World Leadership in Cannabis

The Cannabis Capital Convention is the first cannabis conference in the Netherlands for investors and entrepreneurs – in the fall of 2019 we return once again.

In 2018, Cannabis Capital Convention (event report) hosted 300 delegates in The Eye Film Museum, Amsterdam. Through a series of enlightening presentations and discussions European entrepreneurs and investors caught a glimpse of what a cannabis infused future in Europe could look like. 

We were one of – if not the first – serious convention to openly discuss the possibilities legal recreational cannabis could offer European entrepreneurs and investors. One of the first presentations of the day from Matt Reid, an analyst from the world’s oldest investment bank – Berenberg – explained to a stunned audience they were “looking with interest at the recreational psychoactive cannabis market and in particular the potential development of THC infused beverages and the risk they pose to established alcohol players.” This eye opener set the tone for the day and laid any thoughts to rest that this was going to be just another cannabis event masquerading under the guise of “therapeutic medicine”.

In Europe, the cannabis market is literally growing. Multiple European countries have announced legislation and hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in the European cannabis industry. Yet we are still at least five years behind the US and Canada. Europe has benefitted from global developments, since the governments can follow the lead of other countries. Governments now comprehend the benefits that come with the legislation of cannabis, socially as well as financially.

This year we maintain our focus on North American brands and the lessons they have learnt but also showcase European companies to understand what they have to offer. We’re going to explore and learn how they have prospered despite operating in a legal grey zone and how they will compete and thrive in a global market as barriers tumble.

We’ll bring the knowledge of the North American cannabis investors and the seasoned veterans of the European cannabis market together in our Cannabis Capital Convention.
