The 17th Conference of the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) will take place as an interactive web conference, on 16-17 June 2020.

The EIHA Hemp Conference is the biggest event on industrial hemp worldwide. A new all-time record was set in 2019 with 415 participants from 49 countries and 34 exhibitors.

The conference is the largest business meeting for all sectors of the hemp and cannabis industry, bringing together professionals from around the world to discuss the latest developments in hemp applications for fibres, shives, seeds and oil and cannabinoids. Applications include automotive and construction, biocomposites, textiles, feed & food, food supplements and pharmaceuticals.

The hemp and cannabis sector continues to show very great potential, but there are still many barriers to overcome. The conference will not only focus on the latest technologies, market figures and business transactions, but also on joint strategies for achieving fair rules for CBD- and THC-containing products in different sectors.

Hemp Product of the Year

For the 3rd time, the Innovation Award “Hemp Product of the Year” will be granted to the young, innovative industrial hemp industry for finding suitable applications and markets for industrial hemp-based products. Hemp products could be hemp food & feed, pharmaceuticals, textiles, biocomposites, construction and insulation material and many more. The focus of the award is on new developments within these business areas. Producers and inventors of innovative industrial hemp products are invited to submit their application for the Innovation Award “Hemp Product of the Year”.
