First ever ICUP webinar to be held in March

The International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) is to hold its first free-of-charge on-line webinar on 9 March 2021.


Until 2020, the ICUP events consisted of a conventional conference, held every three years. However, with the global Covid-19 pandemic, such conferences are not currently possible, and the tenth conference which was due to be held in Barcelona, Spain, had to be postponed.

The webinar will consist of a series of presentations by leading scientists on a range of stimulating urban pest topics, with an opportunity for a questions and answers session with the speakers.

Date: 9 March 2021
Time: 3pm GMT
Duration: 3 hours

For those who are unable to attend the live event, recordings of the presentations will also be available for viewing later.

Full details of the programme and the registration process will be posted and regularly updated on the ICUP website.

An ICUP spokesperson commented, "These are unprecedented times, and the ICUP is adapting to the current challenges in order to continue to serve our community.

"The Executive Committee looks forward to seeing you once again on 9 March, and in the meantime wishes everyone well in these challenging times."


If you're holding an online event or webinar that would be useful to those working in the pest management industry, let us know.
