Over 40 exhibitors

We’ve got all our regular exhibitors together (and some new ones too!) ready to show off their latest products and offers. You’ll be able to visit the stands, have a chat or video chat with members of staff on the stands and have a look around at what they have to offer. 

Take a look at the full list of exhibitors here.

Five seminar theatres

The seminar theatres at PestEx are always popular so this time we’ve got five theatres running across three days, with the bonus of an on-demand area so you can catch up if you miss anything! 

View full agenda

Roundtable sessions

We’re giving you the chance to get involved with some hot topics by joining our roundtable sessions.

CPD points galore

The digital environment helps us to track what you’ve learnt. As long as you’ve submitted your CPD number when registering, we’ll log everything for you and add it to your points for the year. 

There are up to 10 structured CPD points available over the three days. PestExtra keeps track of what you’ve done such as the stands you’ve visited, the questions you’ve answered, the seminars you’ve watched and the network events you’ve taken part in.

At the end of your visit, your activity will be converted to CPD points (1 point per hour of CPD activity), and you’ll automatically have the appropriate amount of CPD points added to your BPCA Registered or Basis Prompt account.

It’s that simple!

Coffee and catch up

Networking areas so you can catch up with faces old and new, though we’re afraid you’ll just have to pop the kettle on yourself this time! 

And even though you won’t be able to pick up any free pens at PestExtra, that doesn’t mean you’ll leave empty-handed. Every visitor will be emailed a pack which may include
special offers and giveaways you can claim after the show.

Scavenger hunt and prizes

While you won’t be able to walk around collecting freebies at PestExtra, we do have a huge scavenger hunt planned across the three days with some exciting prizes already donated!

When you sign in to the event, you’ll see a leaderboard which will keep track of the points you gain while in the event, and where you sit in the race to the top!

How do I collect points?

Some activities will automatically gain you points such as attending seminars, watching on-demand videos, completing a session survey, visiting exhibitor stands.

Others are designed to help you work for them, such as answering trivia questions. You’ll get answers from specific exhibitors. You might get a point for answering polls in sessions.

And you’ll get other points fo participating in a roundtable discussion.

Then there are some just for fun, such as uploading a photo to your profile so people can see who you are or gathering secret passwords from exhibitors.

The more you explore, the more points you’ll get. Points mean prizes!

The more points you get, the more chances you have of winning. For every 500 points you collect, you’ll get one ticket for our virtual raffle. We’ve got some great prizes already
lined up, and more will be announced in the run-up to the show...

  • Killgerm vouchers (£200)
  • Barrettine vouchers (£50)
  • Amazon vouchers (£50)
  • Just Eat vouchers (£25)
  • Virgin Wines hamper
  • Coffee hamper
  • Birchmeier backpack sprayer
  • Lodi Digrain Bugster
  • Bell Laboratories goody bags
  • BPCA goody bags
  • Beer Hawk Hampers
  • Echo Dot
  • Anker wireless earbuds
  • Mini drone
  • Kindle Fire.

The more you explore, the more points you’ll get. Points mean prizes!

On-demand area

We appreciate that you won’t be able to make all of the seminar sessions at PestExtra. We’ll be adding them into the On-Demand area after they have been shown live, for you to view at your leisure during the event.

It’ll be a bit like Netflix for pest control!

Alongside the recordings from our seminar theatres we will also have:

  • Introductions from each of the BPCA’s four committees, showing you their roles in the Association and how you can get involved
  • No lockdown for those pesky pests: keeping customers and staff safe in a pandemic with Vicki Sims from Ladybug Pest Control
  • Bell Laboratories PCO iQ Video with Michael Sims from Bell Laboratories
  • Terms, conditions and contracts for pest management companies with Hazel Napier from BEB Consultancy (UK)
  • Plus much, much more.

So what are you waiting for? Join us at PestExtra 2021!
