Forum, trade show deliver at Cotton Collective + PICS

Liz Wells, August 2, 2023

Omnicotton senior vice president Beau Stephenson is based in Dallas, Texas, and gave an overview on the global market to delegates at the Cotton Collective.

REPRESENTATIVES from across the cotton supply chain have gathered in Toowoomba this week for Cotton Australia’s Cotton Collective.

As the largest cotton-industry event for 2023 in Australia, the program kicked off yesterday with a field tour to Darling Downs sites, preceding a two-day program and trade show at the Toowoomba Showgrounds.

Cotton Australia chair and Central Queensland grower Nigel Burnett said the event was being held at a fortuitous time for the Australian cotton industry, where big crops were being sold into strong markets.

“Even with back-to-back bumper crops…demand for Australian cotton remains very high,” Mr Burnett said.

Cotton Collective is held in off years to the biennial Australian Cotton Conference, and gives growers, consultants and merchants a chance to hear the latest in research and market intelligence.

Topics covered included ESG, marketing, labour, irrigation, crop health, and spray drift.

The event incorporates a trade show, where exhibitors get the chance to interact with current and prospective clients, and share the latest in products and services with visitors.
