Change of Venue for 75th Anniversary Celebrations and British Pest Management Awards (BPMAs)

The location of the BPCA 75th Anniversary Celebrations has changed and will now be held at the East Wintergarden. The special dinner will still take place on the evening of Wednesday 22 March, after day one of PestEx 2017.

The East Wintergarden is nestled between the iconic towers of Canary Wharf in London and will form a fitting setting to mark both the 75th Anniversary celebrations of BPCA and the inaugural British Pest Management Awards (BPMAs). The venue’s facilities include an impressive mezzanine level suspended above the main hall where the evening will begin with a drinks reception.

The evening was originally set to be at the Brooklyn Bowl, however, the venue closed unexpectedly, cancelling all of their bookings including the BPCA 75th Anniversary Dinner. A Facebook post from the Brooklyn Bowl reads: “Brooklyn Bowl London is closed until further notice. With The O2 Entertainment District undergoing building work, we face significant operational challenges.”

Events Officer, Lauren Day, has been extremely positive about the change:

“Although it’s a shame that the Brooklyn Bowl has had to close so suddenly, the new venue is truly stunning. The East Wintergarden has ample space for networking following the dinner and awards ceremony. As well as bars and lounge areas to keep guests occupied, we’ve arranged for casino tables to be provided for the evening’s entertainment.”

Roger Simpson, Managing Director of Lodi UK, headline sponsors of the 75th celebratory evening said,

“East Wintergarden certainly is a striking venue, and fitting for the evening’s celebrations. We’re delighted to be able to support the event and the LODI team are looking forward to joining other guests on 22 March.”

“May I be one of the first to congratulate the Association and its wider community on reaching the 75-year milestone. Here’s to another 75!”

Located in Canary Wharf the venue is in a convenient and accessible location, just two minutes walk from Canary Wharf Station and the Jubilee Line. To enquire about ticket availability, or if you have any questions about the changes to the Anniversary dinner in general, contact the events team on events@bpca.org.uk
