Tigran Richter (President Europatat)
“This year we are looking at a very interesting edition of our Congress in Poland, a very important market for potatoes. The Congress will provide a lot of substantive discussions for colleagues around Europe and beyond on the future of the potato trade given the current geopolitical and economic constraints.”
Tomasz Bieńkowski (President PPF)
“We are very excited to bring the Europatat Congress 2023 to Poland for the first time ever. Currently, we are the second largest producer of potatoes in the EU and the potato industry has a significant share in Polish food production, which annual turnover reaches several billion zlotys.”

About the musicians:
Gdansk Accordion Quaret is an ensamble founded by young polish accordionists: Maciej Kacprzak, Paweł Ratajek, Paweł Wiśniewski and Wojciech Ulanowski students and graduates of the Academy of Music in Gdańsk (Poland). These musicians are laureates of international accordion com petitions. The common interest in chamber music and enthusiasm for the possibilities four accordions can present are the main reasons for this quartet. The repertoire is a synthesis of music interests by all members.
Gdansk Accordion Quartet plays baroque music (J. S. Bach, A. Vivaldi), orchestral music (A. Dvorak, A. Khachaturian), Astor Piazzolla’s tango, jazz and film music (Amelie, Fiddler on the Roof). The combination of such distant styles gives a perfect picture of the accordion, and all of the listeners will be able to find something for themselves in the concert program!
