The National Cotton Council and its cooperating partners welcome all to the 2016 Beltwide Cotton Conferences January 5 through 7 (Tuesday through Thursday) at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel in New Orleans, LA. Three days of individual reports, panel discussions, hands on workshops and seminars are designed to provide attendees with information they need to help producers make key cotton production/marketing-related decisions. A dynamic program, along with the opportunity to network with peers from across the Cotton Belt, separate this conference from all others in agriculture. This conference will be educational, as well as enjoyable. Come, learn and experience all the sites and attractions that New Orleans has to offer. Mark your calendar and plan to attend.
