DAVOS 2020

The Consumer Choice Center is pleased to be hosting, in partnership with Prohibition Partners, the second annual Cannabis Conclave in Davos, Switzerland. 2020’s Cannabis Conclave will take place on Thursday January 23rd at Restaurant Höhenweg. The Cannabis Conclave is a unique opportunity to network and hear insights shared by some of the leading Cannabis executives, global investors, and policy makers, while enjoying a three-course Swiss lunch accompanied by wines and other drinks.

The event starts at 11:00am, with attendees meeting at 10:45 am at the cable car station Parsennbahn in Davos. All attendees will be provided with tickets for the cable car and will jointly travel the mountain to the restaurant. The event will conclude at 4:00pm.

Participants will not only be from the cannabis industry, but also include investors, representatives from various industries, business journalists, regulators, and policymakers. We want to use this event to fuel the legalization debate globally and show the legitimacy and maturity of the growing legal industry.
