Registration Open For AmericanHort’s Hemp Conference

Registration is now open for AmericanHort’s inaugural Hemp Conference, set to take place July 9-10, prior to Cultivate’21. This two-day event will include a trade show and education programming featuring leading perspectives on hemp production. The Hemp Conference at Cultivate will be held in Battelle Hall at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and a separate registration will be required. Discounts will be offered if attending both events.

“This event brings together hemp growers, industry vendors, educators and researchers to discuss best practices for successful hemp production,” said Ken Fisher, president & CEO of AmericanHort. “As more ornamental plant growers look to diversify their business with hemp production, it is important that AmericanHort provide quality grower programming for this crop.”

The event is designed for greenhouse and field growers, both novice and expert alike, who are currently growing hemp or contemplating entering this market. Anyone wanting to learn more about the technical aspect of being a successful grower will benefit from participation.

The hemp education programming will be production focused covering topics like the constantly evolving landscape of state and federal laws and regulations, the impact of genetics and environment on yield and quality, production inputs, identification and management of hemp pest and diseases, harvesting and processing practices, and more.

Speakers at The Hemp Conference include:

  • Josh Schneider, Cultivaris Hemp
  • Peter Armando and Tami Van Gaal, Griffin Greenhouse Supplies
  • Janna Beckerman, Purdue University
  • Suzanne Wainwright-Evans, Buglady Consulting
  • Dan Gillespie and Cari Peters, JR Peters, Inc.
  • Allison Justice, The Hemp Mine

Exhibit sales for this trade show are now open and sponsorship opportunities are available.

Registration for The Hemp Conference includes a complimentary Expo Plus for Cultivate’21, providing access to the Cultivate’21 trade show. Discounted event registration is offered to AmericanHort members registering for this conference and the Cultivate’21 All-Access education pass.
