Using the power of technology, we connect businesses to accurate information on the global industry, connect with new partners and help them make faster, smarter decisions.
Our vision is for a legal cannabis industry where the abundant economic, societal and health beneﬁts of the plant can be realised around the world.
The beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 saw part of Prohibition Partners’ events offering quickly pivot – from physical, in-person conferences, to virtual events.
We took our industry-leading conferences online, delivering agenda-setting content, targeted virtual networking and engaging, experiential digital experiences. In June 2020, we hosted the most ambitious online cannabis conference that the global cannabis industry had ever experienced. In May 2021, we did it all again.
During these two large scale virtual conferences – attended by over 2,000 influential industry stakeholders from all over the world – we hosted over 70 engaging panels, debates and talks with a diverse lineup of over 300 academic, business and celebrity speakers.
The inaugural Cannabis Europa conference took place on 22 May 2018 at the Barbican in London. Within a month, the Home Office acknowledged the medical benefits of cannabis and reviewed their stance on its use as medicine, beginning a path towards patient access.
Since then, Cannabis Europa has pushed things forward to shape the future of cannabis, hosting industry-leading conferences in: Paris (2019), London (2019), Toronto (2019), New York (2019), Madrid (2020), and London (2021). In the process, Cannabis Europa has grown to become the leading international cannabis conference focused on the European market.
Cannabis Europa conferences connect influential leaders in science, policy and business, helping to build a responsible and effective European cannabis industry that nurtures innovation, access and growth. Our events are a catalyst for political change, and a platform for cannabis-related businesses to connect with mainstream brands.
