international cannabis event
The CanEx Jamaica Business Conference and Expo is an annual business-to-business (B2B) event that brings together top cannabis industry experts from the U.S., Canada, South and Central America, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean.
Held for the first time in 2016, CanEx Jamaica is responsible for helping numerous businesses create new strategic partnerships. Through world-class speakers and panelists, CanEx Jamaica provides insight into the global direction of the industry and features a mix of high-level discourse and practical opportunity led by global experts with real-life application in the industry.
CanEx Jamaica’s mission is to help establish Jamaica’s place on the international stage while giving entrepreneurs and investors around the world a place to nurture business opportunities. While relationships and strategic partnerships made at CanEx have played an integral role in developing and advancing the local discussion regarding cannabis, the conference now offers a platform for a global conversation, located in the Caribbean.
Vicente Fox, 2018 keynote speaker and former president of Mexico, said: “The cannabis industry offers tremendous economic, health and social benefits in Mexico as in other markets around the world. I welcome the opportunity to share, network and advocate for its continued progress at CanEx Jamaica. The island and this conference offer a powerful platform to push the medical and legal cannabis movement and that is something I fully support.”
Montel Williams, keynote speaker at the 2017 and 2018 CanEx Jamaica conferences, said: “I am excited to participate in CanEx Jamaica because it’s a unique opportunity to gather so many leaders from the international cannabis industry in a place that is so important to cannabis’ history.”
Discussing opportunities for investment, medical advances and uses, as well as the business, legal and regulatory landscape, the conference features keynote addresses, panel discussions, presentations and exhibitions by:
- Investors, Financiers and Business Executives
- Industry Advocates, Policy Makers and Legal Experts
- Farmers, Cultivators and Processors
- Researchers, Physicians and Other Medical Practitioners
While CanEx Jamaica has played a pivotal role in elevating the discussion from a business and industry perspective in Jamaica, the conference continues to expand to provide a platform for an increasingly global conversation. Jamaica has played an important role in the history of cannabis – a role that will evolve as changing regulations are expected to bring substantial benefits to both local and international cannabis companies.
