WPC announces congress host countries for the 2026 and 2028 events

As the world shares its stories of celebration around the first International Day of Potato, and as we set our sights on the 12th World Potato Congress to be held in Adelaide, Australia, the WPC is pleased to announce the locations of the 13th and 14th World Potato Congress events.

The Polish Potato Federation is honored to have been chosen to host the 13th Congress in Poland. The picturesque city of Gdansk, located on the Baltic coast, will be the host city for the esteemed World Potato Congress event. Set to take place in late June 2026, this global event will shine a spotlight on Poland's thriving potato industry and the surrounding potato-growing regions.

The Polish Potato Federation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and advancing the interests of the Polish potato industry. Representing growers, processors, researchers, and other stakeholders, the Federation works to enhance the competitiveness, sustainability, and resilience of the potato sector in Poland and beyond. "Poland's potato-growing regions are emblematic of the resilience and adaptability of the people of Poland as well as their potato industry," says WPC President Peter VanderZaag.

Originally planned for Nairobi, Kenya in 2026, the WPC Board and the organizing committee in Kenya agree that more time is needed to facilitate the details around a Congress in Kenya. As such, discussions are currently underway with the Kenya team suggesting the possibility of hosting this biennial event sometime after the 2028 Congress.
