River's Edge Convention Center • St. Cloud

The Minnesota Hemp Conference & Expo is the premiere one-day event for those interested in our state’s fast-growing hemp industry, including farmers, processors, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, service providers, and more. Previously hosted by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, this year’s conference is being put on by the Minnesota Hemp Association—Minnesota’s largest and only industry-wide trade association advancing the growth and vitality of our state's hemp industry from seed to shelf. The MHA will build on the tradition of delivering high-quality, informative programming, and, for the first time, will add a vendor expo. Whether you’re already an experienced grower or entrepreneur, or just want to learn more about the potential for this industry, this event will give you the opportunity to learn from leading experts and connect with others who can help your business or farm.
