World Cannabis Congress Announces Partnership with CannaTech

Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada (March 19, 2018) – The World Cannabis Congress is pleased to announce that it has partnered with CannaTech, Europe’s premier cannabis conference, to maximize its reach to the international cannabis community.

The World Cannabis Congress, presented by Civilized, is happening June 10-12, 2018 in Saint John, New Brunswick. The Congress is an exclusive, by invitation only event that will welcome 350 of the brightest minds and biggest influencers for two compelling days of expert talks, engaging panels, major industry announcements and unparalleled networking opportunities.    

The event will combine Civilized’s influence in North America and CannaTech’s reach in Europe, making it the ultimate global event. While CannaTech primarily focuses on the medical and scientific aspect of cannabis, the World Cannabis Congress will concentrate on business and policy. What they both have in common is the ultimate goal of fostering innovation, collaboration and facilitating conversations that will propel the global industry forward.

“Israel is leading the world in cannabis research and medical innovation, and Canada – more specifically, New Brunswick – is one of the world leaders in cannabis policy and economic development,” says CannaTech CEO Saul Kaye. “Together, we’re helping advance the global cannabis industry.”

“CannaTech is very influential in the international cannabis community, and we’re thrilled to be working alongside them on the World Cannabis Congress,” says Civilized Publisher, Derek Riedle. “We couldn’t ask for better partners to enrich the Congress with a global presence.”  

Derek Riedle led a panel on global cannabis industry models and trends, alongside key leaders from Canada and the United States in Tel-Aviv, Israel on March 19, 2018.

Registration for the World Cannabis Congress is now open, with a limited quantity of tickets available. To request an invitation or to learn more about the event, please visit
