More Cannabis & Hemp Events Cancelled
The organisers prefer to say postponed and are already offering alternative dates. We think the approach of re-scheduling hoping for attendence by delegates is hopeful. Everybody’s calendars are now out of sync for at least the next six months and conferences won’t be at the top of people’s to do list as they scrabble for revenue and re-organize
In the world of hemp
Two key European hemp events have fallen victim to the global coronavirus pandemic. The 9th International Hemp Building Symposium and Spannabis, the giant Spanish cannabis expo which also features industrial hemp, both announced scheduling changes this week.
The Hemp Building Symposium has been rescheduled to Sept. 15-17, 2020 at the previously announced venue, Hornington Manor in Yorkshire, UK.
“We have never experienced a similar situation but due to the rapid spread of the Covid-19, our responsibility is to prioritize the health and safety of our delegates and speakers,” said Steve Allin, IHBA’s Director. “We also want to provide delegates and speakers enough time to rework their schedules and plan accordingly for the newly announced September dates.” IHBA is offering refunds for delegate fees.
Spannabis was postponed to autumn 2020 after authorities banned large public gatherings in Spain. The event gathers as many as 25,000 visitors annually.
Coronavirus fears prompt postponement of hemp expo, NoCo Hemp Expo postponed until August
The NoCo Hemp Expo are rescheduling their annual event for August.
The expo, which organizers say is the hemp industry’s largest gathering, was scheduled March 26-28 at the Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel and the National Western Complex. The locations will be the same, but the dates are now Aug. 6-8.
Morris Beegle, the expo’s co-founder, said Tuesday that organizers earlier issued a statement saying they planned to stick to the original date.
“But as it unfolded, it was looking like this was going to get pretty ugly,” Beegle said.
