With the continued concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, the National Cotton Council will replace the in-person 2021 Beltwide Cotton Conference in New Orleans, LA with a fully virtual meeting January 5 through 7 (Tuesday through Thursday). Paper and presentation requests will be handled similarly to previous Conferences utilizing Confex technology to assist with session organization.

The virtual platform, utilizing existing on-line meeting technology, will include three days of live-streamed individual reports and panel discussions from the technical sessions along with poster presentations and seminars designed to provide attendees with information they need to help producers make key cotton production/marketing-related decisions. More information on the virtual meeting details will be available in the coming weeks.
