The first ever three-day Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) 2017 Global Cotton Conference is scheduled to take place in Berlin, Germany from May 16. The event will bring the entire sector together to shape a more sustainable future for the cotton industry.
The conference provides a unique opportunity to explore themes at field-level, in the value chain and in consumer-facing business. Industry experts, business leaders and other key stakeholders will participate in the event to share perspectives on the keys to unlocking a better future for cotton.
Prior to this public conference, BCI will host a half-day members’ only meeting with relevant organisational updates on membership benefits, governance, and strategy.
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a not-for-profit organisation stewarding the global standards for Better Cotton, and bringing together cotton’s complex supply chain, from the farmers to the retailers.
