Over 1,000 delegates from the global cotton community are expected to attend an event at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre that will focus on a shared vision for the future of the cotton community.
ICA President, Mohit Shah, comments: ‘Dubai is a dynamic hub for global commerce, with unmatched infrastructure that provides seamless connectivity for businesses worldwide. Hosting the ICA’s most important event in Dubai will make the event easily accessible to all, as well as attracting a large participation from the Indian subcontinent, which today has a very significant share of global production, consumption, export and import trade of raw cotton. The theme of the event, ‘Shaping the future’, reflects the ICA’s vital role and the many new initiatives the association is embarking on for the future. These include the creation of individual working groups in various countries, attracting new members, increased training and reaching out to the entire chain through increased engagement and communication.’
The Dubai 2014 event has already attracted a great deal of interest, with ten cotton companies signed up as sponsors.
