ABOUT THE EVENT

GCI Europe brings together leaders, like you, at the forefront of cannabis. Our unique format enables you to customise an agenda, specific to your needs - you’ll be able to develop strong relationships with leaders across the value-chain, including: policy makers; researchers; LPs; CBD brands; retailers; distributors; labs; clinicians; scientists; service providers; and investors.
The home of networking for innovators at the heart of the European Cannabis Market




GCI Europe hosts two co-located conferences as well as interactive breakout streams
 
Disruptive forces are changing the world as we know it for the better, presenting a plethora of opportunities for innovators who like to push the boundaries. Of course, the European cannabis infrastructure is still developing, and as such, provides a multitude of cross-border regulatory challenges that we’re all facing daily. But with challenges, come opportunities.
 



Medicine, Research & Science


Bringing together the greatest minds in the space - researchers, clinicians, academics and pharma leaders come together from institutions globally to discuss the future of medical cannabis and cannabis derived treatment. All focused on the same goal, our experts will share exclusive insights and groundbreaking developments with the GCI Community.
 



Winning Business Strategies


Retailers and distributors can’t get enough of CBD products, however to conquer the European markets much more need be considered. From product launches to marketing & branding, navigating regulations to remaining compliant, you’ll be able to uncover key strategies to future-proof your growth in Europe from our faculty of industry specialists.
 



Interactive Breakout Streams
 
Dedicated streams focus on Key Canna Economies in Europe, Ancillary Services and Cannabis & Hemp Cultivation. Learn about the current and future regulatory, political, medical, investment and cultural landscape of 6 key countries (as told by expert Conversation Leaders from each region) and/or discover the best strategies to optimize your cultivation operation to service the European Markets.
