20th October, 2016
Thanks to all those who joined us at our Liverpool 2016 trade event:
The cotton world gathered in Liverpool from 20-21 October to celebrate our 175th anniversary. The event took place in Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel and was closed with a spectacular gala dinner in St George’s Hall.
Officially opened by HRH Princess Anne, 570 delegates from the global cotton community came together to take part in the two-day event, which saw top industry speakers take to the stage.
With a keynote session from Joe Nicosia, Senior Head at Louis Dreyfus Company, there was also plenty of opportunity for delegates to network and do business, something attendees say brings them back every year.
The event was closed with a theatrical production based on the ICA’s recently published book ‘The Story of Cotton’. Guests described it as “The best event ever” and “Simply stunning”.
