After the successful 2018 GMP, Engineering and Cannabis Forum, PharmaOut is hosting the 2019 Australian Medicinal Cannabis Conference on the 25th and 26th of March, 2019 in Melbourne.

In order to continue the interest that the Medical Cannabis has produced the last years, the Australian Conference 2019 will try to connect different professionals from the industry for a better development. This year the conference tries to get together national and international experts to present and debate the new and current technologies, ideas and challenges related to growing and manufacturing in the Medical Cannabis Industry.

The conference is an event that tries to get the Australia Medical Cannabis Industry among the top competitive countries in the international market. For this purpose, the event will be about new technological concepts, such as Industry 4.0, Big Data analytics, automation and digital inventory systems that easily could change the rules of the industry.

Keeping in mind the ideas of energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the conference organization has preferred prioritizing both speakers and exhibitors that can provide their own personal and professional experience to get a good cultivation and manufacture of Medical Cannabis.
