Schedule released for Sydney medical cannabis conference

CannaTech Sydney, believed to be Australia’s first ever medical cannabis summit, will take place from 28–30 October 2018 at Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf, overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and city skyline.

An initiative of iCAN: Israel-Cannabis, CannaTech has a global focus that offers senior industry leaders, medical and scientific experts, and new ventures the platform to come together, drive innovation, form partnerships and promote knowledge exchange. CannaTech Sydney will be looking to bring together industry leaders from Australia and around the world known for their significant and groundbreaking contributions to the global medical cannabis market in all fields.

The summit will cover the most current industry topics — including agtech and innovation, business and finance, policy and regulation, science and medicine — with human interest stories an important component of the program. A special business-focused symposium will take place on 28 October.

“Australia is a key and growing player in the exploding cannabis field,” said Saul Kaye, founder and CEO of iCAN:Israel-Cannabis. “Many Australian cannabis companies are on the cutting edge of the market and we are thrilled to bring some of the world’s leading companies and investors to Australia to meet with their counterparts to discuss a range of business and technological issues.

“As a native Aussie myself, I could not be prouder to bring CannaTech to my country of birth and work with like-minded professionals who understand the immense global health and business potential of medical cannabis moving forward.”

The event will also see iCAN partner with BuddingTech, Australia’s first medical cannabis accelerator. BuddingTech CEO Adam Miller said he is excited to be a part of Australia’s first medical cannabis conference of international scale.

“Australia is well positioned to become a world leader in the production, manufacturing and export of cannabis due to its strong workforce, high-level academic and research capabilities, and well-developed agricultural skills,” said Miller. “CannaTech will allow us to showcase our capabilities in this burgeoning industry.”
