2022 – Decoding cotton on-site and online!

With the motto ‘Cotton Decoded’ the 36th International Cotton Conference Bremen will take place on September 29 and 30, 2022 on site in Bremen as well as online. 2022 is a very special year for the Bremen Cotton Exchange who is celebrating its 150th anniversary. Together with the Faserinstitut Bremen (FIBRE) we are therefore particularly pleased to welcome our guests back to Bremen. Nonetheless we decided to keep the innovative platform solution that was introduced in March 2021 to enable digital participation as well.

The meeting place for the international cotton community will once again be one of Bremen’s historic buildings: This time it is the Chamber of Commerce in the center of the old Hanseatic city.

Specialists from the worldwide textile value chain will come together and will be provided a forum for scientifically founded and practically useful new insights into key issues surrounding cotton production, cotton quality, textile processing, innovative cotton-based products and the chain connecting all.

Since it is the Cotton Exchange’s anniversary year, we hope to celebrate this with as many people as possible. That’s why we offer you 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).
