A notable convention will be in the Hub City this week.

The 106th Annual Texas Cotton Ginners’ Association Convention and Trade Show will be held in Lubbock on Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

More than 3,000 people are expected to attend the TCGA’s 106th Annual Cotton Convention and Trade Show at the Civic Center.

The Cotton Trade Show is open to the public from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday. Admission is free.

The trade show has an estimated economic impact of nearly $127,000 to Lubbock.

“The TCGA Annual Convention and Trade Show is the best opportunity for cotton ginners and growers to see the latest technology available to assist them in running a productive, efficient, and profitable business,” said Tony Williams, executive vice president of the Texas Cotton Ginners’ Association.

The group’s theme for this year’s convention is “TCGA: An Important Link to Texas Cotton,” which is to reflect on how TCGA works with other industry organizations, associations, and governments to address the common problems of the cotton industry.
