The Conference organising committee is currently developing an engaging program of expert speakers, topics and issues to be covered over three days of presentations, panel discussions, interactive forums and events.

With the theme “Pushing Boundaries”, delegates can expect to be informed and challenged by a range of technical and not-so-technical topics that put Australian cotton at the cutting edge of agriculture.
