Thank you to everybody who joined us at our ‘Hong Kong 2012' trade event - we hope you enjoyed it.
More than 1,000 delegates from the global cotton community visited Hong Kong to take part in the two day event, which was hosted by ICA President, Mr Antonio Esteve and held at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) on 1/2 November 2012.
Over the course of the two days, eleven high profile industry speakers took to the stage to deliver a range of presentations that were based on the ‘growing together’ event theme.
