Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/25/2019 -- From botanicals to bioplastics, and from CBD to building materials, industrial hemp's many uses will be showcased at the 6th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo (#NoCo6) on March 29-30, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza DIA Convention Center in Denver. The NoCo Hemp Expo is the largest gathering of hemp industry professionals under one roof.
Approximately 8,000-10,000 attendees, including investors, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, farmers, producers and other leaders in hemp will attend this year's event to participate in a newly added pre-conference Investment Forum on March 28, plus a full-day Business Conference, Farm Symposium and expanded Exhibition Hall open to professionals on March 29-30.

New Investment Forum Added to Educational Program
The hemp industry is poised for exponential growth now that this incredibly useful plant is legal to grow and sell in the U.S. for the first time in over 80 years. To address the growing needs of the U.S. hemp market, expected to reach $4 billion in sales by 2022, Colorado Hemp Company – the producer of NoCo6 – is partnering with Hemp Industry Daily to add a Pre-Conference Investment Forum on March 28. The pre-conference event is open to accredited and institutional investors along with industry CEOs and executives looking for capital investment avenues to grow their businesses.

The initial round of keynote presenters and speakers for the Investment Forum, Business Conference and Farm Symposium will be announced in early February. Topics for the full-day Let's Talk Hemp Business Conference range from legal and banking issues to supply chain management, retail strategies and marketing and communications.
