IWTO Congress will be held in Australia, April 4 to 6. The event occurs about once every 10 years in Australia. The three-day event, one of the highlights of the wool industry calendar, will showcase the achievements of the Australian wool industry along with innovations in the global wool textile supply chain both on-farm and in processing.
More than 20 young wool professionals from eight countries will join the event this year, more than double the number of participants from previous years. This is because of a realization that youth, education and knowledge are the key to a successful wool industry for today and the future and that the younger generation is needed to keep the wool industry going through innovation, new technologies, creativity, training so as to ensure a sustainable future for all.
And IWTO Congress is also a great opportunity for the next generation to meet with all sections of the global and Australian wool industry. The idea is to develop the next generation of wool leadership.
Junior staff are invited to attend the Congress at a reduced fee, allowing them to build up their own networks while gaining first hand knowledge of the latest trends in the industry.
