  • Record Breaking Attendance Marks Successful PestWorld 2018

    The National Pest Management Association is pleased to announce record breaking attendance at PestWorld 2018! Over 4,000 pest management professionals from across the globe convened at PestWorld last month in Orlando, Florida, making this NPMA’s most well-attended annual conference since its’ inception in 1933.

    “It’s no secret that PestWorld has proven itself once again as the premier pest management event in our industry,” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “With packed educational sessions and a sold-out exhibit hall, this year’s event demonstrated the industry’s desire for an event with emphasis on learning and networking.”

    With expert-led educational sessions, attendees discovered the latest business trends and earned valuable recertification credits. Highlights this year included educational tracks covering the latest trends in pest management, online marketing strategies and impactful thought-leader sessions.

    Additionally, PestWorld featured inspiring General Session speakers Yossi Ghinsberg and Dennis Snow. During the Opening General Session, Ghinsberg delivered his message that nobody can be courageous unless fear comes first, fear is the guide that shows you the way. On Thursday, Snow shared stories of his time working at Walt Disney World and offered attendees advice on how little moments of ‘wow’ add up when it comes to customer service.

    Exhibitor feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

    “With the strong participation of PMP’s this year, vendors had a remarkable opportunity to meet in person with thousands of prospective buyers,” said Stumpf. “I am proud that PestWorld can be the platform for educating PMP’s on the latest research and technology to ensure our industry continues to make a positive impact on society by protecting public health and property.”

    Make plans to join us in San Diego, California, October 15-18 for PestWorld 2019.

  • Celebrate the Industry During National Pest Management Month

    National observance celebrates the critical role of pest professionals in protecting our health, homes and property

    The Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA), which serves as the consumer marketing and public outreach arm of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), is working to spread awareness about the importance of partnering with a licensed pest control professional during National Pest Management Month in April. For more than 40 years, this annual designation has acknowledged the pest management industry’s ongoing commitment to the protection of health, food and property from common pest threats. PPMA will spend the month educating consumers about the essential role pest professionals play in protecting the quality of life here in the U.S. while also promoting the importance of proactively protecting homes from pests all year long.

    “Pest control professionals don’t just get rid of pests, they work to keep us safe from all the potential health and property risks that pests bring along with them. Informing the public about these threats is critical and it shows the real value pest control services provide well beyond just removing an infestation,” said Cindy Mannes, executive director of PPMA. “PPMA works to share these important messages with consumer audiences all year long, but we also hold this observance every April to urge the industry to join the conversation and to participate in this special awareness initiative.”
