5th Australian Cotton Conference to be held in August
28
May '10
The 15th Australian Cotton Conference will cater for the entire cotton supply chain, from the farm to the catwalk.

Where: Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland.
When: 10 - 12 August, 2010.

The comprehensive speaker program will include in-depth agronomy and on-farm research sessions, economic and textile market presentations from international experts and the always popular Sunrise Resources Fashion Show.

And as the cotton industry's flagship event, the Trade Hall will offer exhibitors the opportunity to communicate their latest technology, innovation and services to an unrivalled suite of potential customers.

According to Conference Chairman Cleave Rogan, the proposed sessions and topics are the result of wide consultation with peak industry groups, cotton growers, researchers, shippers and the broader textile market.

“Over the years the Conference program has evolved from being mainly research-based to now hearing from growers and consultants themselves, marketers and consumers of our product,” Mr Rogan said.

“At the farm level, the number one issue this year is undoubtedly water sharing policy and how impending changes will affect the industry on the ground. We'll be devoting a session to water management and the impact of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan and buy backs on individuals and our communities. This will be paired up with lots of presentations from growers and consultants as to how they're managing water at the farm level, with a good geographical spread and irrigated and dryland examples.

“Importantly, we'll also hear from international guests about commodity and futures prices, which will be highly topical ahead of the 2010-11 season. Our spinning and retail customers will focus our minds on the world cotton market and what we need to produce to meet our customer's needs,” Mr Rogan said.
