14th Australian Cotton Conference to be held in August
Jul '08
Growers and consultants registering to attend this year's 14th Australian Cotton Conference, 12-14 August at the Gold Coast has increased over the last week due to recent rain in some areas and a significant decline in the US cotton crop according to event organisers, Australian Cotton Growers Research Association (ACGRA).

They said added bonuses including half price to spouses and partners, the third day free and free child care on top of an impressive speaker list had also created a particularly attractive knowledge event for delegates.

“This year's speaker and R&D workshop presentations will be diverse, relevant and highly valuable to all involved in the entire cotton industry.

The expertise present over the three days has not only motivated growers and consultants to attend but is also drawing national and international media attention,” says the ACGRA, which this year merged its Conference with the Australia Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA) Conference.

Trade display coordinator, Mr Brian O'Connell said commercial exhibitors and sponsors were very positive about this year's combined 'super' conference and the Trade Display represented a good cross section of cotton industry service providers.

He said continued investment in new technology such as the Case IH Module Express, the Australian commercial release of the module building picker at the Conference, showed strong confidence in the future of Australian cotton industry.

The John Deere team will also bring growers up to speed on their soon to be released “round module” technology.

“If you wondered how these modules will be handled in the field then just come and see it done using the latest in Manitou handling equipment,” he said.

Delegates will receive “hands on” experience with a diverse and innovative range of new technologies, all designed to assist the industry to not just cope, but to succeed, in a climate of change.
