First International GOTS Conference to Be Held in Mumbai

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is proud to announce its 1st International GOTS Conference: Strong Partnerships for Success, to be held Friday, May 22, 2015, in Mumbai, India.

Companies representing the entire organic textile supply chain will learn about brand and manufacturer experiences with GOTS, as well as the role of local and international policy. India is the largest producer of organic cotton (approximately 70 per cent of world production) and is also home to the largest number of GOTS-certified processing facilities. More than 1,300 GOTS certified facilities are in India representing more than one-third (approximately 35 percent) of the total number of GOTS certified facilities worldwide.

"We are looking forward to educating and stimulating the textile world about GOTS, and providing vital networking opportunities from the epicenter of the organic textile world," says Sumit Gupta, conference coordinator and GOTS representative in India and Bangladesh.

The participation of leading brands, suppliers, and the Indian government will provide excellent networking opportunities, and will also help to create successful partnerships including extensive buyer-seller opportunities.

Information about the conference, including the agenda, registration, and sponsorship, is available here. Attendees should plan their travel and visas well in advance. The Early Bird registration offer ends March 31.
