Belgium to Host First In-person European Potato Industry Event


Belgium will host INTERPOM in-person from Nov. 28 to 30, marking the first in-person event for the European potato industry since the pandemic started, Belgapom, the show organizer, says in a news release on May 21. The show’s theme is “Let’s reconnect the potato chain.”

The exiting news came after the most recent advisory committee meeting in Belgium. After a very long forced break, events such as trade fairs will be allowed to reopen their doors as of 30 July. This will be possible in a safe environment with a minimum of restrictions,” the release says.

INTERPOM’s 20th edition this year will be the first major indoor meeting for the European potato sector, the release notes. Belgium has listed trade fairs under trade protocol meaning as restrictions ease the same rules for shopping outlets apply to trade fairs.

INTERPOM is an indoor trade fair where the whole potato sector is represented from cultivation to processing and marketing. It is already 90 per cent sold out with 300 exhibitors from 14 countries, the release says. For updates visit INTERPOM’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
