The industrial hemp business is growing every year. The strong fibres are used for insulation materials and biocomposites, mainly in automotive interiors. Hemp food products are increasing in market volume and with the extraction of Cannabidiol (CBD) for pharmaceutical applications, farmers can improve profits. The conference language is English. And based on the past conference in 2016, we are expecting 300 participants from more than 30 countries.
