“We are extremely excited to take this next step in our international expansion by becoming the first direct selling company to feature phyto-cannabinoid based products in Europe and to share our products, culture and mission throughout Europe,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. Chief Operating Officer and Kannaway CEO, Blake Schroeder. “We have always planned to bring our revolutionary products to a worldwide audience, and Europe is the perfect next step for our company.”

 

Great Potential in Europe

 

There is great potential in the European market for Kannaway. Direct selling companies have experienced incredible success across Europe, generating more than $35 billion in retail sales in 2015, according to The World Federation of Direct Selling Associations (WFDSA) annual report.

Kannaway first announced its intention to expand into Europe back in May. The company hit its scheduled rollout before the end of the 2017.

Kannaway now distributes to countries across Europe, including all those in the European Union, through its team of brand ambassadors.

 

Excitement for Kannaway throughout Europe

 

From September 15th to October 1st of this year, Kannaway hosted a two week, multi-city European tour, promoting the many benefits of CBD and the Kannaway system at events around Europe. Introducing Kannaway to Europe, these events helped build excitement, provided the opportunity for new distributors to join, and educate existing brand ambassadors on the best practices for growing their CBD oil business.

Events were held in:

  • Warsaw, Poznan, and Krakow in Poland
  • Brno and Prague in the Czech Republic
  • Bratislava, Slovakia
  • Regensburg and Stuttgart in Germany
  • Athens, Greece
  • Helsinki, Finland
  • Orleans, Clermont-Ferrand, and Limoges, France

Then, on November 19th, Kannaway hosted its first official regional event in Prague. Attendees heard from Kannaway executives like President Brad Tayles and International Vice President Alex Grapov and high ranking brand ambassadors Randy Schroeder and Valerie Aloisio, as well as leaders from around Europe. This event closely mirrored the company’s Red Carpet events held in cities across the U.S.

“There is already a huge sense of enthusiasm in the air when I meet with potential customers in Europe,” said Grapov. “People are excited by the opportunity to get involved in our exploding industry with such a credible company and amazing product offering.”

Kannaway has high expectations for the European market due to the experience of several members of its executive team. CEO Blake Schroeder brings a decade of leadership in international direct sales, where he drove incredible sales growth.

Grapov has over 10 years experience as a high level executive with direct sales and network marketing experience with European companies, focusing on sales strategy, product introductions, and market expansion and development in over 50 international markets.

Kannaway anticipates celebrating its grand opening in Europe with an event in May of 2018, just a year after announcing its intentions to enter the European market. Find more about Kannaway HERE or Kannaway EU HERE, including how to become a brand ambassador.
