Join Show-Me Hemp for Their 1st Annual Hemp Industry Conference!

Join the Show-Me Hemp Association team for a day of education and networking on March 1, 2021. The 1st annual conference will be held  in the heart of Missouri, at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Jefferson City. The theme of the conference is “Bringing the Market to You” and will feature business owners and industry leaders who can help growers find buyers for their products. The hemp industry needs growers and businesses to connect and work together, and Show-Me Hemp exists to create those relationships.

Collaboration with One Voice and MOA

To further the goal of making connections, Show-Me Hemp has teamed up with One Voice for Ag and the Missouri Organic Association to help put this conference together. This partnership will create more opportunities for networking and education, and give our attendees an even better conference experience. Representatives from MOA will be on-site for those who are interested in growing hemp organically. SHMA is also helping with MOA’s annual conference on March 2nd and 3rd. We look forward to working together to unite agriculture to speak with one shared voice.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Our main goal in this conference is to provide opportunities for networking and education, but health and safety is our top priority. With that in mind, we will have several protocols in place to make sure that this is a safe event. Masks will be required for all attendees (hotel policy), and we will be limiting the number of in-person attendees to ensure social distancing is possible. For those unable to attend in person, a virtual attendance option will be available through our partnership with One Voice for Ag.

Note: the conference date was moved to March 1st (originally scheduled for February 3rd) to further ensure that our conference will be as safe as possible.
