Professional Pest Controller (PPC) Magazine, BPCA’s trade magazine, has been crowned magazine of the year by the Trade Association Forum at Wednesday night’s Best Practice Awards at the historic Drapers Hall in London.

Magazine of the year award 2017

The annual awards evening is formally supported by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with the aim to recognise, reward and promotes best practice amongst Trade Associations in the UK.

Award winning PPC MagazineCommitment to delivering high-quality products for members

Simon Forrester, BPCA Chief Executive and Editor of PPC Magazine said:

A lot of work and resources goes into our PPC magazine, which forms a key part of the overall communications strategy. We gave the magazine a fresh lease of life last year and it’s proving to be successful, so to win this award is the icing on the cake”

This award marks the fourth significant award win for the association in a short period:

PestEx, BPCA’s international exhibition for pest management, made it to the Best Practice Awards short list too, recognising the association’s commitment to deliver excellent quality products for members and the sector as a whole.  

What’s next for PPC?

PPC Magazine has gone through a significant development process over the last year with new regular features and more content covering a larger variety of technical and better business issues – all targeted at the professional pest management community and BPCA member organisations.  

Marketing and Communications Manager, Ben Massey said;

“We’re not done yet – we’ll soon be launching the new online platform for PPC Magazine so members, affiliates and the sector as a whole can access articles across more platforms than ever before. As well as full issues being available on our website, the best feature articles from our back catalogue of 87 editions will slowly be made available to everyone. It’s an exciting time to be working on the magazine.”

You can read back issues of the magazine in our PPC sections of the website. The 88th edition of the award winning magazine will be available in early September.
