Potato Expo to Go Fully Virtual


The Potato Expo has decided it will be a full virtual event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee says in a news release.

The Potato Expo was set to take place on Jan. 5 to Jan. 7, 2021 in Grapevine, Texas and was going to be a joint in-person and virtual experience. The conference will still take place over the same days online.

The news release says the organizing committee took part in thoughtful discussions with its Executive Committee and supporting companies, and received feedback through attendee surveys before coming to the decision to host the event completely online.

The Potato Expo says it is excited for the opportunities a virtual event offers for providing insights into new technology and innovation in the potato industry. There will still be a networking component to the virtual event, along with an interactive exhibit hall to allow exhibitors to showcase their products and services.

The conference agenda will now be spread out over three tight days to ensure content is delivered in more digestible segments, the release notes. Sessions will be available on-demand for conference attendees until the end of March.
