2018 IWTO Wool Round Table (updated October 30, 2018)

December 3 - December 4

The IWTO Wool Round Table will take place  December 3 – 4, 2018 in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina with working group meetings on December 2.

Argentina’s 30000 farmers and 12.2 million sheep produce around 2 % of the world’s raw wool. 70 % of Argentina’s wool, grown on Merino and Corriedale sheep, measures 24-25 microns and is used in apparel.

At this Wool Round Table we will hear from both local and global wool experts and gain insight into what makes Argentina one of the world’s foremost wool-producing countries.

Join the wool textile industry 3-4 December 2018  in Buenos Aires for the IWTO Wool Round Table.

With a focus on wool production in Argentina, speakers from local industry will offer insight into one of the foremost wool producing countries of the world.

Open to all IWTO members, the Wool Round Table is an excellent opportunity to participate in the industry and to network with other professionals from all parts of the supply chain.

Working group meetings will take place Sunday, 2 December. View the Programme here.

Accommodation and Travel: The Wool Round Table will take place at the Recoleta Grand Hotel. Delegates will receive a link via their confirmation email to make the hotel booking directly.  More details on Hotel and Travel in the menu to the left.

The event takes place in the Recoleta Grand Hotel https://www.recoletagrand.com/en in the fashionable district of the same name.

We hope you are planning to join us in December or have even already registered. Please note that, as usual, we have negotiated a special hotel room rate for those who are attending the event, but this rate will expire on November 2, 2018.

So if you are planning to join us in Buenos Aires, please make your hotel booking this week.

All conference sessions and pre-event meetings will take place at the Recoleta Grand Hotel.

Special note: a meeting of the G20 will be taking place in Buenos Aires around the same time as our event, so hotel space will be at a premium.

We will start each day with a wool run, walk or pool-side yoga and are organising a post-event visit to Trelew, full details TBC.
