The Power of Hemp
Midwest iHemp Expo
May 20-21, 2022
Registration is open!
Building a Future with Hemp
As the U.S. manufacturing sector continues looking for sustainable practices, materials and processes, hemp is an emerging material of interest. Makers around the country have been looking at ways industrial hemp can be used for everything from automotive interiors to animal feed and top-line clothing.
In January 2020, we hosted an industrial hemp trade show at the Lansing Center. The event, attended by more than 1,200 professionals, featured presenters from around the nation discussing growing, processing, marketing and the myriad of uses for industrial hemp in Michigan.
On May 20 – 21, 2022, the Midwest iHemp Expo will focus the event to connect people and resources, farmers and makers, in an effort to fuel the growth of this limitless industry. On Friday the Expo Hall is focused on Business to Business connections and sales. Saturday is free to enter the Expo Hall with a focus on Business to Consumer.
Join us in Lansing, Michigan at the Lansing Center as we bring together the leaders of the growing industrial hemp industry to map out the future, develop the supply chain for hemp to industry, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the year ahead.
A wide range of content is being organized for the 2022 Expo. The content will be updated under the Speaker tab when available. We look forward to seeing you in person!
The 2022 Expo schedule is structured around a great exhibitor experience. We have plenty of time set aside where visitors can wander the hall. On Saturday we open the doors to everyone for a consumer-oriented day at the Expo.
U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Training on Thursday, May 19th at the Radisson in Lansing, MI. Get prepared for coming regulation with this timely training by FoodChain ID.
This was a well organized event. They were ready for a crowd, and I thought there was a good amount of people on Friday, but never crowded. Good speakers with plenty of Q&A .
Great job to all the vendors and the iHemp team for the class act of putting on one heck of a show!
We made it up Friday night by 8:00 PM and we were at the show first thing in the morning. We were able to see everything and talk to everybody we wanted to. The weather held off and by 3:15 PM we were on the road and in an hour and a half we were far enough south to miss the ice and snow storm and get a clean ride home back to Mansfield, Ohio. Your show was exceptional. Better than I had hoped for. Kudos to everybody that put all the time and energy into pulling that off. Well worth the trip and a great experience.
