As we predicted in our recent article about European cannabis expos cancelled due to Coronavirus, it seems that industry events around the world are cancelling or postponing due to coronavirus.
The first big cannabis event to be cancelled is Cannatech Tel Aviv, that was posponed to mid June. While this is the first big cannabis event to be cancelled, it is not the last one and in fact, we predict the ALL events will either be cancelled or limited to locals. In the next few days we will see it happening everywhere, so if you plan to attend a conference, you better check the cancellation policy now, as there might be still enough time to get your money back.
In addition for cancelling all international events hapenning in Israel, the Israeli ministry of health have ordered all medical personal to remain in Isreal and avoid flying abroad, so no Israeli doctor can now leave the country, without getting a permission.
Travellers coming from Spain, Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland must be placed under a 14-day home quarantine. Even worse, by Friday, these travellers will find that tgheir entrance to the country is prohibitted, the same as people coming from Italy, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and China.
The press release below:

If you have plans to travel to any global cannabis event in the near future, double check that the event is still on schedule and, if not, you can see if any refunds will be issued for your trouble. So far, U.S. events are still going on as planned, but that’s always subject to change should an emergency situation occur.
