Europatat Congress 2020

Cancellation

Following the escalation of COVID-19 crisis in Europe, the Europatat Congress 2020 will be cancelled.


Europatat, the European Potato Trade Association, regrets to inform that the Europatat Congress 2020, scheduled to take place on 11 and 12 June in Brussels, will be cancelled following the escalation of COVID-19 crisis in Europe.

For Europatat, the safety and wellbeing of the Congress' participants, speakers and partners is its number one priority. Europatat is also aware of the fact that over the last few weeks the coronavirus outbreak has caused widespread disruption to businesses around the world, and not least to companies involved in the trade of agricultural products.

Following the emergency measures taken by EU Member States, agri-food business are reporting increasing difficulties in their daily operations. The potato sector faces thus a difficult time and will have many priorities to address over the coming months and across the rest of the year.

Raquel Izquierdo de Santiago, Managing Director of Europatat:

“The situation is changing rapidly around Europe, and unfortunately not with the best prospects for our event. We had worked in earnest and with much enthusiasm on this year's theme around digitalisation, but unfortunately, the circumstances confronting us are out of everyone's control.”
The next Europatat Congress will take place on 30 and 31 May 2021 in Dublin, Ireland, within the framework of the World Potato Congress (WPC) 2021, which will be held from 31 May to 3 June.

The WPC expects to gather 1,000 participants from all across the globe, including growers, researchers, producers, traders, processors and manufacturers. Both the Europatat Congress and the WPC will become a week-long focus on the potato, the third most important food crop in terms of global consumption.

Further details about the Europatat Congress 2021 will be published on www.europatacongress.eu in the coming months.
