WHAT IS THE CONCEPT OF THE CONVENTION?
In a world of increasing globalisation, our unique Convention brings together two key elements of the potato industry, elements where value adding and quality are of paramount importance for business success. But the Convention is not limited to those two disciplines.
The emphasis is on International and business development, boosted by providing attendees with thought-provoking, business-building programmes of presentations and a unique, conducive atmosphere to mix with industry colleagues from around the world.
The focal point of the high quality programmes of presentations firmly illustrates this as a business development event and the added, very valuable, extensive networking opportunities with fellow industry professionals enhance the event's profile even further.
Responding to feedback, we continue to adapt the structure of the event to provide the industry with a rounded event full of opportunity across three days, plus added opportunities.
An accompanying small exhibition and a Technical Workshop programme add to the industry value of the Convention and the excellent networking/social programme for 2013 remains extremely high. You will leave the Convention with much industry information and some unique, great memories!
WILL IT BE WELL ATTENDED AND WORTH MY TIME?
The final numbers will only be known once the list of attendees is complete, but judging from industry feedback to our plans and the superb location, plus extended promotion in Potato Storage International, Potato Processing International and industry information sources, plus the fact that the industry is in a buoyant, expanding mode, we are certain attendance will be good!
With specific themed, dedicated Speaker Programmes, the real opportunity to network with new, international, like-minded industry colleagues, great value for money (with big discounts available for 'early bird' registrations), high quality catering, plus the great location, we believe you will conclude that it is most definitely worth attending.
But do not just take our word for it - ask around. There are many in the industry who could give you their impression of this very useful event that successfully continues after so many years.
