Events | PPC106

PestEx is back!

That's right, after an unexpected three-year break (thanks to an infamous little virus that's been going around, you might have heard of it?) we're finally heading back to London this year.

We’ve been working hard to create a seminar programme to entice you all to our biggest live event, and with our new Spotlight Theatre we think we’ve cracked it. 

We wanted to put you right at the heart of our PestEx agenda, which is why we invited pest controllers to present in the Spotlight Theatre. People will showcase their work, sharing case studies about how they dealt with difficult sites, customers and species. 

In the same spirit, our trusty old Technical Theatre is chock full of topics that you requested.

There are sessions from pest management consultants, doctors and professors from universities sharing their studies and research projects, representatives from associated sectors and some really technical nitty gritty for those science fans out there!

The other half of PestEx is our fantastic exhibition hall, and our 80+ exhibitors have been busy working on new products, organising fun competitions and putting together exclusive offers.

We’ve got a sneak peek of a new project we’re working on for training, which we’re really excited to share with you. On top of that, we’ve some new staff members for you to meet, so please come along and say hello!

Make your way around the hall and take in all that they have to offer, because without their support this event wouldn’t be possible!

BPCA’s stand has some fun things too! We’re running a ‘PROtect at PestEx’ reaction game with some great prizes up for grabs, including a PS5 bundle.

We’ve got a sneak peek of a new project we’re working on for training, which we’re really excited to share with you. On top of that, we’ve some new staff members for you to meet, so please come along and say hello!

We’re raising money for Dementia UK at the show, so pop by and help us support a worthy cause if you can. We have plenty of those popular BPCA tape measures, so why not grab one for your toolkit and pop a few pennies in the collection tin

And the cherry on the top? Our coffee lounge will let you catch up with people you’ve not seen in years, plus finally meet those you’ve only ever seen over Zoom – PestEx is your chance to make those connections.

While PestExtra went better than we could have ever hoped (it even won an award!) it was never going to replace our beloved PestEx.

So if you haven’t already registered, hopefully you’ll now agree that PestEx is the not-to-be-missed event of 2022 and you’re opening up the website to register now

Visit the PestEx website to make sure you and your team are on the guest list and have that all-important free entry to our competition. 

See you there!

Best wishes from BPCA’s Events team.

PestEx checklist

  1. Register today
    Beat the queues for admission by pre-registering online. It takes two minutes.

    We’re all busy bees, but staying connected with your sector is vital. On 16-17 March, make sure the work diary says ‘PestEx’.

    Make a real event of it and bring some pestie pals. If you’re the boss, bring a couple of your team with you and do some team building.
  4. Shout about it
    Going to events like the pest management show helps show your clients that you’re serious about your profession. Do a social media update, a news item on your website or even pop it on your ‘out-of-office’.

    The full seminar schedule and exhibitors floor plan are out now so make good use of them, and highlight any presentations or exhibitors you really want to visit. With 94 exhibitors and two seminar theatres, you need to maximise your time.
