Potato Expo Virtual Pt 2

I’m Bob Larson. The 2021 Potato Expo is next week and, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s being held virtually through an online format the National Potato Council says is easy to use from the comfort of your own home or office.


CEO Kam Quarles says the Expo should give you that live, you-are-there feeling …


QUARLES … “Even though we’re all going to be sitting in our offices individually or at home, the feel of this is really going to be recreating that physical event and that’s kind of the trick that we have.”


And just like the LIVE Potato Expo, Vice President of

Industry Relations, Hollee Alexander says all the usual events will be there …


ALEXANDER … “We have a great lineup of speakers. We have seven general sessions where we’ll talk about everything from public policy to the future of credit to the new consumer, supply chain innovation, trends in farming technology.”


And, if you’re worried that virtual means disconnected, Alexander says, don’t …


ALEXANDER … “All these sessions will have the ability to interact with the speakers through either a combination of live Q&A or Q&A chatting. It’ll be easier to connect with the speakers in this virtual format because they’ll be able to answer questions all throughout the session.”
