noco hemp expo 2020

NoCo Hemp Expo sets next trade show for March 2021

On the heels of the June 2020 Experience Hemp SUMMER SOLSTICE Virtual Conference & Trade Show, NoCoHemp Expo announced another virtual event set for the autumn and announced that its next in-person Colorado hemp program will be next spring.

“The decision to reschedule NoCo7 was not easy and was made over a period of time,” said Morris Beegle, Let’s Talk Hemp Media Co-founder and Producer of NoCo Hemp Expo. “The industry and our community’s wellbeing is at the top of everyone’s mind, and, in order to protect the health and safety of everyone attending, we had to make the decision to move the conference to next year.

Show organizers in all arenas have had to shift plans in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Beegle points out, but he remains optimistic that the industry and community will flourish and grow in years to come.

Virtual NoCo hemp event in fall

Originally scheduled for March 2020, and then rescheduled for this coming August, organizers made the hard decision to push NoCo7 to March 25-27, 2021, due to guidelines and event regulations set forth by the City of Denver.

“We are looking forward to an in-person event,” noted Beegle, “but will continue to plan virtual events that positively impact our industry, including a fall event that will coincide with this year’s harvest.

“We also plan to expand upon our Let’s Talk Hemp digital magazine, and will create new multimedia platforms to inform, educate and unite the hemp community.”

We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA), in conjunction with NoCo Hemp Expo and Let’s Talk Hemp media are also pleased to announce plans for a third virtual event coming this fall on November 11-13, 2020. Details and registration will open soon.

Summer Solstice hemp expo went online

NoCo7’s venue will remain the same, at the famed National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. Additional details to come.

The promoters pivoted and instead of NoCo Hemp Expo 2020 they put together the online program, Experience Hemp Summer Solstice. Insightful conversations on industrial uses of the entire hemp plant and technological advancements were themes of theJune 16-19, 2020 virtual event.

Beegle added, “We’re committed to helping the hemp industry thrive. The Summer Solstice Virtual Conference & Expo reaffirmed and solidified the need for our community to gather and share ideas while navigating these uncertain times.”

Participants accessed six live webcast Supersessions, which covered important topics relevant to the industrial hemp market today. More than thirty guest speakers, including presenting sponsor PureHemp Technologies, kicked off conversations centered on the evolution of hemp and its potential during these ever-changing times.

Raising THC limits to protect farmers

Among the highlights included an earnest discussion on the arbitrary 0.3 percent THC vs. the more reasonable one percent solution in which hemp advocates declared the current ruling as a roadblock for farmers.

“We need to change federal guidelines while working with the USDA. We can do that by telling the stories of the farmers. Their stories will hopefully get us there so we can stop decriminalizing the pioneers of our industry. Without the farmers, we have nothing,” says Doug Fine, bestselling author, hemp farmer, and renowned industry advocate.

Beegle agreed, “There is so much passion in our industry, and this 0.3 percent burden should not be on the farmer’s shoulders. Our only option in getting legislation passed is to stand together. We know there is a better solution out there, we need to unite on all fronts.”

Additionally, panelists discussed hemp’s potential for fiber, textiles, building materials and more, and addressed hemp as a key ingredient for food sovereignty. Participants also heard from investors regarding hemp’s economic outlook and viability as a commodity beyond the CBD market.
