Ten Years After: A Space in Time – Recap of The 10th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo

By Let’s Talk Hemp

The 10th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo has drawn its curtains, signaling yet another milestone for the burgeoning hemp sector. Set against the backdrop of Estes Park, Colorado, this year’s gathering served as a vibrant testament to the industry’s enduring strength and promise.

The journey of the NoCo Hemp Expo began humbly in 2014, born in the cozy confines of Ricky B’s bar located in Windsor, Colorado. From its modest origins, the expo grew, finding homes at various venues including the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland and the Crowne Plaza in Denver. Each year saw remarkable growth, culminating in the landmark 2019 show, which boasted over 10,000 attendees and a bustling expo hall.
