Idaho is pleased to host the 102nd Annual Meeting of the Potato Association of America at the Boise Centre, Boise, Idaho, USA from July 22 to 26, 2018. Please join us at the meeting to network and exchange the latest research, information and ideas to move potato science forward.  Interact with others from all aspects of the potato industry, tour Idaho agriculture, and experience Idaho outdoor activities and urban downtown fun.

Bring your family/accompanying person - there are many great activities to experience in Boise and the surrounding area. You are less than 3 hours away from Sun Valley, 4 hours to Craters of the Moon National Monument, and 6 hours to Yellowstone National Park by car.

The meeting will be held at the Boise Centre located in downtown Boise at 850 W. Front St. The host hotel is the Grove Hotel which is a very short walking distance to the Boise Centre. The President’s reception on Sunday July 22 and the Annual Banquet on Wednesday July 25 will be held overlooking the Boise area from the top of Jack’s Urban Meeting Place (JUMP). Join us Monday July 23 for an “Industry day” – selected topics, International guest speaker, and symposium on “Impact of Quarantined Pests on Potato Production”. An outdoor Basque Block Party with food and traditional dance will allow us to experience Idaho culture on Tuesday July 24. Agriculture Tour and whitewater rafting will be exciting options to explore Idaho on Thursday July 26.
