Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company Kannaway marks its full entry into the European market with Grand Opening Event.
Kannaway hosted its largest ever event, celebrating its Europe Grand Opening Event in Prague from November 14-16. Intended to be the company’s official launch in the European market, the event had the atmosphere of a party as Kannaway has much to cheer during 2018 after record growth in Europe and at home in the U.S.
At the Europe Grand Opening Event, attendees heard from an impressive list of speakers, were the first to experience Kannaway’s newest products for the European market, heard about Kannaway’s latest developments first-hand, and partied well into the night. Here are the highlights from Kannaway’s event.
Black Tie Incentive
As with all major Kannaway events, the Europe Grand Opening Event kicked off the night before the event with the company’s exclusive Black Tie incentive event. Kannaway’s top performing European brand ambassadors were treated by the company to an unforgettable experience. The company whisked its qualifying BAs away for a night of dinner, drinks, keynote speeches from Kannaway’s corporate team, and live entertainment.
Ribbon Cutting on Europe Grand Opening
Kannaway celebrated its official launch in Europe with its Ribbon Cutting on the first day of the event. After a year of work expanding its presence and building its local corporate team, the company’s grand opening marks the culmination of this work and the start of full operations within the European market. We are thrilled to recognize this milestone in Kannaway’s growth.
Innovative New Business Building Tool
During the company’s Grand Opening Event, Kannaway introduced its newest brand ambassador tool, the Kannaway Connect app. Using the Kannaway Connect app, BAs can organize and track their personal Kannaway business, share incredible Kannaway educational content, access their back office, and more.
At the event, the company launched the app in a number of European languages, making it easier than ever for its Europe BAs to use this valuable networking and business building smartphone app.
Exciting New Products for the Kannaway Europe Store
Over its Europe Grand Opening weekend, Kannaway introduced a number of new CBD and hemp products to its European store.
First, Kannaway launched its Premium Humulus Oil. This innovative product captures the same benefits as the company’s hemp oil products, but because it is formulated using Kriya brand humulus (hops) oil, Premium Humulus Oil avoids the controversy that is often tied to cannabis products, even those made with hemp.
Kannaway also introduced the full Hempy’s product line to its European market. Made with hemp and hemp blend fabrics, these soft, yet durable hemp clothing products and accessories are crafted to last through repeated use. Products added to the store include hats, beanies, wallets, t-shirts, and more.
The company also added 300 mg vape cartridges to its HempVAP CBD vaporizer line. Available in both citrus and eucalyptus flavors, these hemp oil vapes combine hemp oil with natural terpene flavors for a delicious, calming vape experience.
Finally, Kannaway launched its two nutrient powders – Power Protein and SuperGreens. Each of these nutrient powders was designed to fulfill crucial dietary needs consumers may be missing through their daily meals. These powders tap into the benefits of over 40 superfoods and essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and more.
The Kannaway Grand Opening Event featured a number of expert speakers, including members of the Kannaway executive team like CEO Blake Schroeder, President Brad Tayles, and International Vice President Alex Grapov; top brand ambassadors from the U.S. and the EU markets; Kannaway product formulators Craig Nandoo and Janelle Kim; Hempy’s founder Kenneth Smith; and more. These speakers gave attendees a comprehensive education on Kannaway, its products, the opportunity for success building a Kannaway business, the benefits of CBD, business building tools, best practices, and much, much more.
Included in the weekend’s speakers was ECHO Connection Board President Andrea Barnes. ECHO Connection is a charitable organization that focused on helping those who rely on cannabinoids. ECHO stands for Education, Collaboration, and Hope – the pillars of the ECHO Connection mission. Already established in North America, ECHO Connection recently began operations in the European Union.
Attendees at the event heard from Barnes about how donations to ECHO Connection through Kannaway are used to assist patients and their families in accessing the cannabinoid products on which they rely. Kannaway brand ambassadors are able to give to ECHO Connection directly through the Kannaway store.
On Saturday night of Kannaway’s Europe Grand Opening Event, the company hosted its traditional Kannaway Party, inviting guests to come let loose as the company celebrated its success. At the Kannaway Party, the company had a live band and a Beatles theme. Attendees were able to dance, take music themed pictures, and enjoy the company of their fellow BAs.
Believe National Convention
Kannaway’s next large event will be the Believe National Convention in the company’s hometown of San Diego this April. At the Believe event, Kannaway will reveal new brand elements, new products, new incentives, and new business building tools.
