The National Potato Council is excited to announce that the Potato Expo 2025 will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida!

The Potato Expo was last held in Orlando in 2018. Based on a recent survey of attendees, Orlando is a top destination for Potato Expo attendees.

Not only are we excited to return to Orlando, our host hotel and convention space – the Orlando World Center Marriott – provides a first-class space to hold an event of our footprint.

The Orlando World Center Marriott offers a column-free 105,000-square-foot exhibit hall with direct access to breakout rooms, where we can create an Expo Hall footprint similar to 2024 and 2023. The hotel features 10 restaurants and lounges. It is located just one mile from Disney Springs, offering 69 dining options, 95 shops, and 25 attractions, shows, and events.

Registration will open in Fall 2024. See you in Florida!

"Potato Expo is like a snowball rolling downhill, gaining momentum, packing more snow as it goes, growing ever larger."
