The conference – New Frontiers – will take place at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland from August 2-4, 2016.

We invite you to be part of the Conference, which will focus on the outlook for the Australian cotton industry and the issues influencing our cotton landscape.

Cotton Australia and the Australian Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA) have combined forces to deliver a conference that will unite the entire cotton industry – from researchers through to brandowners – providing 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 moving forward. 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, the latest in cotton research, water issues and opportunities, digital agriculture, new traits, sustainability and opportunities for Australian cotton in the global market. For further detailed program information please go to the Program page.

In addition to gaining market insights and understanding, the 18th Australian Cotton Conference will provide opportunities for you to strengthen and forge your 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. The John Deere Cotton Club will feature again and the Delegate Lounge will provide a great place to relax with a coffee in the Trade Hall.

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

Your participation in the 18th Australian Cotton Conference will keep you informed of the latest thinking and opportunities in cotton.
