Bremen’s market square is considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. The town hall, together with Bremen’s Roland statue, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But also the St. Petri Cathedral and the Parliament have exciting stories to tell. In the middle of it all are our two conference venues, the Chamber of Commerce and the Bremen Cotton Exchange, which are among the jewels of Hanseatic architecture.

The Chamber of Commerce

The Cotton Conference will be held both on-site in Bremen and, as with the last International Cotton Conference, on a conference platform online. On the occasion of our anniversary, this time we have chosen the rooms of the historic Bremen Chamber of Commerce. Just like the town hall, where we have traditionally held our meetings in previous years, the Chamber of Commerce is located on Bremen’s market square directly in the centre of the Hanseatic city.

The Chamber of Commerce is about 20 meters away in almost direct proximity to the Bremen Cotton Exchange. Popularly known as the “Schütting”, it was built between 1538 and 1756 and served as a guildhall for Bremen’s merchants in the Middle Ages. The historic building is still the home of Bremen’s merchants and the seat of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce.

The magnificent interiors with their precious Renaissance-style furnishings will be the backdrop for our cotton conference for two days. The old significance of a guild house for merchants will be brought back to life by cotton travelers from all over the world. We are looking forward to it.
