Vancouver Tickets ICBC Vancouver Tickets ICBC

The International Cannabis Business Conference is bringing its unparalleled combination of cannabis industry, policy, advocacy, and networking back to beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia later this month.

A VIP reception on September 15th, hosted by NextLeaf, will kick off the networking at ICBC Vancouver, as speakers, sponsors, and attendees gather at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. This will be a stellar opportunity for attendees to make connections with cannabis entrepreneurs and policymakers from all over the globe.

Lori Ajax, the first and only Chief of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control, will provide a keynote interview on September 16th. Lori Ajax literally has the biggest cannabis regulatory job on the planet. This is the first time that Chief Ajax will be speaking about cannabis regulations at a conference outside of the U.S. and it is sure to be very informative.

“I’m excited to be able to participate in the upcoming International Cannabis Business Conference. It’s been great to be a part of the California event for the past few years, and I’m really looking forward to learning more about Canada’s legal cannabis market and see if there are lessons to be learned for California’s cannabis industry.” Ajax said.

Ajax will be joined by 4-time NBA Champion John Salley who will also be speaking at the event. In order to be successful in the increasingly-crowded cannabis space entrepreneurs have to be creative, flexible, adaptable, and versatile. John Salley possesses all of those attributes and has been successfully putting them to work for decades, which is why the International Cannabis Business Conference is honored to have him as a guest speaker.

Additional conference topics will include:

  • Canadian cannabis regulations and policy
  • Regulatory models for edibles, topicals, and extracts
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Vetting investments with an eye on emerging international markets
  • Craft cannabis
  • Cannabis exports
  • Extraction science and technology
  • Strategic partnerships

Following the conference curriculum, the exclusive after-party, sponsored by Bhang and Indiva, will take place on a Pacific Yachts 105-foot, three-level luxury vessel. The yacht party will be DJ’d by the legend himself – DJ Muggs from Cypress Hill! Join us this September 15-16 for an industry event like no other.
