The Commercial & Industrial Hemp Symposium to be held at the Vancouver Trade & Convention Center Feb. 1819, will host a delegation of bankers, buyers, environmentalists, farmers and government officials seeking to learn more about the uses of industrial hemp as a result of recent changes to legislation in Canada. Speakers at the conference will include Dr. Jace Callaway of Finland; Dr. Kai Nebel of the Institute for Applied Research in Germany; Dr. Med Byrd from North Carolina University; researchers from the Institute of Natural Fibres in Poland; John Hobson from Hemcore in England, which grew 4,000 acres of industrial hemp for textiles, paper and animal bedding in 1996; and David Watson of the International Hemp Association in the Netherlands.
