1. Future Cannabis Strategies Europe (March 23-24)
Have you ever wanted to go to London? Here’s your virtual opportunity. The Future Cannabis Strategies Europe is taking place in London, UK this year and is sure to be a well-attended virtual event bringing together business leaders from across the wider European Consumer-Facing Cannabis products category together with solution providers for 2 packed days of discussions and debates. These thought-provoking discussions will centre on how manufacturers can better understand the need for education surrounding cannabis in medical and consumer concepts, identify opportunities where cannabis/hemp could be used in existing products (like coffee for example!), review innovations in the industry, and more. While it is Europe-centric, it will also look at the future of cannabis through the lens of Canada, Australia, and the USA who are currently leading the cannabis market. This is bound to be an interesting cannabis conference not to miss!
