Global cotton sustainability conference moves to 2 – 4 march 2021*

The decision to postpone the 2020 Global Cotton Sustainability Conference was not taken lightly, but the BCI Leadership Team agreed it is the most responsible approach given the current situation regarding Coronavirus COVID-19 and its global impact on health and travel.

Same Location. Same Agenda. Same Networking. New Dates

The 2020 Global Cotton Sustainability Conference will now take place on 2 – 4 March 2021* in Lisbon, Portugal. 

"The spread of coronavirus will have an ongoing impact all over the world, and affect the entire BCI community, including members, staff, partners and other stakeholders. The situation now requires a significant step-up in the BCI management response. We need to face an unprecedented crisis with unprecedented solutions. It is inspiring to see how quickly, and with a deep sense of engagement, our stakeholders, partners and team members have stepped up to the plate and embraced new ways of working and living in order to continue delivering on their commitments. With this level of engagement, we feel confident about the sustainable cotton community’s ability to meet the challenges of this period of crisis and uncertainty, and emerge stronger."??– Alan McClay, CEO, BCI.

The conference will deliver the same programme to address issues across the entire cotton supply chain, offering inspiring speakers from farm to fashion, and networking with leaders from across the cotton sustainability sector. 

The BCI General Assembly and BCI Council elections will be conducted virtually on 9 June 2020, as scheduled. We will share the online registration and connection details soon.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this conference date change might cause. In the coming weeks, more information will be shared, and up-to-date information is always available online at www.globalcotton.org. We hope you can join us in Portugal on 2-4 March 2021*.

*BCI intends to postpone the conference to 2 - 4 March 2021, with final arrangements currently under review. We are providing advance notice, so you can make arrangements for attending now. Pending venue confirmation, logistics may be subject to change.
