Registration is now open for our next major trade event – ‘Liverpool 2013’ – which takes place on the 24/25 October in Liverpool, UK.
In an all new conference venue, the Hilton Hotel, and the magnificent surroundings of St George’s Hall, ‘Liverpool 2013’ is expected to attract 500 delegates from the global cotton community, providing an ideal opportunity to network, do business and focus on current industry issues.
Speaking ahead of the event, ICA President, Ahmed Elbosaty explains: “It is a great privilege to be President of the ICA and to have the opportunity to host ‘Liverpool 2013’. Our annual trade event is undoubtedly one of the industry’s most historic events and a highlight in the cotton calendar. As an international President, having the event return to a city which is so significant in the history of cotton is something which I am really looking forward to.
“With the theme ‘stronger together’, we aim to build on the success of our 2012 event in Hong Kong. We have another comprehensive and interactive programme planned that will focus on how the supply chain can expect more positive results if it sticks together. I hope you can join us for what promises to be a great event and an ideal platform for you to network, socialise and do business.”
