Event Status Information
The 8th world Potato Congress will be held from May 27 - May 30, 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Think global. Win local.

World Potato Congress (WPC) is a 'must attend' event for anyone involved with the potato supply chain from producers to policy makers.

It gives you the chance to hear expert speakers on issues that really matter and to meet like-minded people from every part of the potato industry and every part of the world. People who want to share ideas to improve potato production and demand.

That's why the 2012 Congress is titled 'Think global. Win local' - focusing on key global issues, but also translating them into practical actions relevant wherever potatoes are produced or consumed.

And all this is happening in one of the world's most amazing Congress cities, Edinburgh. Famous for its scenery, culture and welcome.

PotatoPro is proud to be an official international media partner of the World Potato Congress

We look forward to seeing you there!
