CHTA 2004 Conference to be held in Winnipeg October 24th 


CHTA 2004 Conference and Annual General Meeting to be held in Winnipeg

Regina, Saskatchewan

August 17, 2004

The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance/ Alliance Commerciale Canadienne du Chanvre (CHTA/ACCC) will be holding its 2004 Conference and Annual General Meeting in Winnipeg, Manitoba on October 24th, 2004 at The Fairmont Hotel.

The 2004 CHTA Conference will include speakers on hemp seed food, hemp production, hemp as a nutraceutical, and the latest research, as well as address issues related to fibre processing, economic development and new opportunities.

The all day event will begin at 8 AM and will include a hemp lunch, snacks, and excellent networking opportunities for entrepreneurs, farmers, businesses and researchers involved in the Canadian hemp industry. As well, the CHTA's AGM will include elections for Board of Directors and a membership roundtable.

This event follows the University of Manitoba's "Role of CLA in Human Health Conference", also to be held at the Fairmont Hotel on October 21-23rd.

"The CHTA held its first annual meeting in Toronto last October and we are very pleased to be having this year's event in Winnipeg," says Arthur Hanks, Executive Director CHTA. "Manitoba, in many ways, is Canada's hemp heartland and attendees will be coming from across the country to be here on the 24th."

Industrial hemp has been grown commercially in Canada since 1998 and Manitoba leads the country in hemp growing, boasts several vibrant hemp businesses, as well as cradling a dedicated research community.

Hemp seed foods are attracting nutritional interest across North America as they are high in digestible protein and are also rich sources of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids. Hemp fibre is increasingly valued as a premium component in such applications as paper, composites, nonwovens, and building materials as well as many other uses.

The Fairmont Hotel is located at 2 Lombard Place, near the intersection of Portage and Main. See http://www.fairmont.com/winnipeg/ for more information...

Conference cost will be $50 for CHTA/ACCC members and 75 $ for nonmembers.
Table display opportunities will be made available for $50 to CHTA members. Space is limited.

Ticket Sales and Pre-registration open Sept 1st, 2004.

The CHTA welcomes speaker inquiries. Full speaker lineup will be announced September 1st.

The nonprofit CHTA's mandate includes market development and advocacy, information creation and distribution, research. Established in 2003, the CHTA is a national group of hemp processors, marketers, farmers and researchers. Membership is open to all companies active in the Canadian industrial hemp sector. Hemp is our business.
