The venue of the conference has a capacity of 200 participants and space for a lot of booths. The venue is next to the “Hotel am Rhein”, where we have reserved 55 rooms. First we only inform EIHA members about the conference and the Hotel, so You can make Your arrangements as soon as possible – please use the keyword “EIHA 2009”.

Background of the conference
The EIHA Conference established itself as an expert meeting of the natural fibre branch in Europe and also world-wide. Experts from all over the world will meet each other in order to exchange information about the latest developments concerning hemp and other natural fibres. The spectrum of participants will range from cultivation consultants, primary and further processors, traders, mechanical engineers and investors to numerous small and medium-sized enterprises and to globally operating automotive enterprises and suppliers. They all share common interest in the utilisation of hemp fibres and shives. The conference language will be English.
We expect an increased number of participants because of more EIHA members and the context of the International Year of Natural Fibres 2009.
