The emerging legal cannabis industry in Europe is set for exponential growth in the coming years. Germany recently announced its adult-use cannabis legalization plan and several countries in Europe are expected to do the same soon.
In addition to adult-use reform, the legal medical cannabis industry is continuing to expand across Europe. The rise of adult-use legalization will obviously impact Europe’s medical cannabis industry to some extent, however, much is still unclear regarding how both sectors of the industry will operate alongside each other in the future.
The next three to five years in Europe will be pivotal for the emerging legal cannabis industry, and with it, the timing for entrepreneurs and investors trying to gain a meaningful footprint in the space.
Industry policies, rules, regulations, and other framework components that are being created and implemented during this crucial period will largely determine what the future of Europe’s cannabis industry looks like for decades to follow.
That is why it is so important for cannabis entrepreneurs, policymakers, and other leaders to network and learn from each other as much as they can right now. A great opportunity to do exactly that is coming to London on May 2-3, 2023, when Cannabis Europa’s flagship event comes to the Barbican Centre.
“We are ultimately trying to change society by bringing about acceptance and accessibility to cannabis in Europe,” stated Stephen Murphy, Co-Founder and CEO of Prohibition Partners at last year’s Cannabis Europe event. It’s a mission that remains true for this year’s event as well.
The venue for the event, the Barbican Centre, is a return to Cannabis Europa’s roots, with the location previously serving as the venue for the first-ever Cannabis Europa conference back in 2018. The event’s two-day agenda covers a range of topics. Below is a sampling of the event’s speakers. For a full list click this link:
