The objective of the biennial Australian Industrial Hemp Conference (AIHC) is to serve as a national platform for growers, researchers, processors and end-market suppliers. Industry participants attend our conference to present and discuss concepts, key issues and receive updates on the latest findings in growing, producing, and marketing of the wide range of industrial hemp products.

The AIHC was conceived and designed by its founder Robert Bell to both add value and to assist in the future expansion of the industrial hemp industry and its community. From its inception, the AIHC has been supported and sponsored by the conferences’ key partners, AgriFutures Australia, Midlands Seed, the Australian Industrial Hemp Alliance and the Australian Hemp Council.

Hemp seeds captioned as food, clothing, paper, oil, nutrition and housing.
