Interpom 2020 Opening Days Changed
In order to comply with the social distancing measures that will undoubtedly still be in place this autumn due to COVID-19, Kortrijk Xpo has decided – with the support of Belgapom and various stakeholders – to reschedule Interpom 2020 from November 22-24 to November 23-25.
Sunday, which is usually the busiest day of the trade show (with 9,000 visitors and many family visits), will thus be replaced by Wednesday. This will help reduce crowd density, which means visitors will be spread more evenly over 3 very enriching professional days. Visitors will have to register in advance if they want to come on one of the three days of the event. This will allow the organization to limit the number of visitors per day and to control the flow of visitors in accordance with the limits that will be in place in November 2020.
The 20th edition of INTERPOM will therefore go ahead, but opening days will be changed and the event will comply with the COVID-19 health and safety measures.
INTERPOM is one of Europe’s most specialized indoor trade show for the entire potato sector, as it covers the entire chain (cultivation, processing, marketing). Together with the sector, the organization is looking forward to going ‘live’ again this autumn: holding face-to-face meetings, discovering new developments and contributing to every initiative that will keep things moving in the potato sector and business in the post-coronavirus world. The organization will take all the necessary precautions to facilitate contact and consultation between all parties involved in the potato chain in a safe environment.
