TCGA Trade Show kicks off Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Cotton Ginners' Association expects around 2,000 people to take part in this year's trade show. Crews spent the past few days getting the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center ready to go.

Organizers say the goal is to show ginning equipment, but there are many other exhibitors as well. "It's the new technology and advanced technology that keeps us competitive in the global market," Aaron Nelsen with the TCGA said.

Nelsen says it's great to host the show in Lubbock, because we are the hub of the cotton belt. He also says the TCGA is excited about this year's crop. "There's been some good moisture fall, and I think this year the things that have happened, I think cotton will be more competitive with grain and corn, and we're looking for a good crop this year," says Nelson.

The trade show is free, and open to the public. It starts Thursday at 9:00 a.m. and lasts until 4:00 p.m. The show re-opens Friday at 9:00 a.m. and runs through 2:30 p.m.
