International Potato Technology Expo Announces Conference Program


The International Potato Technology Expo will feature sessions on the post-pandemic world and crop diversity in potato rotations, a March 8 news release says.

The conference and trade show is happening on March 30 to 31 at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown, P.E.I. It had originally been scheduled for Feb. 24 and 25, but was rescheduled to March due to a number of factors.

The release notes the conference program runs both days with experts from academia, businesses and government. Speakers include Christine Noronha and Kyra Stiles. The full schedule is posted on the Expo’s website.

The trade show will feature products on display such as harvesters, sprayers, pilers, cultivators, storage and climatization technology, tractors, machinery, seed cutters, plant genetics, seeds, bagging equipment, and more. There will also be a variety of show-only specials and new products debuting on the trade show floor, the release says.

Pre-registration is now open, with the release noting registration has been going strong. Registration is $10 in advance or $20 at the door. Pre-registration passes can be purchased online.

“It’s encouraging to see the pre-registration numbers grow these past few weeks,” Shawn Murphy, show manager, says in the release. “It goes to show that people are excited to connect with other industry members again and test new products and technologies that have emerged in the past two years, in-person.”

The trade show runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 30 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 31.
