We spend a large part of our lives in cotton. We have surrounded ourselves
for centuries with this wonderful natural fibre. We sleep in it and live in it.
Cotton is one of the most important fibres in the clothing industry. Cindy
Crawford once said "I am a product that everybody wants". We can also
say the same for cotton. But does the consumer see it the same way?
The International Cotton Conference Bremen began in the 1950's and
dealt exclusively with matters of cotton testing, before developing over the
years to include more and more on cotton production and the next stages of the
textile chain. In 2014, for the first time, a change in perspective is taking
- What does the consumer expect?
- How can the cotton and
textile industries meet these expectations?
- What exactly makes cotton a
unique fibre in the eyes of the people all around the world?
In Bremen we will provide the answers: Analyses, findings, research results and
solutions will be presented and discussed on everything from cotton growing
through processing and equipment to the everyday comfort. Sustainability in
production, textile processing and the use of clothing, which is becoming
increasingly important for the end consumer, will also be looked at.
In keeping with tradition, the 32nd International Cotton Conference Bremen will
take place from 19 to 21 March 2014 at the medieval Town Hall in the Hanseatic
City of Bremen, Germany. The Bremen Conference is a unique meeting opportunity
for people from all sides of the cotton business, from the cotton seed producer
to the retailer. Meetings of various international organisations such as ICAC ,
ITMF and CICCA also contribute to the Conference, as well as social events such
as the famous "Bremer Abend".
