On behalf of the Conference organising committee, I invite you to be a part of the 17th Australian Cotton Conference - Our Fibre, Our Focus, Our Future - at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre at Broadbeach, Queensland where delegates will be focusing on the outlook for the Australian cotton industry and the issues influencing our cotton landscape.


We are currently updating our website to reflect activities for our 2014 event. Further information will be available over coming weeks. If you need specific information immediately - please contact us.

Cotton Australia and the Australian Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA) have combined forces to deliver a conference that unites the entire cotton industry – from researchers right through to brandowners. This will provide a forum where all supply chain partners can come together.


We will endeavour to provide you with knowledge and solutions that will benefit your cotton business. You will hear from international and national speakers as they deliver market leading information and analysis for our industry - physical, economic, social and political. Sessions will cover topical issues such as farm performance, farm and farmer health, innovation, resourcing, inspirational leadership, water issues, herbicide resistance, biosecurity, regional development and the outlook for cotton. Our program is being built and is constantly evolving so please visit our Program page for information on confirmed speakers.


In addition to gaining market insights and understanding, the 17th Australian Cotton Conference will provide opportunities for delegates to forge and strengthen professional networks.


The trade display will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss and network with our service industry personnel providing the latest information on their products.


On the final night we will once again be celebrating the Australian cotton industry with the Cotton Industry Awards Dinner.


Your participation in the 17th Australian Cotton Conference will keep you informed of the latest thinking and opportunities in cotton.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Gold Coast - whether you've never attended before or been to every conference - you'll find us a friendly bunch.
