PRESS RELEASE

When: 2-5 November 2021
Where: MGM Grand Hotel, Las Vegas, USA

Organised by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), PestWorld provides an ideal opportunity to experience the scale of the industry on a global basis, to meet pest professionals, establish new contacts, and network with friends and established industry colleagues.

The exhibition is the heart of the event and features over 150 exhibitors representing every segment of the pest management industry, including manufacturers, distributors and business services launching new products, showcasing cutting-edge technology and demonstrating new ways for the pest management professional to be more successful.

In 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event was successfully held virtually. With restrictions now easing, this year’s gathering is to return to its usual format as a face-to-face event.

“The whole industry is so excited to once again come together to meet colleagues and make new contacts,” stated Dominique Stumpf, NPMA CEO. “The exhibition should be mega exciting with two years' worth of new products and services to catch-up on.”

Covid-19

Aware that travel restrictions currently still exist for some international delegates, the event organisers have created a dedicated 'International Guests PestWorld 2021' web page.

This is where travel information and relevant plans for the event will be updated as the situation, hopefully favourably, develops. 

Whilst Covid-19 regulations have eased within the US, allowing events like this to happen, it is hoped travel restrictions will have been relaxed prior to PestWorld 2021, permitting attendance by international visitors.

As Dominique Stumpf explains: “We are very aware of the issues surrounding travel and access into the US for our international delegates. The situation is changing rapidly so we are waiting to see how this summer changes any travel restrictions.

"We will do everything possible to best serve our international members if they can’t attend in person.”

Details covering the PestWorld 2021 programme, exhibition information, hotel reservations and delegate registration are available on the dedicated website.
