BWCC Ginning Conference
Features High-Tech Applications

  print email

This year’s Beltwide Cotton Ginning Conference is scheduled for Jan. 3-6 in Orlando, Fla., and will feature high-tech applications to everyday ginning solutions. Everything from on-board, picker-built modules, automated bagging systems, smartphone applications for gin management and using facial recognition software for employee issues will be discussed by experts in the field.

Technology is becoming more and more economical and can easily be integrated into the gin. This is a great opportunity for gin managers to learn about these technologies and to determine what place they have in the gin. The Ginning Conference also provides a forum for ginners, researchers and industry representatives to exchange ideas and renew acquaintances.

The Ginning Conference, of course, will be only part of an impressive program that will be conducted for several days. Attendees also will want to visit the Cotton Foundation’s Technical Exhibits, if possible.

We hope you make plans to attend. For registration and hotel information, interested parties are invited to visit http://www.cotton.org/beltwide/.
