Programme

Four Themes Focusing on One Goal: #AcceleratingImpact


We’ll be exploring topics with a clear lens on impact: From how we drive impact at field-level to how we measure it. With farmers and farm workers at the centre, we’re excited to gather retail and supply chain actors alongside other key stakeholders to work together in building a more sustainable future for cotton farming communities.

The schedule will blend plenary meetings with breakout sessions, panels and interactive workshops. All plenary sessions will be streamed live for the online conference audience.

Agenda


We have an exciting schedule planned. Our welcome reception will take place in an inspiring space located opposite the hotel. We will be hosting our networking dinner on a Bosphorus Cruise with live entertainment, local cuisine and networking.

This year’s conference is all about ‘Accelerating Impact’. Our four themes are: Putting People First, Driving Change at Field Level, Understanding Policy and Industry Trends, and Reporting on Data and Traceability.
