IS PESTEX BETTER? NO, JUST DIFFERENT!


PPC Live first began in 2014 as a result of wanting to make the pest control industry accessible for everyone - not just those who are able to attend PestEx in it’s home at ExCel in London. We designed a show that moves around the UK, based on the requests of our members.

ExCel is a fantastic space, but it has limits. Being out of the city centre means we can do an outside seminar area with practical demonstrations alongside the ever-popular, PestEx-style indoor seminar sessions.

We decided to make this a one day show, rather than the usual two days of PestEx. We thought this way people can come for the day and see everything they want to, while still gaining those all important CPD points.

PPC LIVE - THE STORY SO FAR

 Three Counties Showground Malvern

In 2014, the first PPC Live was held at the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford, Manchester. It was off to a great start with 351 visitors and feedback showing that it was definitely a success. The first PPC Live gave us loads of ideas, so we set about building on its success for the next one. 

In 2016, the show moved to the East of England Showground in Peterborough, following the same principles. Both exhibitors and visitors grew again!

Now in 2018, after feedback from the pest management community, we will be in the South West of England at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Anyone who organises or attends a repeat event appreciates it is always a challenge to keep events fresh with something new to see and new topics to talk about. PPC Live 2018 is set to have more packed in than ever before. More exhibitors, more seminars and more bacon – just make sure you're re-registered.
