Following the latest Committee meeting on the Gold Coast, the agenda for Conference is taking shape with sessions, speakers and topics identified from across industry.
Kicking off with award winning speaker and business leader Lucy Bloom on the topic of “Doing Business Differently” and closing with renowned demographer Bernard Salt, the three day event will cover topics as diverse as the industry itself.
The Australian Cotton Conference organising committee has received input from across industry in the formation of the agenda with strong focus on research, agronomy, business, leadership and marketing. Speakers will provide both technical research and practical farming advice, and external presenters will challenge and present new ways of thinking and innovative approaches to cotton challenges.
Delegates can expect to learn about soil health and carbon farming, smart irrigation methods that generate profit, new farm workplace cultures, the global cotton market, biodiversity and nature’s workforce, pests and diseases, water buy backs, data, digital agriculture, sustainability, fashion brands and the supply chain and building community trust in cotton.
Celebrating 50 years, Cotton Australia’s contributions will be highlighted throughout the event, Australian Cotton Award winners will be announced at the traditional gala dinner on closing night, Wincott will host its ever popular luncheon and the Australian Cotton Shippers Association and Cotton Australia will host the fashion event with the theme “Australian by Design” to highlight the brands supporting Cotton Australia’s work.
As always registration costs will cover all meals and a variety of social events are available to ensure networking opportunities are maximised.
