Gilles Fontaine (President of Europatat)

The Europatat Congress has become a key date for the potato sector in Europe, and this year edition in Norway shows the growing importance of cooperating in a globalised market

Raquel Izquierdo de Santiago (Secretary General of Europatat)

This year we are looking at a very exotic edition of our Congress in Norway, a unique market for potatoes, that will provide a lot of insights for colleagues around Europe and beyond.

Gry Sørensen (Director of NFGF)

We are very excited to bring the Europatat Congress 2019 to Norway for the first time ever. With a panoramic view over the city of Oslo, we expect many interesting and inspiring discussions with the best qualified people from the potato sector in Europe.


The hotel booking is to be done by Conference participants themselves. We recommend that participants should book for their accommodation as early as possible in order to enjoy the special rates that the Holmenkollen Park Hotel is offering to us.

Conference participants may of course seek other accommodation.
