Cotton Australia has announced the cancellation of the 2021 Australian Cotton Collective and the postponement of the 2021 Australian Cotton Industry Awards dinner. The Collective and Awards dinner was due to be held from August 24-26, 2021 in Toowoomba. Cotton Australia is an industry trade group representing cotton farmers and corporations in Australia.

The event organising committee and Cotton Australia’s board recently met and decided to cancel the Collective and postpone the awards due to the unacceptable risk to the health and safety of attendees posed by the growing COVID-19 outbreaks in south-east Queensland and New South Wales. Other contributing factors for the decision were limitations to attendance presented by border closures, and the wet winter constricting the availability of growers to leave their farm and attend the Collective, Cotton Australia said in a press release.

Cotton Australia has taken the decision keeping in mind the utmost importance on adhering to public health orders and ensuring the health and safety of individuals. Full refunds will be provided to those who have bought tickets.

Cotton Australia will now work towards staging a function to recognise the awards nominees and recipients at a time when it is safe and COVID restrictions allow. Cotton Australia’s annual general meeting, which was due to be held during the Collective, will now be held as an online event.
