Facts & Figures

2022 – Decoding cotton on-site and online!

Under the motto ‘Cotton Decoded‘, the 36th Bremen International Cotton Conference will take place on September 29 and 30, 2022, both on site in Bremen and online. The year 2022 is a very special year for the Bremen Cotton Exchange: we are celebrating our 150th anniversary. Together with the Faserinstitut Bremen (FIBRE), we are therefore particularly pleased to welcome our guests back to Bremen. Nevertheless, we have decided to maintain at the same time the innovative platform solution introduced in March 2021 to enable digital participation as well.

The meeting place for the international cotton community will again be one of Bremen’s historic buildings: This time we will convene in the Bremen Chamber of Commerce in the centre of the old Hanseatic city. The building is located almost next door of the Cotton Exchange and the Town Hall on the market square.

Experts from the global textile value chain will come together and be given a forum for scientifically sound and practically usable new insights into key issues of cotton production, cotton quality, textile processing, innovative cotton products and the all-connecting chain.

As this is the anniversary year of the Cotton Exchange, we would like to celebrate this with as many people as possible. That is why we are offering a sensationally low participation fee for the 2022 conference.

The organizers of the International Cotton Conference

Bremer Baumwollbörse / Bremen Cotton Exchange
  • Founded in 1872 to strengthen the interests of the cotton trade and processing in Germany, the now BBB has been in the cotton business for 148 years. As an international arbitration body, the Bremer Baumwollbörse stands for neutrality as a matter of principle.
  • We offer various services for our members. Clear, neutral data and analyses are part of this.
  • Together with the International Cotton Associaton from Liverpool and in cooperation with the Faserinstitut Bremen e.V. we offer as ICA Bremen the International Quality Testing and Research Centre in Bremen. The Hanseatic City is now the international center for cotton testing and research, quality training and certification.
  • We represent our members in the most important international bodies of the cotton world
Faserinstitut Bremen e.V. / FIBRE Bremen e.V.
  • In its almost 66-year history, the institute has developed from a cotton testing laboratory into a successful research institute at the University of Bremen for future-oriented fibers, technical textiles and fiber composites. It deals with fundamental scientific as well as application-oriented issues along the entire process chain from fiber production to the manufacture of fiber composite components for the aircraft industry, among others.
  • FIBRE’s central international importance in cotton is demonstrated by the international harmonization of cotton testing (e.g. round robin tests in cooperation with ICAC and USDA-AMS), by central committee work (ICAC Committee on Standardized Instrument Testing of Cotton (CSITC), ITMF Cotton Testing Committee), and by the forward-looking cooperation with ICA-Bremen (accredited cotton testing laboratory, laboratory certification, training courses, cotton research).
