March 14, 2019
Date: March 14th, 2019, 12:30pm to 5:30pm | Location: Intercontinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC – China
Responding to industry demand, CottonConnect and Textile Exchange are bringing together leading industry professionals, from organic cotton producers to retailers, for an event specifically focused on organic cotton demand and supply in China. By exploring and sharing practical experiences, this compact platform will help you acquire the latest knowledge to support your organic cotton strategy in China.
The event has been scheduled to coincide with the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel and Fabrics Exhibition. The Regional Organic Round Table (rOCRT-China) will focus on two key topics:
Part 1: How to increase organic cotton supply in China
In Part 1, CottonConnect and Textile Exchange will share the goals for the Roundtable and the challenges of growing organic cotton in China. You will hear stories from a farmer and industry experts. There will also be an opportunity to get involved in a breakout discussion about the essentials of scaling organic cotton production in China.
Part 2: How to create a wider market for organic cotton products
In Part 2, we will share the perspective of global sourcing of organic cotton. One of the Chinese brands will outline the organic cotton retail market in China, and one of the spinners/ suppliers will discuss connecting demand and supply. The second breakout session will explore building a market for organic cotton in China.
Participation to the rOCRT-China is by invitation only. If you are interested to attend, please contact Evonne@TextileExchange.org.
