REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN - September 28th, 2005 - The Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance/ Alliance Commerciale Canadienne du Chanvre (CHTA/ACCC) is holding its 2005 Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 30th, 2005 at The Greenwood Inn.

"2005 has been a striking year for industrial Hemp in Canada," says Arthur Hanks, Executive Director, CHTA. "In response to strong prices and robust demand we have seen licensed hemp acreage jump almost to 20,000 acres, both conventional and certified organic. Opportunities are being seized with hemp and this year's conference will have information about all the borders we are crossing: in trade, in food nutrition, fibre development, and the regulatory environment."

As with CHTA's past events, this year's show will be great value for those working in the sector and those who are seeking to evaluate opportunities in hemp.
