Being a sponsor of the 77th
Plenary Meeting is a unique opportunity because ICAC is the only intergovernmental body serving the cotton industry. That means sponsors will have their message delivered not only to growers, researchers and private-sector professionals, but also to hundreds of senior government officials. Multiple packages have been created to meet every company’s promotional needs and budget. To see the sponsorship packages being offered, please click here
Plenary Meeting is expected to draw more than 500 senior government officials, researchers and private-sector professionals from all sectors of the global cotton and textile value chains. The conference will also mark the debut of ICAC’s new attendee app, which can be downloaded to an iPhone or Android smartphone, or accessed via the Internet, once registration is completed. Users will be able to create their own customised programme, view information about sessions and speakers, instantly exchange contact information with other attendees, and more — all at the tap of a button.
