Once again, the Washington State Potato Commission (WSPC) and Oregon Potato Commission have joined forces in the planning and execution of the 2015 Washington/Oregon Potato Conference.

The event will be held at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, Washington, Jan. 27-29.

This is the sixth year the two commissions have teamed up, and the venue continues to be well attended.

The Washington-Oregon Potato Conference is one of the premier potato shows in North America, Ryan Holterhoff, director of marketing and industry affairs for WSPC, told The Produce News.

"Each year, we are able to provide a lineup of speakers that have relevant topics and who cover timely issues that the industry cares about. Everyone who is able to attend the 2015 Washington-Oregon Potato Conference will truly be satisfied with the time they spend at the show. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to visit nearly 150 vendors to see what is new for the 2015 season."

Ryan Holterhoff expects about 1800 attendees at the Washington-Oregon potato conference, a slight increase over last year.
