Co-chairmen, POTATO EXPO 2014 Steering Committee
elcome to San Antonio! On behalf of the
entire Steering Committee, we want to extend
a warm Texas greeting to all those joining
us at POTATO EXPO 2014. Whether you've attended
POTATO EXPO in the past or if this is your first event,
the largest potato industry conference and trade show
held in North America has something for everyone.
We have brought together a large cross-section of the
industry — growers, packers, shippers, and value chain
members — from the United States, Canada and around
the world. Only at POTATO EXPO can you interact with
more than 150 exhibitors and learn about the latest and
greatest technology, trends and equipment for the potato
industry. This afternoon, you can also choose from four
market-targeted breakout sessions to get the most current
information on a wide variety of industry issues and trends
for the chip, fresh, process and seed sectors.
