The International Cannabis Business Conference Is Coming Back To Barcelona

Barcelona Spain

BARCELONA, Spain (December 27, 2021) – The International Cannabis Business Conference is the leading cannabis B2B (business to business) event series on the planet, with previous conferences occurring in several countries on multiple continents. The event series is owned and operated by cannabis advocates that believe in celebrating cannabis culture, in addition to providing world-class cannabis industry education and networking opportunities.

The rich cannabis history and culture in Barcelona, Spain make it the perfect backdrop for the next International Cannabis Business Conference being held on March 10, 2022. The conference is co-sponsored by Bhang Inc and Grow Glide. The International Cannabis Business Conference has once again partnered with Spannabis, Europe’s top cannabis expo, to form another superconference that is a must-attend for anyone that is serious about succeeding in the emerging cannabis industry. At the conclusion of the superconference, the International Cannabis Business Conference will host one of its world-famous after-parties. This year’s after-party will be sponsored by Cansativa.

“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 event of this quality.” Spannabis organizers stated.

Spannabis organizers went on to say, “Feria del Cáñamo (Spannabis) has been in the cannabis sector for more than 18 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 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.”

Spannabis previously teamed up with the International Cannabis Business Conference in 2019 to form a superconference, and the collaboration was a tremendous success. The 2022 superconference will be bigger and better than ever, with the collaboration event being the largest of its type in Spain.

“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,” states Alex Rogers, Executive Producer of the International Cannabis Business Conference.

“Spannabis is the meeting point for the entire European cannabis scene. It is 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, and to progress and advance the industry as cannabis laws are liberalized in Spain and across the continent.” Rogers said.

This year’s International Cannabis Business Conference event in Barcelona will feature a one-on-one fireside chat with acclaimed entertainer Jim Belushi. Jim Belushi is a man of many talents – actor, singer, comedian, dancer, and now a legal cannabis farmer. Join Jim Belushi and journalist Micha Knodt as they have a one-on-one discussion about Belushi’s career, cannabis advocacy, and his current cannabis industry endeavors via Belushi’s Farm and its famous signature brands. Belushi and Knodt will also discuss Belushi’s new hit Discovery Channel cannabis reality show ‘Growing Belushi’.
