PestWorld 2012 sets record for international representatives


October 24, 2012

FAIRFAX, VA.—More than 3,100 pest management professionals—including a record number of international representatives—enthusiastically navigated more than 100,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space during the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA’s) PestWorld 2012, held Oct. 17-20 in Boston. Proving itself once again as the premier platform to conduct domestic and international business in the pest management industry, exhibitors and attendees alike reported PestWorld 2012 to be “the most cost-effective and efficient way to do business, shop for new products and services, and stay on the cutting edge of industry technology.”  

With expert-led educational sessions, attendees discovered the latest business trends and earned valuable recertification credits. Highlights this year included NPMA’s Management Institute; Rodent, Termite, and Ant Pest Academies; Technicians’ Days; Small Business Saturday, the return of the NPMA Thought Leader Program; and the Bed Bug Symposium.

Additionally, PestWorld featured General Session speakers Kyle Maynard, Paul Begala and Michael Murphy. During the Opening General Session, quadruple amputee Maynard delivered his message that no obstacle is too great to overcome.  On Friday, Begala and Murphy provided attendees with a lively, unvarnished political debate.

“The packed educational sessions and keynote addresses and the well-attended special events demonstrate the industry’s desire for an event with an emphasis on learning and networking,” says NPMA Acting Executive Vice President Bob Rosenberg. “This year’s event provided sales leads and nurtured existing client relationships for companies operating within the pest management industry.”

Exhibitor feedback was overwhelmingly positive, he adds: “PestWorld offers an unmatched opportunity to meet in person with thousands of prospective qualified buyers, and this year, that’s exactly what our exhibitors did.”

Make plans now to be in Phoenix, Oct. 23-26, 2013, for next year’s PestWorld.  If you have any questions or comments, contact
