Potatoes invade Yorkshire spa town

“Two years accelerate by at pace, nothing stands still,” says Rob Clayton AHDB Potatoes’ Strategy Director. This month the whole potato industry heads again to Harrogate 12 & 13 November, for BP2015. “It’s not only the venue of Harrogate International Centre and the brand new companies that are exhibiting that’s different. The £4.1bn potato industry continually becomes leaner, more specialist and business-like.

“We are grateful for Branston and Grimme’s support as gold sponsors. This bespoke event is all about cementing relationships, seeing innovation and production launches and learning from others, either in the expert-led seminars and panel debates, from conversations on one of the 200 stands or in the bar after the industry dinner.”

For the first time it’s a genuinely indoor affair with our all machinery specialists and exhibitors sheltered from the November weather.

“We’re particularly extending our welcome to our youngsters,” says Dr Philip Burgess AHDB Potatoes’ head of Knowledge Transfer. “Whether part of our Next Generation programme, one of our PhD students or one of our day-trippers joining us from Agricultural courses around the country, these are two days in which you can talk, listen and get to grips with the opportunities and enthusiasm that go hand in hand with the potato sector.”

The Potato Industry Dinner
The renowned industry dinner takes place at the spectacular, Harrogate Royal Hall at the end of the first day provides the perfect environment to unwind with friends and colleagues, network or to entertain valuable guests. Individual tickets and tables can be booked at

Seasoned sports commentator Nick Mullins is primed to deliver the after dinner speech. Nick will bring a relaxed humour and unrivalled insight into his work at numerous sporting events. The most topical being the Rugby World Cup, where, as the lead commentator for ITV, he has had access to every team.
