The final numbers are in, and PestWorld 2015 was one for the record books.
With more than 3,300 pest management professionals (PMPs) in attendance, PestWorld 2015 was officially the largest trade show yet.
Held in Nashville, Tenn., this year’s event brought together some of the brightest minds in the industry.
Featuring, numerous educational sessions and a show floor full of products, PMPs had access to the newest trends and products available today. The festivities also included motivational presentations by Alison Levine and Jason Dorsey.
Filling out the more than 120,000 square feet of exhibit space were the 207 exhibitors eager to talk shop with everyone. Chances are, if you had a question about something in the industry, someone (or probably a lot of someones) could answer your question.
