The fundamental B2B building blocks that companies need to succeed in the cannabis industry.


Our influential series of B2B conferences and expos bridge the gap between cannabis and the mainstream. They provide the platform for cannabis businesses, brands, investors and policymakers to connect, get deals done and build ongoing commercial relationships. These pivotal events are attended by thousands of delegates from over 50 countries annually.


Our reliable and credible data on commercial opportunities, market size and the regulatory environment in key cannabis markets globally provides our 300,000 monthly readers with actionable business insights. This global community also trusts our respected range of digital media titles to keep them informed on the latest industry developments through a variety of multimedia content.


Through technology, we’re removing many of the barriers preventing exponential growth for Europe’s cannabis industry and the businesses that operate within it. We’re powering cannabis commerce by providing a trusted space where buyers can make safe and informed purchases, and sellers can distinguish and grow their business. A space where product quality is obvious and payments are painless.
