What to Expect at Potato Expo 2022
Potato Expo 2022 is a live, in-person event being held in Anaheim, Calif. More than 160 exhibitors, growers, U.S. and global industry, and industry partners will join us in Anaheim, January 5-6.
The health and safety of the potato industry is important to us. Potato Expo continues to monitor guidelines for health safety measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state of California, and Orange County. Potato Expo will follow applicable federal, state and local laws, adapting plans accordingly and sharing updates with you and other Potato Expo audiences.
We will continue to evaluate and expand our health safety protocols as medical recommendations evolve and will update this page in accordance.
Below is information on what you can expect when you arrive in Anaheim for Potato Expo.
Fully vaccinated attendees are not required to wear a mask.
Unvaccinated attendees are required to wear a mask indoors, except while eating and drinking. Masks are not required at outdoor events such as the Beer Garden and the Food Truck Festival. This is in accordance with guidelines from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
Proof of Vaccination or Negative COVID Test Result
Attendees of the Potato Expo are required to provide either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-9 test taken with 72 hours of arriving at Potato Expo. This is in accordance with guidelines from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for mega events such as Potato Expo.
To simplify and speed up badge pickup at Potato Expo, we will use a secure, third party platform to collect proof of vaccination. Once you have provided your proof of vaccination and picked up your badge, you will not need to verify your vaccination status again.
Potato Expo has partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to provide quick and easy proof of vaccination or negative test results for U.S. based attendees. For the most efficient entry into Potato Expo possible, all registrants should sign up for CLEAR and complete their COVID-19 proof of vaccination as soon as possible, but at least 24 hours before arriving at badge pick up locations. If providing proof of a negative test, sign up in advance then upload the results as soon as they arrive.
Download the CLEAR app from the Apple App Store or the Android App Store. In the app, you will need to verify your identity and upload a picture of your vaccination card or test result. Then, sometime no later than December 21, Potato Expo will send you a specific link for our event so you can get a QR code you will show at the Potato Expo registration desk indicating you are cleared to attend.
Details on international attendees will be available soon.
