Postponement of the 35th International Cotton Conference Bremen
The 35th International Cotton Conference Bremen with the motto “Passion for Cotton” will take place from 17 to 19 March 2021.
The 35th International Cotton Conference was to take place from 25 to 27 March. The coronavirus has been keeping the world on tenterhooks for some weeks now and has also arrived in Germany and Bremen. As the organiser of an international conference, we have been forced to make a decision and it was by no means easy for us.
Due to the prevailing global threat from Covid-19, the organiser are postpone the 35th International Cotton Conference Bremen for one year.
The World Health Authority (WHO), as well as the European and German health authorities are advising of significant health risks from transmission of the coronavirus. According to the Federal Foreign Office, data on the new virus is currently still limited, which makes risk assessment even more difficult.
“The International Cotton Conference Bremen has an exceptionally good reputation. The high standard of the lectures, the intensive panel discussions and the active networking inside and outside the Town Hall – none of this would have been possible against the backdrop of the current virus problem”, say the organiser Bremen Cotton Exchange and Bremen Fibre Institute.
More than 40 nations travel to the conference
In total, participants from more than 40 nations travel to Bremen for the Cotton Conference. In addition to the main conference, there are numerous side events. Many of our guests and conference participants are currently unsettled by the many negative reports. In the context of their responsibility, the organisers, the Bremen Cotton Exchange and the Fibre Institute Bremen, take the risks and concerns of all participants extremely seriously and would like to ensure planning reliability given the situation.
