A special one-day event at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square


December 1-3 2017

Turn your next conference into a vacation on Hawaii’s most beautiful island



We look forward to bringing the ICBC back to Canada for another collaboration


The International Cannabis Business Conference | 2017

Blending business and politics with activism and networking, we have built our reputation at ICBC the past several years with successful, sold-out events in both the United States and Canada, and are looking forward to a huge turnout in 2017 starting with our San Francisco conference February 17 (with a VIP Reception the night before, February 16). The ICBC is California’s longest continually running cannabis conference, and this year’s event will be held at Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

Following this will be our first conference in Europe, the ICBC in Berlin April 10-12 at the Maritim ProArte Hotel. We couldn’t have better timing as this event dovetails perfectly with Germany currently paving the way for legal cannabis. 

Finish 2017 with us at the Cannabis Island Retreat on the island of Kauai December 1 through December 3. The Grand Hyatt Kauai has been home to many international conferences, and the ICBC promises to be the best event ever, so don’t forget your swimsuit and book your conference vacation today!

Notable speakers at past events have included Steve DeAngelo of Harborside Health Center; former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders; Arjan Roskam of Greenhouse Seeds; U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher; Brendan Kennedy of Privateer Holdings; as well as Ed Rosenthal, Tommy Chong, and Dr. Gabor Maté. Being able to speak directly with these influential industry leaders is a priceless opportunity for anyone interested or involved in the rapidly expanding cannabis space, and we look forward to bringing you more top notch content in 2017.
