Speakers will share their knowledge on the CBD, Cannabinoids and Medicinal Cannabis industries, with an audience made up of the public, medical professionals and clinicians, as well as press and Politicians.
Organisers want to supply a unique insight into the industry and allow all interested parties to learn more about the science and regulation of the industry. It will also showcase the leading international brands, lobbying groups and advocates for the medical use of Cannabis and Cannabis derivatives.
Similarly to the Cannabis Europa convention, the event will see attendees from across Europe, looking to network and gain innovative insight into the industries. There has been increasing interest from European Government officials in the Cannabis industry, as it can offer a number of benefits to a countries health and economic systems.

The Expo offers a unique chance for anyone interested in the industry to build their knowledge and network. The ongoing conversation around Cannabis and its uses is becoming more diverse, and events like these aim to continue to remove the stigma associated with the industry.
