The 2022 Potato Expo will be in person. National Potato Council Vice President of Industry Relations and Events Hollee Alexander says relationships are important in the potato industry. This year’s expo is all about making the potato industry’s business more vibrant and re-engaging with others. The schedule is similar to previous years with a trade show, potato talks and breakout sessions. “It will be an experience attendees are familiar with with the exception of a few modifications.” That includes no keynote lunch speaker. The National Potato Council will also not be meeting in conjunction with the Potato Expo. CEO Kam Quarles says the annual meeting is now connected to a Washington D.C. Summit held in February/March. That doesn’t mean there won’t be breakout sessions on farm policy and how that affects business. “We’ve been working closely with Potatoes USA to have an economics team look at all of the issues surrounding inflation and the supply chain. They’ll roll out a study on what the potato industry can expect for input pricing and availability in 2022.” The 2022 Potato Expo will be held on January 5 and 6 in Anaheim. Hear more.
