Open to all pest management professionals operating in the UK, the awards ceremony will take place at BPCA’s 75th Anniversary dinner at the o2 Arena’s Brooklyn Bowl, on the 22nd March following day one of PestEx 2017.

Said Kevin Higgins, Chairman of the BPMA judging panel,

The free to enter BPM awards boast the following categories:

Del Norton Award

Unsung Hero Award
