International Potato Technology Expo 2012
10th edition of the International Potato Technology Expo a Success!
The International Potato Technology Expo has come and gone, but reminded visitors that the planting and growing season was not all that far away and introduced to them to some of the most innovative products and equipment available on the market today.
3157 visitors made their way to the Charlottetown Civic Centre February 24-25, 2012, to take a look at the latest and greatest equipment available to potato producers. This is an increase of 5% over 2010, which included a huge jump in pre-registration. With over 100 booths and aisles of gleaming equipment and essential products and services on display, no one went away disappointed.
The Trade Show was complimented by a topical and relevant seminar program which was well received and attended, and we would like to thank all of our speakers for a job well done.
We would like to thank our major sponsors for this year’s event including Syngenta and Farm Credit of Canada. In addition, we would like to thank the PEI Department of Agriculture for their ongoing support of the event, United Phosphorus, the 2012 attendee bag sponsor and the Port of Halifax, which graciously sponsored the VIP Reception.
Stay tuned for more information about the International Potato Expo set for February 2014.
