Jamaican health and wellness distribution company, Zimmer & Co, has sponsored 200 local farmers to attend the CANEX Business Conference and Expo free of cost. 

The third staging of CanEx Jamaica will take place September 27-29, 2018 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Montego Bay, St. James.
 
The CanEx Jamaica Business Conference and Expo is a business-to-business (B2B) conference that brings together cannabis industry professionals from 20 countries across North America, the Caribbean, Europe, South, and Central America to discuss the latest advances in the medicinal, health, wellness, legal, regulatory, business and investment landscapes.
 
Zimmer CEO, T’Shura Gibbs noted that as “title sponsors for the conference, Zimmer & Co. has agreed to work with three other growing associations including the Ganja Growers and Producers Association, to facilitate additional farmers who wish to attend.  The tickets will allow the farmers access to the expo. Farmers who wish to take advantage of this offer should contact their growing associations who will be contacted directly by the CanEx Jamaica organisers to facilitate the programme.”
  
Delano Seiveright, Senior Advisor and Strategist for Government of Jamaica shared, "It's an excellent initiative that shows tremendous vision and foresight and I am certain will be well received. I hope more companies will similarly facilitate ways to ensure the industry is inclusive while being professional and upholding international standards." 
 
Keynote speakers at this year’s conference include former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, former television talk show host and Founder of Lenitiv Labs, Montel Williams, and CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, the largest cannabis company in the world, Bruce Linton, and Colombian Senator, Juan Manuel Galan.
