16th Australian Cotton Conference wraps up on Gold Coast
20
Aug '12
1600 delegates, 80 speakers, 48 scientific posters, 75 exhibitors and some 14000 meals have all helped to make the 16th Australian Cotton Conference a huge success.

Organising committee chairman Lyndon Mulligan was full of praise for his committee, the speakers, presenters, sponsor, poster authors, delegates and exhibitors that all combine to make the conference a huge success.
 
"I have been very lucky to lead such a great team, who really seem to know what the cotton industry expects in the way of a conference, and then gets on to deliver it," Mr Mulligan said.
 
"The programme really had something for everyone.
 
"No matter if you have a real scientific/technical bent, or if you are more interested in some of the social issues that face our industry, there were sessions that would appeal to you."
 
Sessions ranged from the latest in weed control and resistance management, to the economics of cotton production. There were sessions on the impact of mining and coal seam gas, connecting young aboriginal people into the industry, the supply logistics challenges of record crops, a cotton growing "masterclass' and a very well attended session on dry-land cotton.
 
The final plenary session featured high profile sex therapist Rosie King, and the Gruen Transfers Todd Sampson who both entertained and challenge the delegates.
 
The conference winds up after the premier screening of "A Life In Cotton - The Birth of the Modern Australian Cotton Industry", with delegate then heading to the 70's themed Australian Cotton Industry Awards Dinner and Presentation. 
 
The Conference is overseen by a Committee of volunteers, made up of cotton growers, researchers, merchants and representatives from Cotton Australia and ACSA.
