The C-45 QUALITY Summit

The highly anticipated second edition of the C-45 Quality Summit is set for May 12-14, 2020! This event will bring together cannabis quality practitioners from across the country. We will be uncovering and discussing best industry practices that will improve and streamline your process, whether apply it to micro-growing or large commercial operations.

The C-45 Quality Summit is a 3 day conference bringing together the quality assurance, quality control and compliance professionals of the Canadian cannabis industry. We will discuss how the recent regulatory changes and progress have presented new and exciting opportunities, and will share new found knowledge and innovative ideas that have sprung from these changes. As a global leader in the cannabis industry, we have the opportunity to lead the way and set the stage for what to strive for in a quality cannabis product. In our rapidly adapting industry, success lies in an organization's ability to create meaningful change and maintain quality programs at the same time. The C-45 Summit promises fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership content for all quality compliance practitioners.
