Thirty-seven delegates from all sectors of the global cotton industry recently completed the International Cotton Association’s (ICA) annual Complete Cotton training program.
The training – which took place in April in Liverpool, UK – featured 19 industry experts delivering a series of 20 training modules over 10 days. Subjects covered the complexities of the cotton industry, from growing to spinning.
During the training, the delegates also had the opportunity to network, socialize and explore the sights of Liverpool. They attended several specially-sponsored events, including dinner at the Maritime Museum at Liverpool’s UNESCO waterfront site, a trip to Anfield (home to Liverpool Football Club) and a visit to Quarry Bank Mill, which was founded in 1784 and is now restored as a fully working cotton mill and museum.
“Complete Cotton remains one of the industry’s top training programs,” said Kai Hughes, ICA managing director. “It has provided an excellent grounding for many of today’s key players in the cotton world. This year’s course was another sell-out, with 100 percent of the delegates rating it as excellent/good.”
“We will be running Complete Cotton again in 2016,” he added. “If you are involved in the cotton industry – in whatever shape or form – my advice is to sign up now.”
Registration information for the 2016 Complete Cotton program is available on the ICA website.
