The 2021 Australian Cotton Trade Show will be held in conjunction with Cotton Australia’s Cotton Collective and Industry Awards in Toowoomba – August 25-26.
Drawing on the very successful biennial Australian Cotton Conference model, a ‘mini’ conference went on the road to Griffith in 2017 and 2019.
Each event saw over 60 exhibitors greet 450 growers, consultants, researchers, processors and service providers on-site.
The Cotton Collective with its scheduled research and policy forums ran concurrently with the Trade Show’s Cotton Trade Display which accommodated the catering stations and bar.
The ‘mini’ conference concept in the South proved to be a very successful exercise – it will be repeated Wednesday August 25 and Thursday August 26, 2021 in Toowoomba.
The Cotton Collective will be held in the Glenvale room at Toowoomba Showgrounds with meals and catering just across the way at the Founders’ Pavilion. Anyone who has attended the Toowoomba Show can vouch for the excellence of the facilities, so it promises to be an outstanding event.
The Collective will feature some excellent speakers on issues close to the heart of cotton growers – water, pest management, precision agriculture, policy issues and much more.
The Cotton Industry Awards are back this year and the presentation will be held on Wednesday, August 25 at a venue to be announced. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
