Legal cannabis industry leaders join forces to educate new market entrants at regional InterCannAlliance Symposia in Latin AmericaEuropeAsia and Africa

SYDNEYOct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — New Frontier Data, the authority in data, analytics and business intelligence in the global cannabis industry, in conjunction with CannaTech and leading companies representing the key building sectors of any legal cannabis market, announces the creation of the InterCannAlliance (ICA).

The ICA has been established to educate and inform future regional market and thought leaders interested in the cannabis industry, fostering responsible, transparent and effective market practices learned across more mature North American cannabis sectors.

“The InterCannAlliance is a much-needed effort,” said New Frontier Data Founder & CEO Giadha Aguirre de Carcer, “as we now have dozens of nations around the world simultaneously decriminalizing or legalizing cannabis, in response to the increasing acceptance, support and demand of millions of patients around the globe. The Alliance will help empower and engage government and commercial stakeholders by sharing what current leaders have learned in the past decade. Given the speed to market we are seeing, it is imperative to avoid the pitfalls and be aware of expected challenges across each of these unique regions, while understanding where the opportunities will come from, and how to best capitalize on them as they arise. ”

Multinational Cannabis market leaders exclusively sharing their expertise at one-day, invitation-only, regional ICA symposia, will include:

    • VicenteSederberg, Policy
    • Hoban Law Group, Regulation
    • CohnReznick,  Taxation
    • SteepHill Labs,  Lab Testing
    • Simplifya, Compliance
    • Lift, Distribution and Customer Education
    • Cultivation and Processing global enterprises which will only be announced to attendees
    • And New Frontier Data, Data & Reporting

ICA has committed to working with local partners and decision-makers across the Latin American, Asia-Pacific and African regions, starting with the Latin America ICA Symposium in 2019.

“New Frontier Data is proud to have partnered with CannaTech who has been fostering education and connectivity across the international cannabis space for almost a decade,” added Aguirre de Carcer. “CannaTech will organize and coordinate locally for all regional ICA events.”
