Unlocking Business Opportunities: Exploring Prague, Cologne, Antwerp & Brussels in the Industrial Hemp Industry

By Morris Beegle

The industrial hemp industry has witnessed growth, decline, turbulence and chaos in recent years, propelled by the increasing acceptance and legalization of cannabis-related products. As professionals in this dynamic sector, we found that attending hemp and cannabis business conferences in captivating European cities like Prague and Brussels can prove to be an invaluable opportunity for networking, knowledge sharing and exploring potential partnerships.

Prague: A Historical Hub of Innovation
As the first stop on my European journey, Prague offered a unique blend of history and innovation. I was there for two reasons, with the first being to attend and speak at The Cannabis Summit on May 27, a cannabis-focused discussion with a great line-up of speakers revolving around perceived future policy and regulation of cannabis in European countries, including the Czech Republic and Germany. The next reason was to visit potential venues and locations that could serve to host an industrial hemp conference and exhibition. The city’s rich cultural heritage and stunning architecture provide a captivating backdrop for engaging in industry-related discussions. Additionally, Prague’s emerging role in the hemp industry makes it an ideal location for networking and forging international collaborations. The conference venues in Prague are diverse in possibilities, ensuring that participants can immerse themselves in the culture and history of the Heart of Europe.

How did your career lead you to hemp?
Rocky Mountain High tells my hemp story: I was living in Boulder in 2019. The Farm Bill had just passed in late 2018 and all of the talk in Colorado was about hemp and how it will be a lifeline for small farmers. Nothing had worked – corn, beets – for the small farmer. I was reading about clearing $85K an acre growing hemp. You would go to breakfast and the waitstaff would be talking about hemp and the opportunity. 

I have started almost a dozen businesses in my life and thought (hemp) was interesting. I figured real estate was underpriced considering what the hemp multiplier would be from all the talk. I purchased a 36-acre farm in Longmont and I was going to be a hemp farmer.
