Exceptional networking opportunities. Hundreds of prominent cotton industry decision-makers from Asia, Europe and Latin America will join U.S. cotton fiber export leadership at the Sourcing USA Summit. More than 400 top-tier U.S. cotton merchants and textile manufacturers attended the last Sourcing USA Summit. The majority (89 percent) of buyers said that they were likely to increase their purchases of U.S. cotton over the next year as a result of attending the Summit.

A history of success. Networking at the Summit leads to directly to U.S. cotton sales. U.S. exporters and international textile mills said they anticipate sales of 4.2 million bales of U.S. cotton, valued at around $1.4 billion, within six months of the previous Summit.
