Potato Expo Returns to Pre-pandemic Levels


The 15th annual Potato Expo hosted more than 1,800 potato growers and industry members from a dozen countries during the two-day event in Aurora, Colo., a Jan. 11 news release said. This year’s event, which ran from Jan. 4-5, had the highest ever attendance, breaking records set in Las Vegas, Nev. with 1,816 registered attendees and 175 exhibitors.

“The tremendous support of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors at this year’s event is evidence that Potato Expo is back to its pre-pandemic status as the premier gathering for the North American potato industry,” Jared Balcom, current National Potato Council (NPC) president and potato grower from Pasco, Wash.

Potato Expo is ran by the NPC. Next year’s conference will be held in Austin, Texas on Jan. 10 to 11. More information can be found on the Potato Expo website.
