Hemp trade show organizers and producers We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA) and Colorado Hemp Company are pleased to announce this year’s in-person event schedule for its two main events – the Denver-based NoCo Hemp Expo and the Southern Hemp Expo, which will take place in Raleigh, NC, this fall.
The industrial hemp community will experience live educational programming and seminars to further advance hemp with socially distanced protocols at both events. Together, NoCo7 and the Southern Hemp Expo will offer a robust lineup of industry experts and leaders and exhibits who will provide insight into hemp’s growth in the past year, new trends, and solutions in the marketplace.
NoCo7 Programming and Details
The two-day, Denver-based NoCo Hemp Expo will take place March 26-27 and will be held throughout the 300,000 square feet of dedicated space at the National Western Complex. There will be three levels of exhibit halls and seminar rooms, which will provide an ample footprint for those who visit the Expo Hall and Conference.
On Thursday, March 25, in advance of NoCo Hemp Expo, there will be a sold out virtual Investor Forum, presented by Nutrition Capital Network. Featuring highly qualified investment professionals and business leaders covering the convergence of hemp, cannabis, nutrition and psychedelic investments, topics to be covered include insights on investment trend and strategies, the global market, and evaluating companies and investment opportunities.
“We’re proud that NoCo7 is taking place at the National Western Complex, home of the internationally famous National Western Stock Show,” said Morris Beegle, President of WAFBA, Co-founder of NoCo Hemp Expo. “We are bringing the hemp industry back together again to reconnect, to reset, to rebuild, and to rise up and continue ‘The Hemp Revolution.’”

The Expo is also hosting an impressive 85,000 square foot outdoor equipment zone featuring innovative hemp technology from Bish Enterprises, New Holland Agriculture, 4Rivers/John Deere, and Formation Ag, a Colorado-based equipment manufacturer from the San Luis Valley.
Leading hemp entrepreneurs and industry experts will take to the Expo’s Main and Silver Mountain Hemp Speakeasy Stage sponsored by Front Range Biosciences where they will share new innovations and technologies. Additionally, Colorado Governor Jared Polis has tentatively confirmed his participation at this year’s event and has shown his support for the hemp industry state-wide by appearing as a guest speaker at five of the past six NoCo Hemp Expos.
Now that Colorado has gone from 25% capacity in-person guidelines at restaurants and gatherings to 50% capacity (from orange to yellow), these new guidelines provide for more space and opportunities for the hemp community to visit while complying with state guidelines set by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
“This year might look and feel different from NoCos of the past, but we maintain our commitment to offering high-quality programming and educational seminars. We’re working closely with all entities to ensure that the event is safe for everyone who attends,” adds Beegle.
