Medicinal Cannabis Industry Australia (MCIA) is excited to announce the return of ACannabis in March 2021.

Peter Crock, Chair MCIA, says, “We believe it’s important to provide an opportunity to bring together all facets of the medicinal cannabis industry ecosystem – to connect, engage and build a framework to support patients’ well-being, enable best practice, and support industry growth. Now more than ever we need to stay connected and we are thrilled to do this via an innovative virtual platform. Going virtual also means we can provide greater access for industry members from around Australia and globally to attend. This year, with the theme, Unlocking The Potential of Medicinal Cannabis, our virtual conference will be aptly named ACannabis EVOLVE and we invite all industry colleagues to attend.”


Using an intuitive and engaging platform, ACannabis EVOLVE will continue to offer everything a face to face conference can, including:
● An Auditorium with an unprecedented line up of national and international industry experts
● Networking Opportunities with industry colleagues, researchers and healthcare practitioners, including 1:1 video calls and breakout groups
● An Exhibit Hall providing access to companies & support services involved in the medicinal cannabis sector
● A Virtual Delegate Bag for you to load up with vital documents, and industry updates, and emailed to you at the end of the conference
● LIVE Access for two days, with an additional 30 days of On Demand content


ACannabis EVOLVE will bring together licensed medicinal cannabis companies, policy makers, governments, global leaders, healthcare professionals, patient advocates, technical support, investors and industry participants to share knowledge, exchange ideas and showcase leading edge industry technologies, opportunities, patient access, regulations and investment.
And a virtual event has the opportunity to provide an even greater reach to industry representatives from both overseas and nationally, with greater affordability. All from the convenience of your laptop, tablet or phone.


Secure your place at this engaging, innovative conference as we collaborate and follow our vision of creating a responsible and legally compliant industry, delivering both economic and social value, while focusing on individual well-being.
