Textile Exchange’s Organic Cotton Round Table (OCRT) has evolved to become THE shared space for the organic cotton community to gather and collaborate. In 2017, the concept of the Regional OCRT was born, with the inaugural event held in Izmir in April 2017. The day brought together more than 100 experts from across the whole organic cotton value chain (access the Highlights Report and video here). We are pleased to announce that the next Regional OCRT Izmir will be held on 10th & 11th May 2018 during the 9th EKOLOJİ Trade Show, hosted and sponsored by our collaboration partner, İZFAŞ. The aim of the event is to strengthen and grow the organic cotton sector in Turkey, Egypt and Central Asia.
