cannabis industry has more potential every day, and is taking firm steps to improve that Spain’s laws. Spannabis organizers believe that the time is right to offer reliable information on the economic potential of the cannabis sector and the viability that Spain would have to become one of the key countries in Europe,” stated Carlos Yerbes Gonzalez, co-director of Spannabis.
“We needed to collaborate with a leading company in the cannabis business sector, with experience also in Europe, and ICBC has all the knowledge to be able to make such an event in Spain. We have no doubt that our combined event will be a success and many of our attendees will be grateful to have a B2B (business to business) event of this quality,” Gonzalez continued.
“Spannabis is not only the biggest Cannabis fair in Europe, but the biggest in the world The Spannabis brand name is iconic, and we are honored to be partnering with such a long-time and important institution,” stated Alex Rogers, Executive Producer of the International Cannabis Business Conference.
“Spannabis is the meeting point for the entire European cannabis scene. It is a first and foremost a consumer event, however, many folks who attend are also looking for a B2B element. The ICBC’s partnership with Spannabis fills this gap and satisfies a clear need for major cannabis industry players to meet, network, to progress and advance the industry as cannabis laws are liberalized in Spain and across the continent,” continued Rogers.
The movement to bring more freedom, jobs, and revenue to nations around the world is only picking up momentum as legalization spreads from state to state and nation to nation. With more and more U.S. states legalizing both adult-use and medical cannabis every year, there is more progress at the federal level than ever before. Germany’s landmark medical cannabis program is growing dramatically, and, of course, Canada is leading the way by fully legalizing cannabis on October 17th later this year.
The combined efforts of the International Cannabis Business Conference and Spannabis will only add to the worldwide political and cultural battle to end the failed and harmful policy of cannabis prohibition. Attendees will be engaged and engaged by this historic pairing. If you are in the cannabis industry or are thinking of joining, the ICBC-Spannabis superconference will be THE marijuana event of 2019 and should not be missed.
The ICBC Barcelona will be held on March 14, 2019, at the Auditori de Cornellà with an after-party at the iconic W Hotel. You can secure tickets now.
