7th International Hemp Building Symposium


7th International Hemp Building Symposium

The 7th International Hemp Building Symposium was held in Montréal, Canada and organised by the International Hemp Building Association and hosted by ArtCan.

Our symposiums are well known for the ground-breaking technological innovations presented from around the world while at the same time providing an ideal opportunity for networking in this growing sector. This is the largest global gathering of hemp building experts.

The two day event consisted of international speakers with the latest research results and material tests. There were also presentations from people working in the industry about projects they were involved in both planned or completed. The Symposium visit was an outing to a church and stone buildings situated nearby, which had been renovated with Hempcrete and Hemp plaster by ArtCan.

Some of the comments on the 7th Symposium we received:

“….The International Hemp Building Association easily ranks among the top 1% of conferences that I’ve attended.  It exceeded my expectations in relevance of content, knowledgeability of participants and richness of learning opportunities.  Even the scheduled coffee breaks were packed with informative sidebar discussions.  Bravo on galvanizing such a successful event that offers so much promise for the challenges we face on our planet.”

“……I would like to thank you and Steve for the amazing work you do and for this symposium. I was very happy with the whole event, it was a great success!”

“….It was an excellent symposium and a real privilege to be asked to present at it.”
