British Pest Management Awards ceremony just made PestEx that little bit bigger

With the number of enquiries for BPMA tickets, BPCA has decided to move the awards ceremony from the Giant Robot on Canary Wharf, to PestEx – the pest management show.

PestEx is the largest gathering of pest management professionals in the UK, and capable of accommodating everyone who wants to see the awards. The Giant Robot will now host a BPMA and PestEx Afterparty where nominees and PestEx visitors alike can unwind and celebrate the sector together. After nominations closed, the BPMAs received three times more entries compared to the inaugural awards - surpassing everyone’s expectations.

Ian Andrew said,

“We took the decision to bring the British Pest Management Awards ceremony into PestEx based on demand.

“We simply would not have been able to seat everybody at the same time at the Giant Robot.

“At the end of PestEx day one, we’ll have a drinks reception and short ceremony to recognise the awards.

Those with tickets will then move on to the Giant Robot Afterparty to continue the celebrations.”

The BPMA award ceremony will be held at 4.15pm on day 1 of PestEx in the large technical theatre after the exhibition closes at 4pm.

The ticketed Afterparty will start from 6.30pm at the Giant Robot, Canary Wharf. People heading to the after party after the ceremony can do so via cable car, DLR or a short taxi ride.

Jo James, BPCAs Event Manager, said:

“The Giant Robot lends itself really well to attendees and exhibitors from the exhibition carrying conversations on into the evening, in a much more informal setting.

“Based on interest, tickets will sell-out, so book early to avoid disappointment!”

“As PestEx has now sold out, we’re very excited about the 20-21 March!”

Each attendee at the Afterparty will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a drone, as well as be able to enter other prize draws on the evening, and enjoy a range of activities in the venue.

Aftershow party tickets available now

Tickets are £79 for BPCA members and £99 for non-members.

The price includes a drinks reception, five drink stamps, a food passport (four portions from ‘street food’ style vendors), and live entertainment.

Tickets are strictly limited.
