Important Update on the iHemp Summit and Expo


Dear NZHIA members,

As you’ll all be well aware, global events have meant that travel for 2020 has been disrupted for many of the international speakers who had planned to attend the iHemp Summit and Expo.

Like every industry – the show must go on. Hemp is gaining momentum, and we’re not going to let this stop us. We’re putting the i in iHemp with our first virtual conference on 1st July 2020, followed by moving the planned 2020 iHemp Summit and Expo from June 2020 to May 2021.

The 2021 iHemp Summit and Expo will be held from Wednesday 19th May – Sunday 23rd May 2021 in Rotorua. The 2020 iHemp Virtual Summit on 1st July will see the global hemp community converge online for a one-day event. This will be preceded by Hemp 101 – an online presentation that introduces newcomers to the world of Hemp, and prepares them to attend the virtual Summit.

To register your interest for the 2020 Virtual Summit or the 2021 Summit and Expo, please email

For those who have already purchased a ticket to our 2020 iHemp Summit and Expo, this can be either transferred to the 2020 iHemp Virtual Summit, used for the 2021 iHemp Expo and Summit, or refunded in full.

For those who have already made travel plans and booked flights or accommodation, we are happy to assist in changing plans.

If you hear of anyone who may be affected, please contact  for more information about how we can help.

Kind regards,
