The 10th World Potato Congress goes May 27-31 in Cusco, Peru, the first time the Congress will be held in South America.
The 10th World Potato Congress (WPC) and the XXVIII Latin American Potato Association (ALAP) Congress is the industry’s most important scientific event worldwide. It is an excellent showcase to promote the sustainable use of potato biodiversity (with a focus on native varieties), including how to differentiate it on the market and mine its gastronomic uses with varieties related to health and nutrition. It will serve as a food security platform and the development of business ventures.
It is anticipated 800-900 delegates, from developing and developed countries — including growers, researchers, producers, traders, processors and manufacturers — will attend the conference.
Delegates will also have opportunities to visit local growing and producing facilities. Pre- and post-congress tour options will offer delegates unique opportunities for exposure to the Cusco region as well as the enchanting city of Lima. Machu Picchu is just a couple of hours away by train.
