Facilitating growth in the medical cannabis and hemp ecosystems within the CEE region

What is CECF?

CECF exists with the aim of building an ethical cannabis ecosystem. The conference has expanded over the last year and formed two events – Industrial Hemp and Novel Foods together with Medical Cannabis in Poland and the CEE.

Both conferences are valuable communications platforms that bring together entrepreneurs, doctors, investors, patients, businesses and the government, who want to shape and develop an ethical cannabis market in Central Europe and beyond.

Flagship conference

Industrial Hemp and Novel Foods

Warsaw, Oxford Tower
May 22th-23th, 2020

3 politicians

10+ industry speakers

50+ attendees

14 countries represented

After the initial event which brought together over 200 people from 14 countries last year, Central Cannabis Forum is looking to expand upon this in 2020. 

The second edition of CECF, Medical Cannabis in Poland and CEE taking place in Warsaw, is a unique chance to join a growing CECF Community, learn from seasoned industry experts and expand your business network – at the conference and the exhibitors venue.  Become a part of the discussion on legalisation with politicians, doctors, businessmen and lawyers.

The first edition of the conference will be a great opportunity to stay on top of hemp industry knowledge, learn strategies and success stories from experts from around the world and build new business networks. 

We are creating a space for networking and a chance to present your brand at the venue. Unlike a flagship CECF conference, Industrial Hemp and Novel Foods is a new space for growing hemp businesses.
