General registration is now open for one of the industry’s favourite events, the ICA annual trade event, which takes place on 20 & 21 October in Liverpool, UK.
‘Liverpool 2016’ will be an extra special affair, as it marks the ICA’s 175th anniversary, a significant milestone for the Association, its members and the entire cotton trade.
“It is a great honour for me to be President during such a landmark year,” says ICA President, Jean-Marc Derossis.
“The ICA’s history is bound by some of the world’s most momentous events – the Industrial Revolution, the growth of the railways, the transatlantic cable, the American Civil War and two world wars. All have played their part in shaping today’s ICA.
“And almost two centuries on, one constant thread remains and that is the ability of our members to work together, to react to new challenges, to adapt, survive, and ultimately prosper.
“This year’s event is a fantastic opportunity for us all to come together to celebrate our past, present and future and it seems only fitting that we hold it in Liverpool, where it all began 175 years ago. I know it will be an event to remember and I hope many will be able to join us.”
With plenty of networking opportunities and presentations from leading trade figures, Liverpool 2016 provides an ideal opportunity to do business and focus on current industry issues. There are also a few surprises in store, with something special planned for the closing gala dinner at St George’s Hall.
Liverpool 2016 is open to anyone with an interest in the cotton trade. Places are limited so the message is “book early” to guarantee your place.
