British Pest Management Awards 2019 shortlist announced

The shortlist for the second ever British Pest Management Awards has been announced. With significantly more nominations, plus the new awards - the independent judging panel had their work cut out for them.

Back by popular demand, the British Pest Management Awards 2019 is a huge celebration of the excellent job the pest management sector does to protect public health.

BPMA 2019 Shortlist out now

In less than a month, the awards ceremony will take place at the end of day one of PestEx - the pest management show, at the London ExCeL. You’re all invited to the Technical theatre at the end of the day to see the ceremony take place.

The celebrations will then move on to the Giant Robot on Canary Wharf with the ticketed Afterparty. We’ll be hopping on the DLR and grabbing a drink and some food, and congratulating our winners.

BPMA Afterparty what you get

Congratulations to all the shortlisted companies and individuals. It really was a mammoth task going through so many applications and narrowing down to this short list. Just getting this far through the process is an achievement, so I hope you’ll all celebrate your achievement, whether it’s with us at the BPMA Afterparty, or with your colleagues. Thank you again to our judging panel. Their hard work and integrity make the BPMAs possible.

Kevin Higgins, Chair of the BPMA judging panel
