SEPTEMBER 14, 2017 – MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA – CanEx Jamaica Business Conference & Expo have today announced a strategic partnership with the organizers of ExpoMedeWeed Conference, which takes place in Medellin, Colombia. The collaboration will see both organizations working together to develop the cannabis industry through their respective conferences and networks to promote more commercial endeavor between Jamaica and Colombia.
As the largest cannabis conferences in their respective regions – CanEx Jamaica in the Caribbean, and ExpoMedeWeed in Latin America – both conferences have made a huge impact on the cannabis industry. They continue to do so this year as they host their third annual conferences, with CanEx Jamaica being held September 27-29, 2018 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and ExpoMedeWeed November 23-25, 2018 in Medellin, Colombia.
ExpoMedeWeed Founder, Henry Munoz commented, “The Caribbean and Latin America represent a very important part of the world for this industry. We have great respect for CanEx Jamaica and the great reputation they have built and look forward to working closely with them to develop the industry in this region and specifically to increase business opportunities between Colombia and Jamaica.”
The collaboration between the two brands will kick off with ExpoMedeWeed being one of the exhibitors at the upcoming CanEx Jamaica expo. This will give the Colombian conference organizers an opportunity to liaise and build relationships with key industry influencers and experts from the Caribbean and around the world.
CanEx Jamaica Founder Douglas Gordon said, “We have been working with Henry and his team over the past few months and attended a few shows together. One evening in discussion, the idea of partnering to drive development and progress at a greater rate arose and we have worked since then to bring this partnership together. Colombia and Jamaica represent very important markets for this industry at a global level. In fact one of our Platinum sponsors, Mandara Pharma, has a significant Colombian operation. We welcome the collaboration with ExpoMedeWeed as we work to create wider opportunities between the two countries. ”
